Tribute to Darwin Chase Lippincott
Darwin C. Lippincott, eldest son of Curtis and Elizabeth Babcock Lippincott, was born at Rum Creek, Logan Co., Ohio, July 31, 1857. A few years before the above mentioned date, Curtis Lippincott moved from Clark County, Ohio, to Rum Creek, at which place his son Darwin spent the most of his boyhood days, being educated in the district school. He was married to Miss Evaline Van Horn, daughter of Lewis (R.) and Sarah Van Horn, March 27, 1879. The subject of this sketch was religiously inclined. Very early in life he pondered over questions pertaining to the salvation of his soul, and was brought to Christ at the age of eighteen, under the preaching of Elder C.M. Lewis. He was baptized by Elder S.H. Babcock in June, 1875. He became a constant attendant upon religious services, and was very much influenced by the preaching of Elders C. M. Lewis and J. L. Huffman. As a result of their influence, Darwin began to realize that the Lord had a work for him to do. Often did he say to himself, "If I could only preach with the power that those men possess, many souls might be saved." As he had promised the Lord "To do whatever He wanted him to do," he began to make preparations for the gospel ministry. Knowing that he must have a better education to do the Lord's work well, he entered Salem College in the autumn of 1893. During his first four years in school, he preached for the Middle Island and Green Brier churches. His first regular pastorate was with the church at Salemville, Pa., which he served for two years and three months, beginning July 1, 1897. He was ordained by the Salemville church January 28, 1899, by a Council composed of Rev. O. U. Whitford, D. D., President T. L. Gardiner, of Salem College, and Rev. M.G. Stillman. Returning to Salem in October 1899, he preached for the Salem, W. Va., church for two years, during which time he studied in Salem College. During the summer of 1900 he went out with the Salem College Quartette to do evangelistic work at Roanoke, Berea, Lost Creek, and Calhoun County, W. Va. This he considers a very bright chapter of his ministry. In 1901 he accepted a call to the Middle Island, Green Brier and Black Lick churches, where he served for one and one-half years. Owing to the failure of his wife's health, he thought it best to make a change. After preaching for the Garwin, Iowa church for three years, he accepted a call to the Jackson Center, Ohio church, where he preached his first sermon April the 7th, 1906. We are pleased to have Elder Lippincott among us and feel assured that his pastorate here will be a great spiritual benefit to our church and community. May the blessing of God ever rest upon him and his work. -- Huffman Simpson
