Shields, Hugh K

Shields, Hugh K., a Presbyterian minister, was born near Elk Ridge Church, Giles County, Tenn., Dec. 10, 1806. He was converted to God in his seventeenth year, and, feeling his call to the work of the ministry, he entered upon a course of study with that object in view. He graduated at an academy near Elk Ridge, then at Jackson College, Columbus, Tenn., studied theology privately, and was licensed by West Tennessee Presbytery in 1836, and ordained by the same in 1837. He subsequently preached at the following places: Bethberei, Hopewell, Savannah, Elk Ridge, Cornersville, Richland, Campbellsville, and Lynnville all in Tenn. His active ministry lasted twenty- seven years; two years before his death, Sept. 13, 1865, he was disabled from work by a severe accident. Mr. Shields was a zealous and faithful minister of the Gospel, exhibiting to a high degree the characteristics of one who walked with God. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1866, p. 362. (J.L.S.)
