Born Feb. 3, 1861, near Dungannon, Va. He was the twelfth of fourteen children of Andrew Jackson and Sallie Hutchinson Addington. His father was a local preacher of the Methodist Protestant Church and his home was one of true piety and devotion. Had public school education. Licensed to preach in the M. P. Church at 16. Admitted to Virginia Conference of Methodist Protestant Church in 1882 and served in that Conference for nine years. Received into Holston Conference, M. E. Church, South, 1891. Served fourteen circuits and was eleven years district evangelist. His entire ministry was fervently evangelistic. He built ten churches and three parsonages. He was a traveling preacher for thirty-nine years. He was twice married: (1) Mrs. Elizabeth Fugate, Nov. 9, 1882. They had three children; (2) Miss Pearl Mitchell, daughter of Rev. W. D. Mitchell. He was a very large and strong man, but as he approached threescore and ten his strength became uncertain; nevertheless he continued to preach and do revival work to the end. He died June 16, 1931, in the parsonage at Cripple Creek, Va. Buried at Rural Retreat, Va.
