Anthoniez, John, a native Wesleyan missionary, was born at Galle, Ceylon, Aug. 28, 1793. He was converted about the time of the commencement of the mission in Galle. His ministry was useful and zealous. He was a man of simplicity in his manners, yet powerful in his prayers and sermons. He died at Colombo, July 24, 1845, where he had labored for several years, and his death was deeply felt both by the Church of which he was pastor and by his European brethren.
