Resource Toolbox

a Baptist minister, was born at Hopewell, New Jersey, July 22, 1727, and he was there ordained to the ministry in 1754. His first labors were in the Southern States, where, as an itinerant, he was inferior, it is said, "to none but Whitefield." During the Revolutionary War he was an army chaplain. In 1762, he was ordained pastor of the first Baptist church in New York, where he remained until 1788, when he removed to Kentucky, where he became pastor of the Town Fork Church, near Lexington. He died at Frankfort, August 10, 1804. His pulpit talents were of a high order.
