Booth, James a Wesleyan, minister in Canada, was a native of Yorkshire, England. He came to America in 1816, and was one of the most self-sacrificing laborers in the upper provinces. He became a supernumerary at Waterloo, Ont., in 1838, but resumed work again in three years. He died at Kingston, Ont., Jan. 22, 1854, in his seventy-third year.
