a clergyman of the Protestant Episcopal Church, was born in Brunswick, Maine, Feb. 21, 1797, and was educated at Bowdoin College, Maine, where he graduated in 1821. Joining the Protestant Episcopal Church, he studied for the ministry under bishop Griswold, and was by him ordained deacon January 1823, and priest September 1823. In 1823 he was settled at Marblehead and Marshfield, Mass.; in 1825 at Macon, Ga.; in 1827 at Savannah; in 1828 at Gardiner, Maine; in 1829 at South Leicester, Mass.; and in January 1833, he removed to New York, and took charge of the new mission church of the Epiphany. Here his humility, single hearted devotion to his one great work, and untiring industry, made his ministry remarkably effective. In 1858 he published his 25th anniversary discourse. During those 25 years he baptized 2501-253 adults and 2248 children, married 759 couples, presented 915 for confirmation, enrolled 1494 as communicants, and attended 1362 funerals. He died in Philadelphia Oct. 12, 1865. His death was the result of accident in falling upon the pavement at St. Luke's Church, where he was in attendance upon the meeting of the Board of Missions. Church Review, Jan. 1866, p. 669.
