Bettle, Samuel (2)
Bettle, Samuel (2), a minister of the Society of Friends, was converted in early life, and became one of the most eminent ministers in the denomination. His mind was remarkably well disciplined, and this, with his natural endowments, made him peculiarly well fitted for his work during a long course of years. Intrusted with considerable means, he exercised a true Christian benevolence, devoting a large portion of his wealth to that purpose. For more than half a century he filled various responsible stations in his society. He died in Philadelphia, Pa., April 12, 1861, aged eighty-six years. See Amer. Annual Monitor, 1862, p. 7.
