Biography* Isaac Taylor Tichenor, Pastor, educator, home mission secretary (b. Spencer County, Ky., Nov. 11, 1825; d. Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 2, 1902

The son of James and Margaret (Bennett) Tichenor, he was a descendant of Martin Tichenor, said to have been of French extraction, who took the oath of allegiance at New Haven, Conn., in 1644 and was later one of the settlers of Newark, N. J. Martin's great-grandson Daniel, grandfather of Isaac, moved from New Jersey to Kentucky in 1790. At the age of 15 Isaac entered Taylorsville Academy, where he was under two able teachers, Moses and David Burbank, graduates of Waterville College, a Baptist school in Maine, and there received good training. An attack of measles, however, ended his schooling and left him with infirmities which troubled him for a long time. When he was sufficiently recovered, he engaged in teaching in a neighborhood school and was for three years connected with the Taylorsville Academy, as principal the last year.

In the meantime, at the insistence of local Baptists, he had begun to preach (licensed Dec. 19, 1846, at Taylorsville, Ky.), and his effectiveness soon won for him the title "boy orator of Kentucky." In 1847 he accepted an appointment as agent for the American Indian Mission Association, and while traveling about in its interest he was called as pastor of the Baptist church in Columbus, Miss., where in 1848 he was ordained. He served there until1850, then preached in revivals in Texas, was in charge of the church at Henderson, Ky., for a little over a year, and on Jan. 1, 1852, began a 15-year pastorate at the First Baptist Church, Montgomery, Ala. There he joined in the movement to establish a Southwide seminary in Greenville, S. C., and in 1860 preached its first commencement sermon. For a year during the Civil War he served as chaplain of the 17th Alabama Regiment-not confining himself strictly to his prescribed duties, for he acquired reputation as a sharpshooter and at the Battle of Shiloh went to the front of his regiment and rallied the wavering lines. Briefly in 1862 he was with Bragg's army as a missionary of the Domestic Board, and the next year took part in creating the Greenville Sunday School Board. In 1863 he became one of the owners of the Montevallo Coal Mining Company in Shelby County, Ala. As its president, in 1867 he began to make geological surveys of what later became the Birmingham mineral region, prophesying the coming greatness of that section of the state. He was one of the first in Alabama to mine coal scientifically with the use of steam machinery. In 1868 he resigned his church in order to devote himself to these material interests, feeling that such a move was in the best interest of the state. The death of his wife, however, caused him to change his plans and return to the active ministry. He accepted a call to the First Baptist Church, Memphis, Tenn., in 1871, but the next year returned to Alabama to be the first president of the State Agricultural and Mechanical College, located at Auburn.

During the 10 years that he served as head of this institution, he laid a broad and firm foundation for its subsequent development. He studied the agricultural, mineral, and manufacturing resources of the state, and in his many addresses awakened its people to a greater appreciation of them. He foresaw the industrial development which has since taken place and labored to prepare the way for it. Throughout this period he continued to maintain a position of leadership among the Baptists of the South, and in June, 1882, he resigned his collegiate position and became secretary of the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, the headquarters of which had recently been moved to Atlanta, Ga.

For 17 years he carried on the work of that office with a statesmanship that resulted in great constructive achievements. His leadership virtually saved the Southern Baptist Convention; he stemmed the current that was turning Southern Baptists toward the Northern society (the American Baptist Home Mission Society of New York) and turned it back, strong and bold, toward the Convention; inaugurated extensive work west of the Mississippi; spend about $100,000 on Texas and held the state to the Southern Baptist Convention; developed a definite plan of co-operative support of home mission work through regular giving; established a church building department; originated and sustained Sunday school literature until it was ready to go ahead on its own power under the Sunday School Board organized in 1891-in the face of opposition from the more aggressive and better equipped American Baptist Publication Society of Philadelphia; and made the South a base for world missions. He inaugurated work on the island of Cuba, enlarged the program for Negro education, initiated educational projects in the mountain regions, dealt with problems created by growing industrial centers, and encouraged women's work and Indian missions. In July, 1899, he retired from the chief responsibility of the home mission work and was made secretary emeritus. His health soon began to fail, and, after prolonged suffering, he died at Atlanta.5

Biography* From "Samuel Boykin" by A. B. Caldwell, published in "Men of Mark, Vol. V", Edited by William J. Northern, Published by A. B. Caldwell, 1910, pages 338-340.

Samuel Boykin, a leading business man of the little town of Brooks, comes of what is in our country an ancient stock. The Boykins were first settled in Isle of Wight county, Virginia, at an early date, and the name is preserved in the little town of Boykin to this day.

