S. N. Shouse was born in Bath county, Kentucky, July 24th, 1838; but while he was still an infant his parents moved to Missouri, where he was raised. At the age of 20 he obeyed the gospel, under the preaching of Dr. W. H. Hopson. He received a fair education, and spent the early years of his life in teaching. He was married in Kentucky, Oct. 8th, 1863, to Miss Caroline Moffett, daughter of Dr. H. J. Moffett, now of Lancaster, Dallas county, Texas. He began preaching in 1869. In 1871 he moved to Texas, and now resides near Coperas Cove, Coryell county, preaching in all that region round about. He has been instrumental in bringing many into the fold, among them Sister Shouse, who had been reared a Presbyterian. Bro. Shouse exemplifies the text, "speaking the truth in love."
