----------------------------------------------------
"Rev. R.A. Coats, son of Rev. D. N. Coats was bn in Chenango Co., NY, July 3, 1842. He studied at Spring Green Academy, Wis., and served three years in the 23d Wis. Vol Infantry at Vicksburg, New Orleans, etc. He was converted Jan. 1, 1863, and ordained June 23, 1872. As missionary for the Little Sioux Valley Q.M. (Quarterly Meeting) in the winter of 1871-72, he was engaged in revivals at Lost Island, IA, and Elm Creek and Freedom, Minn. In April 1883, he entered upon a seven years' pastorate with the Spencer, IA church, during which he served the Minnesota Southern Y.M.(Yearly Meeting) in soliciting funds at the time of the famous "grasshopper scourge."
In 1880 he became pastor of the Mitchell, Burr Oak and Lincoln churches, enjoying a gracious revival with the latter, and three years later returned to Spencer.
In 1887, he removed to Idaho. Rev. Coats was a member of the General Conferences of 1874 and 1880; has served as superintendent of schools in Clay Co. IA, two terms; has been a member of the Iowa Home Mission Board six years and an assistant editor of the "Free Baptist" from its commencement. His varied labors have been very helpful to the cause in that region, and he is widely known and respected."
