Resource Toolbox

a minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church South, was born on Winyaw Bay, S. C., Aug. 30, 1800. He joined the Church in 1826, received license to preach in 1840, and in 1841 entered the Memphis Conference, in which, with the exception of two years as supernumerary, he did effective work until 1867, when he became superannuated, and continued to sustain that relation to the close of his life, Dec. 22, 1869. In the Conference sessions Mr. Blackwell was considered one of the wisest of counsellors. His knowledge was extensive, and his power of analysis very great. His style of delivery was pure, elegant, dignified, didactic, enrapturing. His zeal exceeded his physical strength. See Minutes of Annual Conferences of the M. E. Church South, 1870, p. 455.
