Dr. McCarty was the author of many articles, usually on church affairs, and at least one book, "Doctrine of the Times."
The following is a reprint of an article concerning the Rev. McCarty which appeared in the Alabama Christian Advocate, August 27, 1887.
"Rev. W. A. McCarty, D.D., Alabama Conference was born in the State of Tennessee. While he was yet an infant his father moved to South Carolina, where he was raised. At the age of twenty he moved to Alabama, where he has remained. He was converted when he was a little boy. He had doubts about his conversion for two or three years, but these doubts were finally dissipated.
He had impressions that he would have to preach, as early, if not earlier, than his conversion. He preached, not as play, but in all seriousness and earnestness, to a company of boys, and one about his own age professed religion, and held to his profession in all after life.
He joined the Alabama Conference in 1854, with Rush, Motley, Hearn, Solomon and others, some of whom are yet effective, but others have gone to their reward.
He has been ten years on districts, the rest of the time on circuits and stations, and is now on the hardest of all appointments-supernumerary. He has been solicited to take charge of several church schools, but while appreciating such work very highly, he has thought that his special calling was to preach the gospel.
He has been elected to every General Conference since he was eligible, until the last. He was a member of the "Committee on Changes of Economy" at New Orleans in 1866, and favored all the changes except striking out the probationary clause. He opposed this for the very reason that others favored it, to wit: that many were lost to full membership. He thought it would be wholesome for the church to lose any one who did not think enough of his membership to claim it after six month's trial.
He has written, some have thought, not enough, for our periodical literature. Bishop Parker, when editor of the New Orleans Advocate, used to say that his style of writing was the best of any one's in the Church, South. He has on hand a manuscript denominated "The Truth and Glory of Christianity," which may or may not be published. Dr. McCarty is a modest, quiet, Christian gentleman, and we confess that we were agreeably surprised when he consented to let us write up his obituary before his demise. He had rendered long and efficient service in the church, and is considered today one of the wisest and safest counselors in his conference. He is cool, deliberate and prayerful on all questions involving the welfare of the church, or the good of a brother. When things get tangled, the doctor can find the way out; if by no other route, by telling a good anecdote that has in it a great moral truth. He is now superannuated in body, but his mind glows with its usual vigor, and his heart with its old-time warmth." The following obituary appeared in the April 28, 1904 edition of the Alabama Christian Advocate.
"Rev. William Allen McCarty, D.D., was born in Tennessee, March 23, 1819, and died in Anniston, Alabama, April 19, 1904. When a mere infant he removed with his parents to South Carolina. He attended Cokesbury College while Dr. A. H. Mitchell was President of the institution. He moved to Alabama in 1838 and was licensed to preach in Eufaula in 1839. His health failing in 1840, he studied law and practiced in the courts for several years. He ceased to practice because he felt that 'in his case' he could not be religious and not preach the gospel. He joined the Conference at Talladega in 1854. Among those who entered the Conference with him may be mentioned Rev J. W. Rush, D.D., Rev. W. C. Hearn, D.D., and Rev. F. T. J. Brandon. . . . . . Dr. McCarty was for fifty years a prominent figure in Alabama Methodism. He was elected to every General Conference after he became eligible till his health failed. He filled many positions of trust and honor. He was known as a clear, logical preacher and a strong theologian. At the ripe age of 85 he fell on sleep. He was laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery in the city of Anniston, there to await the resurrection of the just. Dr. W. C. Hearn, Rev. F.T.J. Brandon, Rev. T. K. Roberts, and Rev. George L. Jenkins conducted the funeral services. Of him it may be truly said, he served his day and generation and now he rests from his loved employ. 'Servant of God, well done!'" Children of Dr. W. A.
