Booth, John P
Booth, John P.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Brooklyn, N. Y., June 1, 1829. He entered the New York East Conference in 1855, passed all his itinerant ministry on Long Island, and died in the midst of his labors, Nov. 26, 1865. Mr. Booth was not loud and ostentatious, but remarkably firm and consistent. His ministry was short, but decisive, and crowned with great success; his chief excellence lay in his heart devotedness to the young. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1866, p. 63.
