King, minister and farmer, Warm Springs, Ark. Although young in years, Mr King has already done much good in the world by administering to the spiritual wants of his fellowmen and by living a life of such consistency and purity as can not fail to have its effect on the rising generation. His birth occurred in Georgia on the 13th of January 1852, and he is the son of Carter and Louisa (Flanigan) King, natives of Georgia and of Irish parentage. Carter King was a farmer and a tanner by occupation, which he followed in Georgia until 1866, when he moved to Tennessee and settled in Roan County. He there farmed on rented land until 1869,when he came to Randolph County, Ark, and settled in Warm Springs Twp, where, in 1869, he purchased eighty acres. This he proceeded to improve but one year later moved into a different neighborhood, where he died shortly afterward, in March 1871. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, a member of the Baptist Church, and was well respected by all who knew him. He served one year during the latter part of the war in the Confederate service, and surrendered in 1865. Mr & Mrs King were the parents of eleven children, six now living: D.N., Rebecca F. (wife of F>M> Thornsberry), James M., Sarah E. (wife of H.C. Croger), Joseph J., and Mary L. (wife of James Hovis). Mrs King then married in 1873 Mr G.A. Barrett and by him became the mother of two children, one living. Mr & Mrs Barret are still living in this county. At the age of twenty years, D.N. King was married to Miss Mary S. Wooldridge of Arkansas, and immediately afterward engaged in tilling the soil. He had very little property at the time of his marriage (1872) but he is now the owner of 160 acres, of which severtyfive acres are under a good state of cultivation and with good buildings, etc. He is one of the enterprising citizens of this section, and lays a great deal of his success in life to the exertions of his companion. He was ordained a minister in the general Free Will Baptist Church, and began preaching Gospel on the 8th of October, 1882. Since thern he has performed the marriage ceremony for about nine couples and has baptized a large number of converts.
