The Gospel Messenger, 1886, Vol. 8 : Devoted to the Primitive Baptist Cause (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Gospel Messenger, 1886, Vol. 8: Devoted to the Primitive Baptist Cause I was born in Frank lin county, Tenn., Dec. 25th, 1821. My parents' names were Solomon wagner and Dicy Rus sel - the latter a daugh ter of Major Russel, who accompanied Jackson in his campaigns against the Indians. This I mention that such of his numerous offspring, with whom'iam not acquaint c'd, that see this, may know we are related. My father was'in very good circumstances when I first knew him, and was a farmer, and learned all his boys to be good farmers, of whom there were nine, and three daughters, all of whom lived to have families. Our education was limited, as people in that day did not take as much interest in education as now. My father died in the fall of 1840, and my mother in 1860, having been ne'ar sixty years a member of the Baptist Church. My father was for a long time a Baptist in principle, but never united with the church. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
