Blair, S

Blair, S.

a Baptist minister, was born in Indiana in 1827. He removed to Illinois in early life, was converted at sixteen, and a few years afterwards entered the ministry. In 1856 he went to Olney, where he found three Baptists. With untiring zeal and labor he built up a Church of 120 members. He continued to serve this Church until November, 1861, when he became chaplain of the Sixty-third (Ill.) Regiment, where he made himself most useful. At least two revivals were enjoyed in the army during his labors. He was so severely injured by a railroad accident near Memphis that he died, Jan. 19, 1863. See Minutes of Illinois Anniversaries, 1863, p. 9, 10. (J. C. S.)
