Elder Homer Rush Shamblin - "(1972) I was born in Coleman County, Texas March 4, 1907 and reared by wonderful Primitive Baptist parents: J.A. and Virginia Shamblin, descendants from Georgia to Texas. November 12, 1929 I married Iris Greer. We were given three children: Cecil, Don and Mary Elizabeth. My first hope in my Lord was when I was very young, but my burning desire to be a member of the grand old church was about the age of 21. Also to preach His Word. However after years of misery, running from the impression, promising God if he would do this and that I would preach His Gospel, coming to the conclusion I could not bring God under obligation I joined the church third Sunday in Dec. 1947. I was ordained Dec. 24, 1950 at Pleasanton, California".

Elder Shamblin's obituary as written by his grandson: "It is with much sorrow that I write you of the death of Elder Homer Rush Shamblin on Wednesday, April 16, 1994. Grandpa came from Texas and was raised on a farm with eleven brothers and sisters. His father and mother, John Allen and Virginia Shamblin were members of the Primitive Baptist Church in Santa Anna, Texas. He often spoke of his labors of love on that old home place: picking cotton, thrashing wheat, milking cows and raising sheep. His special time was always in the early morning, when he could smell the mesquite trees in the early morning dew. Grandpa came to Pleasanton, Calif. in 1943, bringing his wife, Iris, and three small children. He supported his family working as a carpenter. On Sunday in 1947, he took his little family to church in Salida, California. Driving up to that sweet little church, Grandpa heard the old Gospel singing and a glorious sermon by Elder D. A. Layne, and his life was forever changed. He often said, beginning on that day and joining the Primitive Baptist Church in 1948 had been the happiest days of his life. In 1950 he was ordained as a minister, pastoring Little Vine Church in Dublin and then in Livermore, for over 50 years. Grandpa was among the Old School "hardshell" Baptist preachers, like Elder Sims and Elder Layne, whose wonderful sermons can lift us to the mountain tops. Grandpa was a man of many talents. He played the violin and the guitar and he had a wonderful singing voice. He wrote poetry and was a Corresponding Editor for many years of The Banner of Love newspaper. Through his religious writings and travels he was well known in the United States".
