DEACON LUTHER ELBERT VANOVER: This brother beloved was born near
Panther, Daviess County, Kentucky, on January 21, 1881, and is the
son of J. P. and Luvenia Short Vanover. He was reared on a farm and
attended the common schools at hand. He later studied at the Utica
Normal school. After obtaining a certificate he taught school for
four years in Daviess County. In the year 1906 he entered the real
estate business for himself. He has remained in this business to the
present time.
Our brother was converted at the age of fourteen and was
baptized into the fellowship of the Brushy Fork Church by Elder
Daniel E. Yeiser. He has served for several years as a deacon and
Sunday School teacher in the Third Baptist Church in Owensboro.
Since 1928 he has served as a messenger from this Church to each
annual session of the Association and has also served during this
time as the representative of the Church on the Executive Mission
Board of the Association. At the annual session of the Association
in 1942 he was elected to the office of Assistant Moderator.
Mr. Vanover was married to Miss Vernie Mohon on December 26,
1905. One son, Aubrey, blessed this union. Mrs. Vanover died in
1915 and on May 17, 1920, Mr. Vanover was united in marriage to Miss
Laura Henderson. One daughter, Helen Marie, blessed this union.
L. E. Vanover is highly respected by all who know him as a
Christian gentleman of the highest type. He has made a lasting
contribution to the life of his Church and to the Daviess-McLean
Baptist Association. According to the usual custom he will probably
be the next layman to be elected to the Moderator's Chair of the
Association.
