Rev. E. N. Walne was born in 1867 the son of Isabella Jane Tabor and Thomas Jefferson Walne. After graduation from Mississippi College he attended the Baptist Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, and it was as a minister to the Ghent Baptist Church in Carroll County, Kentucky that he met a local girl, Claudia McCann, the daughter of Mary O'Neal and John J. McCann. They married on May 31, 1892; a few months they left the United States to become Baptist Missionaries to Japan. They lived several years in Kokura, then several more in Fukuoka before they settled in Nagasaki. They served over 40 years in Japan before his ill health compelled him to retire, and they returned to the United States only a few years before his death. He was the father of Florence Walne Farquhar, who was a professor of languages and had an important role in organizing the teaching of the Japanese language to United States Navy personnel during World War II. Much of Rev. Walne's legacy in Japan was destroyed by the dropping of the Atomic Bomb on Nagasaki, but he and his wife are still remembered as founders by the Nagasaki Baptist Church.
