DEACON ORION NOEL MAGRUDER: O. N. Magruder has been treasurer of the
District Mission Board of the Daviess-McLean Baptist Association
since 1928 and the Board never had a better and more faithful servant
in this office.
He was born at Habit, Daviess County, Kentucky, near Bethabara
Church, on December 23, 1879, and is the son of Dr. F. M. Magruder
and Nannie Jane Mobberly. His father was a practicing physician in
Daviess County for a number of years. He attended the Utica grade
schools and the Utica normal school and obtained a first class
teacher's certificate. He taught school for three years and was a
banker for twenty-four years. For the past ten years he has been the
efficient President of the Owensboro Federal Savings and Loan
He was converted at the age of nineteen and united with the Oak
Grove Baptist Church (now Utica) and was baptized by Rev. T. M.
Morton. After moving to Owensboro he placed his membership with the
Third Baptist Church. He was ordained a deacon of this Church on
February 17, 1926, and continues in that office to date. His work as
Treasurer of the Districts Mission Board has been outstanding. He is
faithful, accurate, prompt, and a man of integrity in this office.
The Board has had other good men to serve in this capacity but none
have excelled him. His kind, courteous, and quiet demeanor have
gained for him a multitude of friends. One thing can be said of him,
he is a Christian gentleman and Christian business man.
Mr. Magruder married Miss Willie May Stallings, the daughter of
a Baptist minister, on August 10, 1921. They have two children, Lina
Belle and Jane Noel Magruder. Their home life is ideal and
inspiring. The entire family holds membership with the Third Baptist
Church of Owensboro.
