Boedromia in Greek worship, was a festival celebrated yearly in memory of the assistance which Ion, or, according to others, his father Apollo, gave to the Athenians against Eleusis. It fell in the month Boedromion, which began in the middle of August. Boehm, Henry, a noted Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Lancaster County, Pa., June 8, 1775. In 1798 he united with the Church, in 1800 received license to preach, and entered the Philadelphia Conference. After the General Conference of 1808, for five years he was bishop Asbury's travelling companion and assistant. He next served as presiding elder on Schuylkill, Chesapeake, and Delaware districts, and then again entered upon the pastorate, wherein he labored faithfully until his superannuation on account of the infirmities of age. On the division of the Philadelphia Conference he became a member of the New Jersey portion, and on its division identified himself with the Newark portion. On June 8, 1875, by direction of the Annual Conference, his centennial anniversary was celebrated in Trinity Church, Jersey City. He died Dec. 29 of that year. Mr. Boehm was remarkable for his gentleness of spirit and uniform courtesy. He had a vigorous, well-balanced mind, and showed no signs of speedy departure until his last sickness. He preached fluently both in German and English. His Autobiography was edited by Dr. J. B. Wakely (N.Y. 1875, 8vo).
