Conner, Champ C., D.D.
a Baptist minister, was born in Culpepper County, Virginia, March 13, 1811. He united with the Church September 14, 1828, and soon after began to preach; moved to West Tennessee in 1835, and was one of the pioneer Baptist preachers in that section of the state. For a term of years he was president of the Baptist Female College at Hernando, Miss. He died at Indian Mound, Lauderdale County, Tennessee, February 14, 1875, being at the time pastor of four churches. He was a strict Baptist in faith and practice, yet, while he was bold and fearless in the advocacy of the doctrines he held, he was always courteous and respectful to those who differed from him.
