Christian Advocate, Thursday October 2, 1879
Joseph Workman was born January 9th,1791 and died Aug. 17th, 1879.
Father Workman was one of the first settlers on the Guyandotte River and
of Boone County, W.Va. Served two terms in the U.S. Army in the war of
1812. Was married to Elizabeth Elkins in 1821, and commenced
housekeeping on Pond Fork, Logan (now Boone) Co., where he died. He
raised a family of ten children, all living. Two of his sons are
Methodist preachers. His son, Rev. Andrew Workman, is known to this
country in all the churches for his fidelity to the M.E. Church, and his
unfliching loyalty to the United States Government during the late civil
war. His son. Hon. William Workman, is a pillar in our church, and
maintained his allegiance to it and the Government in the midst of great
danger and at a great personal sacrifice. Father Workman united with the
M.E. Church in the year 1804, and soon afterward made a profession of
religion. His house was among the first in the country opened to our
ministry. His wife also united with our Church at the early age of nine
years. His life was a well-written comment on the practice of our holy
religion and in the faith of its devine reality, he passed away to the
spirit land.
