MEMOIRS--GEORGIA CONFERENCE. (Southern Christian Advocate)

Rev. Windsor Graham

Rev. Windsor Graham was born in Richmond county, N. C., but was for many years a citizen of Jackson county, Ga. His early years were not blessed with religious or education advantages. About the year 1820, he was soundly converted to God, when he consecrated his soul fully to the Lord, and was, for many years, an earnest exhorter in our church. He became of member of this Conference in January, 1834, and for more than twenty years, was an effective, zealous preacher. For some eight or ten years, he has been superannuated. During these last years, he has resided in Henry co., Ga., where he died in great peace, on the 21st of January 1865.

Brother Graham, in some respects, was no ordinary man. While his educational advantages were limited, consquently limiting his preaching abilities, yet such was the holiness of the man, such his burning zeal, such his earnest, consecrated life, such the melting tenderness of his heart, that he was remarkably successful in his ministry. He carried the holy fire within him, and kindled all the churches into a blaze where he preached. If any circuit had declined in religion, he was chosen, as one of the best men of the Conference, to revive and save them. "His heart was made up of tenderness," hence he wept over his people with an earnest solicitude for their welfare, and sought to win them to Christ by love, and many are the stars that shine in the crown of his rejoicing. We hear a voice from Heaven, saying--"Write blessed are the dead which die in the Lord, from henceforth. Yes, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them."
