A. J. Tomlinson

A.J. Tomlinson and his fellow “bible missionaries” relocated to Culberson, North Carolina, a small town less accessible to the outside world and more accessible to the poor mountain whites they wanted to reach. The mission was a modest affair involving the distribution of religious literature, home visitation, and local revivals. Tomlinson sought to create an Eden in Appalachia, where mortals could unmake the fall and refashion the garden as it had been before shame entered.

Keywords:   A.J. Tomlinson, missionary, Culberson, North Carolina, Appalachia
