|Birth: ||Nov. 3, 1888|
|Death: ||Mar. 12, 1966|
Loving son of John Marion and Irene Frances (nee Studstill) Prevatt.
John Pearl Prevatt married Ina Mabel Jones 19 Aug 1914 in Odessa, Lafayette County, Missouri with Bro. Richard Neeley Gardner as the officiant.
First and foremost, he was a faithful servant to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, a loving husband and father (grandfather and great-grandfather), a friend to all men, a teacher, and an evangelist. He was a staunch advocate of Christian unity without compromising God's holy Word.
J. P. remarked the most influential Christian he ever knew was Bro. James A. Harding.
From page 204 of the 31 Mar 1966 issue of the Gospel Advocate, Bro. Jasper G. Malphurs wrote:
"J. P. Prevatt was buried March 14 in the family burying ground near Trenton, Fla., Ebenezer Cemetery. He was seventy-seven. He and I had been friends from high school days. We both were students under the influence of James A. Harding in Potter Bible College, Bowling Green, Ky. He baptized me in 1907, after proving that I should be a Christian only; that sectarianism was wrong. He also performed my marriage ceremony in 1913. No preacher has done more for the church of the Lord in Southern Georgia and Florida than Brother Prevatt. He was the first president of the Georgia Christian School, formerly Dasher Bible School. He started Camp Oleno and served it for about twenty years. A great host of friends gathered for the funeral in the meetinghouse in High Springs, Fla., in appreciation of his life and works. Sister Prevatt and the three children survive him, with several grandchildren, having the comfort that he is now in his house not made with hands."
