Anderson, Thomas (1)

Anderson, Thomas (1)

a Presbyterian minister, was born in Cumberland County, Pa., Jan. 1, 1791. At the age of eighteen he became a member of the Presbyterian Church, Neshannock, Mercer Co., Pa. His early life was one of great trial. He studied Latin and Greek partly at home, partly at Greersburg Academy, sometimes teaching, sometimes laboring with his hands, until he was fitted for college. He graduated at Washington College, Pa., 1820. After graduating, he removed to the town of Mercer, and took charge of the academy in that place. He taught for five years, paid off his college debts, and pursued his theological studies under the directions of Mr. Tait. He was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of Erie, Dec. 28, 1825; began his ministerial labors regularly at Concord, Venango Co., Pa., May 7, 1826; was ordained by the Presbytery of Erie Sept. 19 of the same year, and installed as pastor. At the division of the Presbytery in 1838, Mr. Anderson adhered to the New School. In 1843 he removed to Huntington, Ind., where he organized a Church in November of that year. He was released from this charge Jan. 9, 1848, and died Dec. 22, 1853. See Hist. of Presbyterianism in Erie.
