David Jones Fant ("Uncle D.J.) He lived in Atlanta, drove a train up and down the Southern Railway and preached from the caboose at the whistle stops. He was known as the "Railroad Evangelist." He lived to be 96 and received an honorary doctorate from the Taccoa Falls Bible Institute, but he considered the cap and gown that came with it to be "worldly trappings." He belonged to a denomination called the Christian Missionary Alliance.
