Blackman, Learner, an eminent pioneer of American Methodism, was born in New Jersey in 1781, and entered the ministry in 1800 at about 19 years of age. After a few years spent in itinerant labors in the Eastern States, he was sent in 1805 on a mission to Mississippi, then a wild country, inhabited by Indians and frontiersmen. His labors laid the foundations of Methodism through a large region of country. He was drowned in the Ohio River in 1825.- Minutes of Conferences, i, 274; Sprague, Annals, 8:324.
