Boyd, Jesse M
Boyd, Jesse M.
a minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church South, was born Nov. 2, 1817. He experienced religion in 1844; was licensed to exhort in 1845, to preach later in the same year, and in 1846 entered the Arkansas Conference. About six years later he removed to Texas and united with the Northwest Texas Conference, and in it did noble work until his death, Dec. 19, 1871. As men estimate ministerial talent, Mr. Boyd was only common, but he was a mighty man of God in rescuing the perishing. He was fully consecrated to his work.
