Letters and Sermons of T. B. Larimore - Volume Two
Theophilus Brown Larimore (1843-1929).
Raised in poverty and obscurity, Larimore was able to attend Mossy Crock Baptist College in Eastern Tennessee. He had a short tour in the Confederate Army. Assigned as a scout he was captured and sent to Federal headquarters. Soon after his release, he moved to Hopkinsville, Kentucky where he began to preach the Gospel.
Between preaching, teaching and working as a logger he took a course at Franklin College under Tolbert Fanning, graduating as valedictorian of his class in 1867. After his marriage to Miss Ester Gresham, they determined to establish a school for boys and girls at Mars Hill, near Florence, Alabama. There were many men who graduated as faithful Gospel preachers from the school. After seventeen busy years, the school was closed because of the increasing demand for him to do evangelistic work.
He traveled from Maine to Mexico, from the Carolinas to California, preaching twice a day and three times every Sunday. He held many gospel meetings which lasted for several weeks at a time, his longest meeting was at Sherman, Texas - beginning January 4, 1894, continuing twenty-two weeks and one day, where he preached three hundred and thirty-three sermons.
In 1911, his evangelistic work took him from British Columbia to Eastern Canada, and from Mexico to Cuba. He preached regularly until 1929 when his health prevented him from traveling. He passed from this life March 18, 1929. Though he wrote no books, yet a number of books have been written about him.
