Bogart, David Schuyler
Bogart, David Schuyler, a minister of the Reformed (Dutch) Church, was born in New York city in 1770. He graduated at Columbia College in 1790, studied theology under Dr. J. H. Livingston, and was licensed by the Synod in 1792. He was missionary "along the Hudson and to the North as far as St. Croix" in 1792, and was assistant at Albany from 1792 to 1796. He then served the Presbyterian Church at Southampton, L. I., from 1796 to 1806. His next charge in the Reformed Church was at Bloomingdale during 1806 and 1807, when he returned to Southampton and remained there until 1813. In that year he again left Southampton and was pastor in the Reformed Church at Success and Oyster Bay until 1826. He died in 1839. As a student he was zealous and indefatigable. In many departments of science and literature he extended his researches, and in all he sought truth rather than mere knowledge. See Corwin, Manual of the Ref, Church in America (3d ed.), p. 189.
