About Reverend Pleasant B. Chandler

  • from the Waco Times-Herald February 18, 1904 

Gatesville, Tex., Feb. 10.-- Rev. P. B. Chandler died at his home near this place Monday evening. He came to Texas as a missionary in 1846 and has ever since been actively engaged in the work of the ministry, preaching to a large congregation here a few days previous to his eighty-eighth birthday, which occurred January 27. In the memories of Z. N. Morrell, a pioneer preacher of Texas, is the following concerning the beginning of his work in Texas:

"No ship that ever plowed the waves between New Orleans and Galveston ever brought a more valuable cargo for Texas than the one that landed Elders J. W. D. Creath, P. B. Chandler, Henry L. Graves and Newt Hill. Elder Graves was under a call of the Board of Trustees of Baylor University, the others under appointment of the Southern Baptist Convention as missionaries."

Bro. Chandler, in association with R. E. B. Baylor, Dr. Rufus Burleson and others organized the first Baptist Convention of Texas in 1848. In his death the last survivor of that period passed away. His influence in the making of Texas history will be lasting and far reaching.
