Notes for Richard Hugg King:
Richard Hugg King, first son of Sarah Hall King and James King, and grandson of James Hall, was born in Iredell County, North Carolina, in the family home on Snow Creek, July 22nd, 1767. In a sketch of his life contained in Bethany Centennial Addresses it is stated:"He received his preparatory education at the Clio School, near his father's, and was graduated at Princeton College, New Jersey, in the year 1786. After leaving college he studied law; became a politician, engaging in the political debates of the day. He was a member of Bethany Church. Yet at a revival meeting in 1801-2 he professed to have experienced a change of heart for the first time. He attended the Randolph meeting in 1802, became much excited, and only returned home with his friends after much solicitation. He preached the next Sabbath and for some time afterwards in that vicinity. He continued to preach near his father's residence to large audiences. The place of assembling was a hillside, and a projecting rock served for a pulpit. In company with a friend he went on a tour of two weeks into the forks of the Yadkin. He says of this tour, 'I went with no license from man, without a D. D., or the title of Reverend, but to preach as Richard Hugg King, Esq.' While at college he had assumed the name of 'Hugg' from a fellow student, who, in like manner, had taken the name of 'King About the year 1804-5 he was licensed to preach by Bishop Asbury, of the Methodist Episcopal Church.. In 1808 a time was appointed for his ordination to the full work of the ministry in that Church. The failure of the Bishop to meet the appointment lost to that denomination his future service- Always Calvinistic in sentiment, in 1810 he joined the Presbytery of Concord. He refused a call to the churches of Concord and Bethany, because the call was not unanimous. September 13th, 1816, he was ordained an evangelist. Soon after this event he removed to East Tennessee, where he became first stated supply, subsequently, the pastor of Ebenezer and Pleasant Forest Churches, which he served many years. Resigning his charge, he removed to Maryville, Tennessee, and lived with his son-in-law, D. D. Foute, until his death in 1825. His wife survived him until 1834. They were both buried at Maryville. He was a man of great mental power, and no little eloquence of speech."
He was so large, for he weighed about 400 pounds, that he preached sitting. When he left for Tennessee he preached a farewell sermon from the piazza of his father's home.
He married Mary Ross, from near Camden, South Carolina, on April 8th, 1785.
