Andrews, Elisha

Andrews, Elisha a Baptist minister, was born at Middletown, Conn., Sept. 29, 1768. He was converted at an early age, and soon resolved to become a Baptist minister. His opportunities of education were limited, but he made the most of them, and was occupied as a teacher and surveyor, with occasional attempts at preaching, until he was ordained as pastor in Fairfax, Vt., in 1793. He labored successively in Hopkinton, N. H.; Nottingham West (now Hudson), in the same state; Templeton, Mass., in which region he is still remembered as the "apostle of the Baptists;" Hinsdale, N. H.; the region west of Lake Champlain; Princeton; Leominster; South Gardiner and Royalston. Amid all his labors, his desire for study was irrepressible, and he mastered Greek, Hebrew, and German. In January, 1833, he had an attack of paralysis, and a second in 1834, which disabled him almost wholly. He died Feb. 3, 1840. Mr. Andrews published several essays, tracts, and sermons; also The Moral Tendencies of Universalism (18mo); Review of Winchester on universal Restoration; Vindication of the Baptists (12mo). — Sprague, Annals, 6, 268.
