Dr. L.S. Burkhead was born in Davidson County on May 17, 1824. He received his education at Union Institute (the fore-runner of Trinity College). He would go to school a term and then teach a term until he completed his schooling. Such teaching was necessary for him to help defray his expenses. He was licensed to preach in 1849.
Dr. Burkhead held many of the leading appointments in the North Carolina Conference, both as pastor of local churches and as a presiding elder of districts. For a number of years, he was a member of the General Board of Missions. He was a delegate to the great Ecumenical Council of Methodism which met in London in 1881. Read More
