In the 1900-1901 Center Ass'n Minutes, it is recorded "Rev. H.S. Huckeby as pastor at Summers Chapel" Maxwell,(Pontotoc Co) OK. He was in a list of preacher's names the association accepted as ordained ministers after examination, and issued them a Certificate of Ordination...showing they had recently come into the area.
Rev. "San" Huckeby, organized the Free Will Baptist church at Non,(Hughes Co) OK in 1908, as records and personal knowledge attest; the Association records further prove "H.S. Huckeby" was in the area, and no other minister with an "S" in their name can be found in church records with Huckeby surname.
In the 1901 Minutes, Minister's names and ages, showed him to be "43 yrs" which agrees with his 1858 accepted DOB. In the 1902 session, he was elected to preach, and then was elected to be Moderator of the Center Ass'n.
In 1908, he is credited with organizing a FWB church in Non, Hughes Co. OK, just after statehood. He was well liked and remembered for years after by this old church.
