Biography

Bro. Willie, as he was affectionately called by everyone in Simpson who didn't call him Uncle Willie, was the first pastor of Welcome Church serving until 1914. After his term in Simpson was concluded, Willie held pastorates in Sharp, Boyce, Flatwoods, Leesville, Fisher, Harrisonburg, Mayna, and LaCamp in Louisiana, and spent two and a half years as pastor in Bronson, Texas. After Izilla died, Willie married second to Selma Koehn, and there was no issue. Selma was also a Church of God minister.

Bro. Willie never retired from his duties, even as he aged he assisted in church functions, visited the sick, and was a source of inspiration to his neighbors.

Please removed the US Civil War sticker as this man was born after the war ended. Perhaps there is conflation with another William Harrison?

Thanks, Natalie, Data Doctor
