THOMAS C. STACKHOUSE is of French extraction, and was born in Louisiana,
July 2, 1840. Losing his parents, he came to Kentucky at the age of
fifteen. He was educated at Georgetown college, where he graduated in
1858. He professed religion while attending college, and was baptized
into the fellowship of Georgetown church, by A. W. LaRue, in March,
1857. He was licensed to preach at Stanford, while studying theology
under A. W. LaRue, March 10, 1860. He entered the theological
department of college, the following fall, and was ordained to the
ministry at Mt. Gilead church, in Green county, in August, 1863, by
Henry McDonald and John James. He was pastor of the churches at Mt.
Gilead and Greensburg, in Green county, and Columbia, in Adair, a number
of years. He took charge of the First Baptist church in Owensboro,
about 1876. After preaching here several years he moved to Fayette
county. He declined a call to the First Baptist church in Lexington on
account of that church's tolerating its members in selling whiskey. He
afterwards took charge of the churches at David's Fork, in Fayette
county, and Winchester, in Clark county, preaching two Sundays in the
month to each, which position he is still occupying (1885). Mr.
Stackhouse is a fine pulpit orator, and is held in high esteem by his
