Brother James H. Mullinicks was born May 26, 1821; obeyed the gospel in 1852, and began preaching the gospel of Christ a few years later, which he kept up as opportunity afforded till his last illness, which terminated in death March 6, 1895. He was a pioneer in the cause of primitive Christianity in his section of country. Bakerville, Tenn., was his home much of his life. During the time I have known him he never gave his whole time to preaching. He followed milling and mill building, but in the meantime did what preaching he could, and in the aggregate did an immense amount of good. He had no use for anything in religion except the plain word of the Lord. He was therefore firmly opposed to all sorts of innovations and human inventions in the way of human societies to do the work of the church, instrumental music, and such like. He contended “earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints,” and wanted no sort of human wisdom mixed up with it. He also did much for the truth in his private conversations. He loved the truth well enough to talk about it as opportunity afforded. He read and studied the Bible extensively for his opportunities, and knew how to talk it, and in this way did much good. He was very decided in his convictions on the teaching of the Bible, and was ever ready to express them; so that all who knew him, knew just where to place him on all practical subjects. And, better still, he tried hard to live out in everyday life the religion he taught; so that while many dissented from his teaching, they could not say aught against his Christian life. He was closely endeared to the brethren and sisters in his own section of country, and is much missed by them since his death. His good wife had passed over the river before him, and he leaves ten children to mourn their loss of him. The real value of the life and work of such men is not generally realized until death takes them away, and the brethren begin to feel the loss of their counsel and influence. Brother Mullinicks will long be remembered both by the church and the community round about Bakerville. Though he is dead, his life and teaching will still speak, and many souls will yet be benefited by the tide of influence which he has started in behalf of Heaven’s truth. Let all prepare to meet him in a better home. E. G. S. - Gospel Advocate, June 13, 1895, page 383.
