Brownson, Hector

Brownson, Hector a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Vernon, Connecticut, October 7, 1791. He belonged to a typical Puritan family, whose stern moral teachings were inwrought into his nature; experienced a genuine conversion when about twenty; enlisted in his country's service in 1812; was in several engagements, out of which he came with great credit and a lieutenant's command; and began preaching in 1825 under the auspices of the New England Conference. In 1838 he entered the service of the American Bible Society, in which he continued thirty-nine years, closing his labors and life April 30, 1877. Mr. Brownson was a happy, exemplary Christian.
