Atwood, Anson S

Atwood, Anson S.

a Congregational minister of Connecticut, was born at Woodbury, Aug. 1, 1790, and graduated at Yale in 1814. After spending some time in home missionary labor, he accepted a call from the Church at South Mansfield, where he was ordained in 1819. This was his only pastorate one of almost forty-three years. During this period, he had seven revivals, and received into the Church four hundred and twenty-one persons. He died at East Hartford, July 22, 1866. Mr. Atwood was firm in his convictions of duty and in his opinions, a faithful preacher and laborious pastor, with a slight dash of eccentricity in his manner. See Cong. Quarterly, 1866, p. 389.
