GINES, John Wesley  1867-1941
We are taught in the work of God that man was created a little lower than the angels. Whatever this may mean to us, we are sure that the Marvelous Cabinet consisting of reason, Will, and Conscience, are God-given powers and by these man is distinguished from the beasts sof the field with capacity for higher rational life and Spiritual insight.
To this truth John Wesley Gines was awakened years ago by the birth of a moral personality.
In Bible terms we wold say he was "born again" or truly converted to Jesus, and later saw the consistency of the teaching of God's word relation to the doctrine of heart holiness, and our ransom powers being fully dedicated to God.
This was the experience that gave this good man a never dying zeal and fervor for the salvation of men and the prosperity of the cause of Christ.
It was the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that pressed the matter of a place of worship upon the heart of Bro. Gines while living near Taswell Crawford County Indiana.
There was no finance and not many people interested but despite the prevailing indifference and unfavorable surroundings - his faith touoched the God of Miracles and the church was erected. Grand revivals followed and many who were converted to Christunder the labors of John Gines have long since gone to their heavenly reward.
It was almost 26 years ago since Bro. Gines located in Daviess County North of Washington. Again the revival fire was kindled in his heart and plans were set in operation for an ingathering of Souls.
As a result of this inspiration more than one hundred and fifty people were converted to Christ in the old theater building on West VanTrees St. and a Free Methodist Church organized with forty-four Charter members.
Later followed the erection of the building, we worship in today. Bro. Gines has served the Church through all the reverses and problems that are common to those who carry responsibility in religious activities. Many times has he been elected as delegate to the Annual Conference of his Church. Also served as Local Preacher, Class Leader and Chairman of various committees. Yet with an humble attitude and congenial Spirit he won the hearts and love of many people in and outside of Church circles.
We would not forget while we mention the many virtues of this good man that a consecrated devoted mother in Israel shared her life in all the efforts which were crowned with success. Ida M. Burget to whom he was married November 24, 1887. Never failed to play the part of a faithful wife and an affectionate mother. For 53 years they have journeyed together and reared a family of six children. One having died at an early age.
Living are Rolla H. Gines, Washington, Indiana; Ray I. Gines, Bloomington, Indiana; Oral N. Gines, Washington, Indiana; Isis M. Hoss, Washington, Indiana; Dorothy B.Riggs, Bloomington, Indiana; and Herald M.Gines, Washington, Indiana beside 23 grand children and 3 great grand children.
Well done thou good and faithful servant, are the words of our dear Lord. Your toils have won for you a crown, up here is your reward.
What glorious things you shall behold. Eye hath not seen nor hath ear heard. But mansions fair so we are told, are for the saints so says the Lord.

MIX, JOHN S.
Obit: John S. Mix, 83 years, passed away August 3, 1877 at his home in Leavenworth, Indiana. He was born in Auburn, New York, May 15, 1794.
For nearly fifty years he has been a resident of our town, and was perhaps, the oldest citizen of the town. He united with the Presbyterian Church, on profession of his faith in Christ, on the 3rd day of February 1875. The sincerity of his profession and evidence of his conviction were shown by his love for the bible, and the testimony he gave of what God had done for his soul. During his last illness his mind was clear and strong, and he testified that "Jesus was with him in his affection". But two days before he passed away he said in answer to the question how he felt that "he felt just like a christian ought to feel". "If I could talk my feelings are inexpressible". To his widow there is much to give comfort in the last words of the deceased, but a few more weary days of waiting and then through
faith in his savior there may be a meeting never to sever, where trials and sorrows never come, in that land before the river.

ROBERSON, Dr. Lee
Renowned Minister Dr. Lee Roberson Dies At 97
Longtime Pastor Of Highland Park Baptist, Tennessee Temple Founder
posted April 29, 2007
Dr. Lee Roberson, longtime pastor of the Highland Park Baptist Church and founder and president of Tennessee Temple Schools, died Sunday morning at the age of 97.
Dr. Roberson was world-renowned in religious circles.
