Pastor of Bethany A.R.P. Church for 34 years.

In 1852 after receiving his doctor of divinity degree he was assigned to Bethany Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Northeast Mississippi (Now Lee County, Mississippi). He served as Pastor of that church for 32 years.
Throughout his adult life he kept a detailed daily diary well known to scholars and historians of the American South as an important primary source of the study of southern history and culture. The Agnew Diaries are a part of the "Documenting the American South Collection" at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. They contain Agnew's thoughts, experiences and activities; local news; his comments on public events and the Civil War, during which he lived in the path of both armies, reconstruction and major national events.
