This might help someone.
From the 1893 Henrietta Independent published in Henrietta, Clay County, Texas (no first name was provided):
May 19, 1893
Rev. Mr. Epps, a Baptist minister of Jack County, was buried at Post Oak last Monday. Mr. Epps was quite an old man, being 75 years, 3 months and 18 days old age. He was ordained to the ministry in Butler county, Missouri 1849 and was actively in preaching the gospel form that time until prostrated by his last illness. He lived in Texas 30 years.
