Bellah, Morgan a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, was born in Oglethorpe County, Ga., Nov. 24, 1799. His vigorous mind never had the discipline of a thorough education, but by diligent study he became a useful preacher. He joined the North Georgia Conference in 1833 and labored faithfully within its bounds until 1869, when he was superannuated. He died in Barnesville, Ga., March 26, 1880. He was a practical, earnest preacher, a safe expositor, and a spiritual exhorter. His manner was dignified and serious, his spirit humble and meek, his life true, loving, and pure.
