He sounded the Chariton ponds and made calculations of the number of hundreds of thousands of yards of earth necessary to make the filling for the first railroad into the state; the Pacific, to cross there. He was also one of the delegates that met at St. Charles to arrange for the building of the seeond railroad in the state, the North Missouri. He was engaged in the mercantile bus iness at Bridgeton for a few years, until 1854 when he removed to Hannibal and engaged in the hard ware business. At the beginning of the war, he with John B. Hender son of Iowa, served as peace com missioners that met at Quincy when Illinois feared an invasion from Missouri. For several years he was prominent in politics, serving two terms as a member of the Hannibal City Councfl and one term as Mayor the latter in 1861. in the trying period of the outbreak of the civil war. He also served one term as presiding judge of the Marion Coun ty court one term, and was probate judge. Bro. Hixson was married May 6 isoz to miss Manna k. tsiana, a ady of beautiful character. This union was blessed with hve chu dren, four of whom survive him: R. F.. of this city, B. E and R. L, o the Hixson Hardware Co., of Hanni bal, and L B., of Texas. The sons have cherished him: with marked affection and devotion, and made his last hours happy by their faith ful ministrations, three of them were present at his bedside when he passed away. In the early sixties Bro. Hixson united with the Baptist Church and was baptized by that dear man of uod, Kev. vv. u Busby. Me was licensed to preach by the Provl dence church in Sept 1863, and in Aug. 1864 he was ordained to the regular work of the gospel ministry by the same church. The presby tery was composed of the following ministers: Cristy Gentry, Nathan Ayers, Wm. Cleveland. J. S. Green and W. C. Busby. During his min istry Bro. Hixson served as pastor of the following churches: Provi dence 6 years, Palmyra 1 year. Bethel 27 years, Salem 4 years. Bethlehem 12 years, Philadelphia 7 years, Warren 5 years and Union 14 years. All of these pastorates were in Bethel Association. In ad dition to his work as pastor, Bro. Hixson did a vast amount of work as pastor-evangelist, in which he was eminently successful. He baptized more than twenty-five hundred per sons. Seven young men whom he baptized became useful and promi nent Baptist ministers. He was faithful as a pastor and was greatly loved by his congregations. He was popular with all classes and conditions of people, regardless of creed. But he excelled as a preacher He was in the strictest sense, a Biblical preacher. . When we look at him as a preacher we must un darstand that the Bible was the source from which he drew his ma terial. His sermons . were . not of the popular or sensational type, ..but were strong in thought... convincing in argument, stirring in their ap peals and subduing in their pathos. A 1 ' ' - i? ' '1.1 " ' ,1 , For sixty years he was in public life, and without a blot or stain, Bro. Hixson was unus Jally warm hearted, cheerful, kind and forgiv- ng. To those who enjoyed his con fidence he was communicative and strongly attached. He was chaste and pure in conversation, courteous in manner and loving in disposi tion. His death was not an eclipse, but a glorious sunset. He fought the good fight, he finished the course, he kept the faith Truly. he was a good man and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith, and much people were added unto the Lord." Funeral services were held in the First Baptist Church of this city Thursday afternoon, conducted by his pastor Rev, B. D. Weeks, as sisted by Rev. A. J. Thames, of Pal myra and Dr. E. McNair of this city. The funeral discourse, togeth er with a history of the life of the deceased was given by the pastor. The church was crowded with old friends, and deep feeling was man fest by the silent throng as the casket was borne away at the close of the service. The remains were conveyed to Hannibal and laid to rest in the Mt. Olivet cemetery be side the grave of his wife. "Nobly his course is run. splendor is round it. Bravely his fight is done, victory crowned it. In the high warfare of Heaven grown hoary He is. gone, like a summer sun. shrouded in glory." Free.
