Barnhurst, Washington

Barnhurst, Washington a Baptist minister, was born ,at Philadelphia, Dec. 30, 1830, and united with the Broad Street Church in that city when he was sixteen years of age. His college course was pursued at Lewisburg University, where he graduated in 1851, and his theological course at the Rochester Seminary. His ordination as pastor of the Church at Chestnut Hill, Pa., took place Sept. 8, 1853, on leaving which place he went to Burlington, N. J., and in 1856 took charge of the Third Church in St. Louis, Mo. In all these pastorates he was greatly blessed with revivals of religion. The constant and exhausting labors of these years of ministerial work broke down his health, and in 1860 he left the pastorate and sought to recruit on a farm in Miller County, Mo., where he died, April 29, 1862.
