a Baptist minister as born in Orange County, Va. about the middle of the last century. He became a hopeful Christian under the preaching of the celebrated John Leland, by whom he was baptized, not far from the year 1788. Soon after he was ordained and, after being publicly set apart to the work of the ministry, he removed to Fauquier County, where he preached much as an itinerant minister. Subsequentlv he had the pastoral charge of the Church at Hartwood, Stafford Co. and the Church at Brentsville, Prince. William Co. He died about the year 1809, universally lamented in the large section of country of which he was for many years the only minister of his denomination. See Lives of Virginian Baptist Ministers 192-194. (J.C. S).
