a venerable Presbyterian minister, was born near Princeton, N.J., January 4, 1800. He joined the Church there in 1817, graduated from the College of New Jersey in 1818, and from the Theological Seminary at the same place in 1822. After serving as an evangelist in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky, he was ordained pastor of the First Presbyterian Church at Steulbenville, Ohio, in 1823. In 1829 he founded a female seminary in that town, to which he devoted his chief attention thereafter until 1879. In 1837 he resigned his position as pastor, but continued to act as stated supply in adjacent churches for several years thereafter. He died, at Steubenville, October 30, 1882. He possessed rare executive ability, and was enabled to amass a large fortune, of which he gave liberally to various causes of benevolence. See Necrol. Report of Princeton Theol. Sem. 1883, page 10.