In 1741 a Cooper family came from Holland to Virginia. Thomas Cooper, St., a child of this family, was a great-great-grandfather of Samuel Boykin. He was a substantial man, a cabinet maker by trade, and a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses. His son, Thomas Cooper, born in Henry county, Virginia, in 1767, came to Putnam county, Ga., and died in Eatonton, Ga., in 1842. He was the first man to raise cotton for market in Hancock County. The cotton gin had not then been invented, and he invented a roller gin for his own use. Cotton was then worth from fifty to seventy-five cents a pound. Thomas Cooper was one of the original subscribers to the Georgia Railroad. He aided in the founding of Mercer University, was among the first subscribers and supporters of the Columbian Star, afterwards The Christian Index, published first in Washington, D. C., then in Philadelphia, and now in Atlanta.

He joined the Baptist Church in 1813, was prominent in the church councils, and was a deacon. Among his intimate friends were Jesse Mercer, Adiel Sherwood and Jesse H. Campbell. James C. Clark, of Atlanta., speaking of him to his grandson, the Rev. T. C. Boykin said, "A more devoted, useful, and spiritually minded man than Mr. Cooper I never knew."

Mr. Boykin's paternal grandfather was Dr. Samuel Boykin, who was born in 1790, in South Carolina, to which State his family had come from Virginia in 1775. In 1800 the family moved to Georgia. Dr. Boykin was graduated from the University of Georgia in 1807. He then attended lectures at the Pennsylvania Medical College, Philadelphia, and practiced for more than twenty-five years in Milledgeville, accumulating a large property. In 1836 he moved his family to Columbus; Ga., and transferred his planting interests to Alabama.

Dr. Boykin had scientific tastes, and considerable reputation in that direction, as he was the discoverer of several species of flowers and shells which bear his name. The celebrated English botanist, Lyell,'visited him in Columbus, and was much indebted to Dr. Boykin for many varieties of shells and flowers, and makes mention of him in his, books.

Dr. Boykin died in 1848, leaving a wife and eight children. Three of his sons were men of considerable prominence in religious circles. Samuel Boykin, D.D., was elected by the Baptist Convention editor of the Christian Index. He also published the "Child's Delight," and in 1871 that paper was merged with "Kind Words." From that day until his death he edited "Kind Words," the Baptist Sunday school paper. Then there was Rev. Thomas Cooper Boykin, graduated at South Carolina College, who was a planter in Alabama until called to the ministry in 1855. He was president of the Sunday School Board, and a Sunday school evangelist in Alabama for three years. He was then called by the Georgia Baptist Convention to do the same work in Georgia. Being peculiarly fitted for this work, he was then sent to Texas in the same line, and finally returned to Georgia, becoming incapacitated for public work by deafness. Another son of Dr. Samuel Boykin was the Rev. Leroy Holt Boykin, who was the father of our subject. He was born in Columbus, Ga., attended Mercer College, in Penfield, Ga., married Laura Hunter, and for many years was a planter in Alabama. After the Civil War he moved to Atlanta, and then to Brooks. He felt called to the ministry, and labored faithfully in that field until disabled by ill health.

The present Samuel Boykin, third of the name, and our subject, was born at Brooks, on January 25, 1876. After the ordinary school attendance, his education was completed in the boys' high school of Atlanta. He became an employee in a mercantile establishment in 1890, and in 1894, then only a youth of eighteen, in connection with his brother, Lee Holt Boykin, organized the mercantile firm of Boykin Bros., at Brooks, which continues in successful operation.

Mr. Boykin is a very active business man.     He is president of the Brooks Bank, president of the Brooks Gin Company, treasurer of the board of trustees of the Brooks School, treasurer of the Sixth District Agricultural College at Barnesville for the term expiring in 1913.

He is a thirty-second degree Mason, and a member of Yaarab Temple, of the Mystic Shrine in Atlanta. He is a member of the Commercial Club in Griffin, and a communicant of the Baptist Church, identified with the Democratic party, and a regular correspondent of the Atlanta daily papers.

From this it will be seen that Mr. Boykin is making a full hand in the day's work, and is reflecting credit upon himself, and adding to the long record of good works done by the members of his family.

On November 14, 1905, he married Miss Eunice Hand, a daughter of Starkey and Fannie (Lindsey) Hand. They have two little sons, Samuel, Jr., and Leroy Holt Boykin. 
Birth of Soncirca 1906 His son Samuel Boykin was born circa 1906.
