    • J.H. Cason was selected as a member of the board of Missions.

      Apparently, there was a a lot of chaos in this convention. Dr. Hayden, the moderator, was not well versed in Parliamentary procedure. Seems that some newspapers commented negatively on how he was running the session. J.H. Cason rose to his defense and criticized the news coverage. He started to introduce resolutions condemning the local newspapers and was pulled down by Dr. Hayden, his good friend.

      There was also something called "The Reddick Matter". A committee on the affair returned a set of resolutions. Elder Battle rose in opposition.

      "J.H. Cason spoke in opposition to the Battle motion. Said 'he had been a missionary to Africa and did not feel that in doing so he was sacrificing his Southern principals, for he was a slave holder, and was opposed to social equality.'"

    is a leader of the "church party" and is instrumental in a split of the Texas Baptist Church 
    • At the Baptist Convention, a number of individuals were denied their seats on the basis of faulty credentials. A large dispute erupted over whether an individual delegate was the person seated at the convention, or whether the church that sent the delegate was the one seated, and then what sort of credentials were valid.

      This was the culmination of 15 years of infighting. The president of the Convention, Dr. Hayden of Dallas, was closely associated with J.H. Cason, who helped draft the resolutions that led to the split.

  • Notes 
    • J.H. Cason served many churches throughout TN, AL, MS, AR, and TX. In 1883, he was sent to the Seymour, TX area as a missionary to the Indians there.

      Went to Africa as a missionary shortly after marriage.Had 5 children who lived.Served in Civil War, was at Shiloh, Chaplin in the Confederacy

      N4, h2

      J.H. Cason is not found among the list of pastors of First Baptist Church in Columbus, Miss. His last child was born in Columbus, Miss,in 1874, so I presume he was either serving a church or teaching school there. Prior children were born in Carrolton, Alabama so I will look for a church there as well.

      This family is found in Columbus, Mississippi in the 1870 census.Census indexes list JH Cason as TM Cason. I am unable to find them inthe 1860 Census so far. In 1880, the family is back in Wilson Co.,TN. In 1900, JH Cason is found in the index as Jeremiha Cason, age 77, in the 9th Ward, Dallas, Texas. This would be ED 73, p. 125B. Unfortunately, this image is missing from Ancestry.Com.

      In 1866-1868, there are several references to J.H. Cason as an attorney in the West Alabamian newspaper. There are also later references in that general area to a J.H. Cason. But, I do not believe this is the same J.H. Cason. Interestingly, he is in Carrollton, Pickens County as a pastor at the same time as this other Cason is an attorney. I suspect the are both related back in Wilson County.
