Buck, Benjamin

Buck, Benjamin, a Baptist minister, was born in Maine in 1768. His early associations were with the Congregationalists, but he united with the Baptists in 1800. He was ordained in 1817, at which time he became pastor of the churches at Orland and Bucksport. The following year he removed to Eastport, where he remained about one year, and then became pastor of the Church at Machias Port, where he continued from 1819 to 1825. He was called to Sullivan in 1826, where he remained about three years. After brief settlements in two or three places, he took charge of the Church at Harrington in 1833, remaining there till 1840. He retired in 1843 from the active duties of the ministry, and died December 10, 1844. Mr. Buck was a good representative of a class of Baptist ministers in Maine who, without much scholarly education, did much in laving the foundations of what have since become. strong and efficient churches.
