Willis Robert Blackmon

W.R. Blackmon

The following was written by Sis. Suzanne Blackmon Stull, the granddaughter of Elder W.R. Blackmon:

“Elder Blackmon was born September 15, 1888 and died September 28, 1966. He was baptized into the Little Zion Church of Navarro County Texas in June of 1905, by Elder A. F. Grafton. He married Caroline Hodge January 20, 1908. To them 11 children were born”.

“Elder Blackmon received a hope in his sixteenth year while hearing his sweet mother sing, "How Happy's Every Child Of Grace That Feels His Sins Forgiven." He made his first attempt to speak in the name of the Lord the first Saturday in November of 1913. He was soon licensed by the church and was ordained to the ministry in November of 1918”.

“When Elder Blackmon was physically able, he was a faithful and devoted pastor and always a most confident counselor on the Holy Scriptures”.

“He served many churches during his ministry. To name a few; Mt. Zion in Teague and New Providence in Cameron Texas. He also held numerous appointments with other churches in Texas. One might remember the story of a preacher who fell in the baptistry at First Church in Dallas while preaching. He simply said, "Bring on the candidate, I'm already wet." This was Elder Blackmon. He was blessed to baptize 9 of his 11 children and a host of others”.
