T.J. EMBREE
- 1920
 
Of the earlier life of the Reverend T. J. Embree the writer is not informed. He was a well educated man and for some time a lawyer. However at the time he decided to go into the ministry he was teaching. It was under the influence of the Rev. H. W. Bowman (then pastor at Winnfield) that. Brother Embree determined to preach. He soon applied for license, after which he was admitted on trial into the Louisiana Conference and appointed to the Ringgold Circuit. While there he gave great satisfaction. From there he was sent to Plain Dealing. There the people soon became very fond of him. Indeed from the first he was a success in every way as a preacher. The writer has no knowledge of the particulars of his death. He was a devoted husband, a faithful father and a true friend. He has gone to his reward. I do not doubt. that he heard his Savior say: “Well done, good and faithful servant; enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” May God’s tender care be over his loved ones.
