Bellamy, David a Baptist minister, was born in 1805. He became pastor of a Church in Skeneateles, N.Y., in 1833, and subsequently of a Church in Manlius. Ill-health compelled him to retire from the pastorate in 1839. He entered the service of the American and Foreign Bible Society, and the more active life he led while travelling for the society so far restored him that he again resumed his ministerial work, and became pastor of the Church in Ithaca, N. Y., and subsequently of the Stanton-street Church in New York city, with which he remained until 1846. He then united with others in the formation of what is now the Calvary Church in New York, and became its pastor, sustaining that relation for about three years. Afterwards he was pastor successively of churches in Arcadia, Mt. Morris, and Rome, where he died, Oct. 1, 1864. See Appletons' Annual Cyclop. v, 618.
