Browning, Jacob

Browning, Jacob a Baptist minister, was born in North Carolina, February 11, 1779, and at an early age removed to Tennessee. He was trained as a Presbyterian, but subsequently became a Baptist. From 1805 to 1824 he was "living epistle" in the association with which his Church was connected. In the latter year he emigrated to West Tennessee, taking up his residence in Benton County. At this time he commenced his labors of love in the wilds of the West, and planted many flourishing churches. From the Philadelphia Association he received a commission to act as their missionary through the region in which he lived. One of the churches which came under his special pastoral care was the Parish Church in Henry County, his last sermon being preached there. He died August 12. 1841. See Borum, Sketches of Tennessee Ministers, pages 78, 79. (J.C.S.)
