'That magnificent voice' - G.W. Perryman, Russell Co., KY

Montpelier Memories - ''His father and mother, G.W. and Emily Perryman, lived in straightened circumstances in the rearing of such a large family, on a worn out farm, but they were Godly people and reared their children in the fear of God, and they all enlisted in the cause of Christ in their youth," and that "[George] gave his heart to God in his youth at old Liberty Church, during a Baptist revival, and united with the church there, which he revered the remainder of his days, and always enjoyed the time of his return to the old church and neighborhood.' - ELDER Z.T. WILLIAMS

"That magnificent voice:" The life and times of Rev. G.W. Perryman, late of Russell County, Kentucky.

Part I.

"Just think of it. Old Russell County, possibly one of the poorest counties in the State, producing a man like him. This shows a man does not have to be born rich or of parentage of great note to be some body. If a man has a talent he should use it for good and be somebody." -- U.S. Haynes, in a letter about his friend, Rev. George W. Perryman, October, 1910.
