Boggs, William a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Belmont County, O., May 17, 1811. He was converted when about twenty-one, was educated at Norwalk Seminary, and in 1841 entered the North Ohio Conference. In 1864 his health gave way, and compelled him to become a superannuate, which relation he held until his death, June 7, 1869. Mr. Boggs was upright, straightforward, and guileless, as a man; plain, logical, and scriptural, as a preacher. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1869, p. 284.
