Berry, John Amd
Berry, John A.M.D.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, joined the Church in 1842; entered the North Ohio Conference in 1854, and labored with great ability and success until 1859, when he was appointed agent of the Ohio Wesleyan Female College. A severe, spinal affection soon compelled him to resign the agency. He afterwards preached for a year and a half at Mount Gilead Station. The remaining four years of his life were spent in retirement and great suffering. He died in December, 1863. Mr. Berry was emphatically a practical man, hence his success. Brief as was his career, yet hundreds were converted through his instrumentality. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1864, p. 131.
