Abbott, Benjamin

one of the most laborious and useful of the pioneer Methodist preachers in America, was born in Pennsylvania in 1732, and died Aug. 14,1796. He preached for twenty years with great zeal and success, chiefly in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Though an illiterate man, he was earnest, eloquent, enthusiastic, and self-sacrificing, and thousands were added to the Church through his labors. Firth, Life of B. Abbott (N.
