Boice, Ira Condict
Boice, Ira Condict, a minister of the Reformed (Dutch) Church, was born in Somerset County, N. J. In 1823 he graduated from Dickinson College, and in 1826 from New Brunswick Seminary. He was licensed by the Classis of New Brunswick in 1826. He was pastor at Salem and Union from 1826 to 1829; at Bergen Neck from 1829 to 1844; at Claverack from 1844 to 1859; and at North Hempstead from 1859 to 1870. He died in 1872. He was an honest, straightforward, earnest man, without guile or hypocrisy. His preaching was, in a sense, the reflection of his personal character. See Corwin, Manual of the Ref. Church in America, 3d ed. p. 190.
