lives well lived

Bro. Jim E. Tillman Sr. passed away Saturday. He and his wife, Margaret, had made their home in North Little Rock for a number of years. Former residents of Walnut Ridge and College City, they continued to keep close ties with friends here through the years.

During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Bro. Tillman was a larger than life figure in Walnut Ridge, where he served as pastor of First Baptist Church. Bro. Tillman had a strong, yet pleasing voice, as well as charisma in person and in the pulpit that I would compare to Rev. Billy Graham.

Pictures of the Past

This is the home of Harry and Ida Boas, circa 1907, on North Texas Street in Hoxie. Harry was the son of Henry and Mary Boas, founders of Hoxie. Harry and Ida had two sons, Harry Jr. and Jack. Jack married Ruby Land and this was their home for many years. When the turret was demolished by a tornado, it was remodeled and a carport added. Otherwise, this house has not changed in the last one hundred years.
