SEALE, RICHARD (ca. 1797-1875). Richard (Uncle Dick) Seale, founder of the oldest church for blacks in Texas, was born a slave around 1797 in Alexandria, Virginia. The date of his birth is uncertain, but he treasured a silver coin given to him, according to his mother, by Gen. George Washington when the child's crying during a parade attracted Washington's attention. Seale acquired some education and became overseer for his master, Joshua Seale, whose plantation was west of Jasper in the Indian Creek community near Bevilport, Jasper County, Texas. Richard Seale was a devout Christian, interested in the spiritual welfare of his people. About 1850, with Joshua Seale's help, he organized the Dixie Baptist Church, of which he was pastor. Part of the original church still stood in January 1967, when the structure was awarded a historic building medallion. Seale died in 1875 and was buried at Indian Creek in the Seale family cemetery.
