    Hi folks

    I am starting this thread as a place where folks can post a URL or a mini-biography of well-known or influential Baptists of yesteryear. Lots of times their names are brought up, and I for one, would like to know more about them.

    Warm regards
    Jeff

    Brother Jeff -
    Good thread topic. I've got a good resource for you on this one. With Christmas approaching, the Southern Baptist make a special offering to the Lottie Moon fund. Here is her story:http://www.sbhla.org/bio_moon.htm

    If you click the link "biographies at the top of the page, you will find a dozen or more biographies of famous SBC figures.

    - Clint

    Hi folks

    Here is a biography of Rev. William Troy:
    http://docsouth.unc.edu/neh/troy/troy.html

    Troy was born in slavery and escaped to freedom in Canada. He also converted from the Episcopal to Baptist churches. Interesting story.

    Jeff

    I am resurrecting Brother Jeff's topic here to post another biography of an early Baptist leader: John Waller. This page is found on the website for a church he established himself in 1769. I posted this in the Bible reading forum and realized it would servr well here as well. Enjoy!http://www.wallers.org/historypastor.htm

    May God bless you

    I have a best friend by the name of John Waller--a friend since childhood, and one of the staunchest Baptists you'll find anywhere. Amazing.

    Bro. Jeff, it's great to see you back. I can speak for a number of us in saying that you have been greatly missed. You have been a great help to me both on and off of the Baptist Board. May God's blessings abide on you richly.

    Also, there is a question Kiffin asked on the "Views of Baptist Origins" that relates specifically to Primitive Baptists which you probably can address more specifically than I. If you have time, take a look at it. Thanks.

    Finally, to all: Here is a site that has some Baptist Portraits (short biographies with a picture, including Backus, Gill, and Christmas Evans).
