Matt was the blacksmith. He and Mary Ann were a devoted couple, and they died within two weeks of each other. They are buried in the northwest corner of the cemetery, but there were no markers. After 1907, the city refrained from burying any more people, and only three large tombstones were left for decoration. Concrete paths were made, and a beautiful fountain erected in the center of the abandoned cemetery. The other remaining graves were embedded in blocks of cement along the south side of the cemetery next to the sidewalk.

“Well Done, Thou Good and Faithful Servant”

 

REV. J. L. HUDGINS, one of the widest known ministers in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, passed to his eternal reward from his home in Nashville, Tenn., Tuesday, July 11, at 9 o’clock p.m., aged 82 years. His funeral was conducted at the Marshall Funeral Home, Nashville, Thursday morning, July 13, by Rev. C. M. Zwingle, assisted by Revs. W. H. McLeskey and Geo. W. Sparks. Cumberland Presbyterian ministers from Nashville and other places were the honorary pallbearers. His body was carried to Union City, Tenn., for interment, where a service was held at the grave by Revs. W. B. Cunningham and B. J. Reagin. Accompanying the remains from Nashville were Revs. George W. Sparks, J. W. Stiles, S. O. McAdoo, and Elder C. C. Brock.

 

Rev. J. L. Hudgins was born near Eldorado, Ill., where he taught school previous to giving his entire time to the gospel ministry of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. His first pastorate was at Mt. Oval, in Ewing-McLin Presbytery, near Norris City, Ill. At one time he was the pastor of the Cumberland Church where Senator Borah at that time held his membership; and was also the pastor of the church where William Jennings Bryan was converted and with which church he united. Brother Hudgins was the pastor at Washington, Ind., Eldorado, Ill., Union City, Tenn., and other places. I remember hearing him tell about conducting a revival for a preacher in another denomination, when the pastor of the church was converted.

 

In 1910 Brother Hudgins was elected editor of The Cumberland Presbyterian, resigning the pastorate of the Union City Church to wield a powerful editorial pen. He held the editorship for sixteen years, and a part of that time he was also general manager of the publishing house. When the Cumberland Presbyterian Church lost its large publishing building and printing plant in the exodus from the church, Brother Hudgins printed a few issues of the church paper on a mimeograph. Through that medium he appealed to loyal Cumberlands for funds to purchase type and presses to continue the publication of the church paper, and his appeal netted $15,000.00. From that modest start, he added an up-to-date printing plant, and purchased the office building and erected the building we now use as a printing plant. The Cumberland Presbyterian Publishing House is a monument to his loyalty, genius, sacrifice, and faith in the Cumberland Church. Various offers were made to induce him to go with those who went into another denomination, but he declared that as long as J. L. Hudgins lived there would be one Cumberland Presbyterian.

 

When he retired as editor he was employed by the Woman’s Board in raising the Ashburn-Graf Endowment Fund. After that, the General Assembly appointed him manager of the ministerial Endowment Fund, which position he held to the day of his death. He was known as “the best money raiser in the church,” adding, through his solicitation, something like $500,000.00 to the various enterprises of the church.

 

Brother Hudgins was one of the most forceful ministers of the church, a great orator and pleasing speaker who attracted crowds and held the interest of hearers.

 

When Brother Hudgins retired as editor, his interest in the work of publication did not cease, and he remained an active counsellor and personal friend of those in charge of the publishing house. When the present editor was elected, Brother Hudgins was the first person to write his congratulations, and to say, “If there is anything I can do to assist you in any part of the work, command my services.” As long as he was able, he visited regularly the office, and was always gratified over any success that had come to the publication interests.

 

Besides his wife, he is survived by two sons and one daughter: Paul Hudgins, Eldorado, Ill.; W. E. Hudgins, Union City, Tenn., Mrs. J. W. Riggins, Nashville, Tenn.

 

Well done, thou good and faithful servant, while thou art dead, yet dost thou speak, and will continue to speak and be loved in the memory of thousands of Cumberland Presbyterians.

 

“Sleep on, beloved, sleep, and take thy rest;

Lay down thy head upon the Savior’s breast.

We love thee well, but Jesus loves thee best.”