His longtime associate, Dr. J.R. Faulkner, wrote this account of his life:
He was born in a two-room log cabin on Nov. 24, 1909, and spent his first two years on a farm near English, Ind., a small town in the southern part of the state. In 1911, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Roberson, took him to a farm near Louisville, Ky., where his father farmed, worked on streetcars, and built homes to make a living. At the age of 14, he was led to the Lord by his faithful Sunday School teacher, Mrs. Daisy Hawes, and joined the Cedar Creek Baptist Church outside of Louisville.
After spending two years at the Louisville Male High School, where he received a diploma in public accounting when he was 14 years old, Dr. Roberson then attended the Fern Creek High School and was graduated after four years. While a student, he played football with the high school team.
Brother Roberson entered Old Bethel College in Russellville, Ky., in 1926, and finished the first year. There he worked at various jobs from washing dishes to scrubbing floors to pay his way. From Old Bethel College, he went to the University of Louisville to complete his college work with a major in history. He also completed his work for a degree at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. At the age of 19, he was called to a church in Jeffersontown, Ky., which he did not accept.
In his early years, Dr. Roberson was well known as a singer. Having studied at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and with the well-known teacher, John Samples, of Chicago, his services as a vocalist were in great demand. He served as a soloist on the staff of radio station WHAS of Louisville, Ky., and WSM out of Nashville. Doors were opening in the field of secular music. Dr. Roberson could have signed a contract with a certain man in the city of Nashville that, no doubt, would have led him to the top in music. However, he felt that this was not the thing the Lord wanted for him; so he refused to sign the contract.
The first church that Brother Roberson served as pastor was in Germantown, Tn., while he was going to college. In 1932, he was called to be pastor of the Temple Baptist Church in Green Brier, Tn. It was there that he discovered the truth of the second coming of Christ. After three years with the Green Brier Church, where the Lord wonderfully blessed, Dr. Roberson entered full-time evangelistic work in 1935. He served as evangelist of the Birmingham Baptist Association; and within two years, he conducted some fifty revivals in the Birmingham area.
It was while he was in Birmingham that he met Miss Caroline Allen, who, on Oct. 9, 1937, became Mrs. Lee Roberson.
On the first Sunday in November 1937, Dr. Roberson became pastor of the First Baptist Church in Fairfield, Ala.
In 1939, Brother Roberson was asked to be the state evangelist for Alabama. He felt this was not the Lord's will for him at the time, so the offer was not accepted.
On May 2, 1941, Lee Anne, the Roberson's oldest child, was born.
After five years with the Fairfield church, Dr. Roberson was called to the Highland Park Baptist Church in Chattanooga, in November of 1942. Brother Roberson, our pastor, is a man of God at home as well as at church. He has set an example of faithfulness and devotion to his family and to his convictions before his church and to the entire world. At home, he has sought to teach his children in the fear and admonition of the Lord around a daily family altar, which has reflected itself in the lives of the children.
Dr. Roberson's devotion to duty and to his convictions has laid upon him a demanding schedule that has caused him, throughout his life, to get up early and to burn the midnight oil in prayer and study of the Word of God and the writings of others that he might maintain his burden to reach as many souls for Christ as he can, by every possible means. New sermons are constantly pouring from his soul and new books from his pen.
Whether he be speaking from the pulpit of the Highland Park Baptist Church, the chapel platform of Tennessee Temple Schools, to his Men's Bible Class, or at one of many other special services, his messages are always fresh, fervent, and filled with the power of God. In speaking of him, someone has said, "He is truly the Spurgeon of our times."
Dr. Roberson's daily schedule began with Bible study and prayer at 6:30 in the morning, followed by breakfast and devotions with his family, a broadcast beginning at 8:30 a.m., and a chapel service at Tennessee Temple Schools at 10:00. His morning hours were also filled with private conferences with church people and students of Tennessee Temple Schools. His daily visitation program took him into the numerous hospitals of the city as well as homes of the church members.
Pastor Roberson's favorite Scripture...
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." -Romans 8:28
