Since my arrival in Mansfield on Jan. 1, 1948 it has been my pleasure to meet many interesting people, and good people, who need to be remembered. The history of our parish and town has been made by many of these people and their relatives and acquaintances. The person in this article is Hall Peyton – a person I admired and respected.

He was born in Keatchie in the 1800’s and as a young man came here to work in the First National Bank. In one of our early religious revivals here he felt the call to the Baptist Ministry. He served for many years and after retiring from the Pastor ship at Lake Arthur Baptist Church in southwest Louisiana he and Mrs. Peyton returned to Mansfield in the early 1960’s. His wife soon thereafter died and several years later he married Mrs. Lightfoot who was a wonderful Christian lady.
