Bickford, Edwards Gibbs

Bickford, Edwards Gibbs a Congregational minister, was born at Meridian, N. Y., July 27, 1844. He graduated from Genesee College in 1867, and after studying two years at Auburn he entered the Union Theological Seminary, where he graduated in 1870. After three years of patient work at Chaumont, N. Y., he yielded to a long-cherished desire of being a missionary, and offered his services to the American Board in the Turkish field. With his wife and two children he arrived at Marash in October, 1874. He had been but three years in the field, showing rich promise of future usefulness, when he was attacked with malignant small-pox, which ended his life at Marash, Oct. 17, 1877. See Gen. Cat. Union Theol. Sem. (1876), p. 132. (W. P.S.)
