Bromwell, Jacob L., a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Talbot County, Maryland, August 1, 1792. He was converted in early life; licensed to exhort in 1815; to preach in 1816; and admitted into the Baltimore Conference in 1817. In 1826 he became superannuated, but became effective in 1829, and in the following year again superannuated, which relation he held to the close of his life. In 1831 he removed to the wild, uncultivated territory of Morgan County, Indiana, where he preached as he was able in log-houses, schoolhouses, and at funerals all over the country. He died March 9, 1871. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1872, page 18.
