Blanchard, Amos a Congregational minister, was born at Peacham, Vt., Sept. 8, 1800. He began his academical studies at the age of twenty-one years, and graduated from the Andover Theological Seminary in 1828, in which year he was licensed to preach. The first year after graduation he spent in Western New York, in the employment of the American Tract Society. Then for three years he edited the Cincinnati Christian Journal. He was ordained to the ministry July 27, 1831, by the Presbytery of Cincinnati. In the following year he returned to New England, and was installed Dec. 9 as pastor of the Congregational Church in Lyndon, Vt., remaining until the winter of 1835. After spending a year and a half as acting pastor at Cabotsville, Mass., he was installed in Warner, N. H., in 1837. Meriden, Conn., was his next field of labor, where he was installed in 1840; from this charge he was dismissed more than twenty-five years afterward, removing to Barnet, Vt., where he died, Jan. 6, 1869. Among his literary remains are five published discourses. See Cong. Quarterly, 1869, p. 299.
