Bennett, Moses G
Bennett, Moses G.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Monmouth County, N. J., Jan. 29, 1820. He received the best Christian culture in early life; was converted at the family altar at the age of thirteen; and soon began laboring for the salvation of his associates and acquaintances. In 1845 he moved to Ohio, whither he appears to have fled to get rid of preaching. He even declined committing himself as a professor of religion, but was soon called out of his uunfaithfulness by being asked by the pastor of the place if he ever enjoyed religion. From that time he resumed his Christian activity, and in 1847 entered the Ohio Conference, wherein he served, as health permitted, with zeal and fidelity until his death, March 8, 1857. Mr. Bennett was a man of indefatigable energy and impassioned eloquence. His social qualities were of the first order, and as a friend he was devoted. See Minutes of Annual Conrferences, 1857, p. 444.
