Brenner, Frederick W
Brenner, Frederick W.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Prussia in 1818. He was converted in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, received license to preach, and for several years travelled under the direction of a presiding elder in the Philadelphia Conference. In 1847 he was engaged as missionary in the West Baltimore German Mission; in 1849 was sent to the Williamsburgh German Mission, L.I.; in 1851 to Callicoon Mission; and in 1852 returned to the New York Conference with broken health. With great reluctance he took a supernumerary relation, and located in West Baltimore, where he served as best he could in the German work until his death, in September, 1852. Mr. Brenner was an excellent, energetic, enthusiastic man. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1853, page 194.
