S. N. SHOUSE was born in Bath county, Kentucky, July 24th, 1838; but while
he was still an infant his parents moved to Missouri, where he was raised.
At the age of 20 he obeyed the gospel, under the preaching of Dr. W. H.
Hopson. He received a fair education, and spent the early years of his
life in teaching. He was married in Kentucky, Oct. 8th, 1863, to Miss
Caroline Moffett, daughter of Dr. H. J. Moffett, now of Lancaster, Dallas
county, Texas.

He began preaching in 1869. In 1871 he moved to Texas, and now resides
near Coperas Cove, Coryell county, preaching in all that region round
about. He has been instrumental in bringing many into the fold, among them
Sister Shouse, who had been reared a Presbyterian. Bro. Shouse exemplifies
the text, "speaking the truth in love."
