A minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in Bath, N.H., June 12, 1794. Early impressed that it was his duty to preach, he hesitated for some time. At length a portion of one of his hands became maimed for life; that hand, while yet bleeding, he held towards heaven, and promised God that he would no longer resist his convictions of duty. In 1833 he joined the Genesee Conference, and continued in effective work until 1844, when, through failing health, he was obliged to desist entirely from ministerial labor. He died at the residence of his son, Hon. L.R. Sanborn, Niagara County, N.Y., April 20, 1867. He entertained a high appreciation of the varied duties of the ministry, was a firm believer in the doctrines of his Church, and an ardent admirer of her polity. See Minutes of Annual Conf. 1867, p. 244.
