a Protestant Episcopal clergyman, was born at Guilford, Conn., June 26, 1804. He graduated from Middlebury College in 1824; studied theology at Andover, Mass., and at Princeton, N. J., completing his studies at Alexandria, Va.; was ordained deacon in 1829, and presbyter in 1837. Physical infirmity prevented him fulfilling his purpose of going as a missionary to the Africans; but he went to Washington, D. C., where he formed an African educational society. So much opposition was developed against the project that he finally abandoned it, and became rector of Trinity Church, Shelburne Vt., in 1840, remaining there until 1818. Afterwards he was rector of St. John's Church, Ashfield, Mass., whence he was called to Trinity Church, East New York, L.I. he died there, Dec. 19, 1865. See Amer. Quar. Church Rev. Oct. 1866, p. 485.
