Forman, Aaron Parker, D.D.
a Presbyterian minister, was born November 12, 1827, in Ralls County, Mo. He was converted at the age of eleven; graduated from Centre College, Kentucky, in 1849, with the highest honors of his class, and from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1853; preached that year in Hannibal, Missouri, and in March 1854, was ordained pastor there. In 1864 he was called to St. Joseph, where he acted with great prudence, fidelity, and zeal. In 1870 broken health compelled him to resign, and travel in Minnesota and Colorado; and after serving in the Price Street Church, St. Louis, Missouri, in March 1872, he became pastor of the Church in Canton, Miss. He died at Courtland, Alabama, October 14, 1875. Dr. Forman was a man of great gentleness and amiability of character, combined with unusual firmness and sound judgment; an excellent scholar, a popular preacher, and a beloved pastor.
