Brief Sketch From A Hand Written History

Was born Feb. 16th, 1830, in the State of Georgia, Henry County. Had little school advantages in early life. When 21 years old, began the study of medicine under Dr. W.B. Johnson in Griffin, Ga. Graduated at Georgia Medical College of Augusta in the spring of 1853. Came to Alabama in April same year, and began the practice of medicine at PineApple Wilcox County, where I have lived till now. In 1849 I became anxious to be a Christian - thought I must have evidence of pardon before I could join the church, for which I sought prayerfully for months without success. Was told I would obtain evidence in being baptized - inspired with hope, I was immersed in July or August, same year by old brother S. Robinson, Protestant Methodist. Still failed to obtain desired witness of the spirit. Whilst reading medicine in Griffin 1851, I often heard such men as old Dr. Daniel Hook of Atlanta, J. J. Trott, S. Pinkerton, and others. My eyes were opened-I saw the light. Came to Ala. in April 1853, united with Church of Christ under preaching of Pickney B. Lawson of Marion, Ala. in summer of 1859, having been preaching ever since. My preaching has been mostly in Alabama, having preached some in Georgia - a little in Tennessee. Read with much interest before the civil war the Millennial Harbinger, American Christian Review, Gospel Advocate and other Christian periodicals. Most of these with Christian Standard since the war, with some others. All had their good with some exceptional qualities. In the course of time they split on the society question. Good and true brethren are doubtless on both sides.   I have always opposed the society as an innovation of God's plan. By its zeal for foreign missions, churches at home are much neglected. There is doubtless a dearth of piety and want of religious interest every where at this time - there is a cause for it. But I have far transcended my bounds and must stop. With Christian Love, D.
