a Baptist minister, was born in Franklin County, Ky., Feb. 3, 1803. He united with the Church in 1827, and was ordained in 1833. His only settlement was as pastor of the Lebanon and North Benson churches, but while holding this position he supplied, for longer or shorter periods, several churches in Kentucky.
