Pioneer Free Will Baptist preacher, pastor, and church planter. During his 73 years he pastored churches in Arkansas, California and Washington. He had little education but memorized hundreds of Bible verses and quoted them exensively in his sermons. In his early ministry he pastored as many as seven churches at a time and was a widely-used revivalist he baptized hundreds of converts. He was a moderator of the Arkansas State Association during his ministry. A biography was written about him in 1974. To a grandson he wrote: "Observe with care of whom you speak, to whom you speak, and how and when and where you speak."
