Bagley, Francis Herbert

Bagley, Francis Herbert a Presbyterian minister, was born in Boston, Jan. 16, 1840. His studies were interrupted in 1862 by his enlistment in the Forty-fifth Regiment of Massachusetts volunteers. He remained in the service until the close of the war, attaining the rank of captain. After this he renewed his studies and graduated at Hamilton College in 1870. He immediately entered Union Theological Seminary, and graduated in the class of 1873. He was ordained as an evangelist by the Buffalo Presbytery, May 20, 1873, and was soon after installed pastor of the Reformed Church at Greenburgh. His career was brief. He had unconsciously undermined his health, and he was stricken down by apoplexy. Although his life was spared for a while, yet his constitution was broken, and he never preached again. Three years later, just as he began to speak hopefully of resuming his work, the second shock came suddenly, and he died at Staten Island, N. Y., July 15,1878. (W. P. S.)
