Burr, Bradley L
Burr, Bradley L.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at. Liberty, N. Y., Dec. 30,1817. He was considered an upright, moral youth in early life; experienced conversion in 1839; immediately began exercising his gifts in prayer and exhortation; but meeting discouragements, his zeal abated and he became a backslider. In 1840 he was reclaimed, and licensed to exhort. In 1847 he received license to preach, and in 1851 entered the New York Conference, and in it labored until his last sickness, which soon terminated in his death, Nov. 16,1858. Mr. Burr possessed a limited education, but a naturally good mind; was indefatigable in labor, emphatically a revivalist, and a great builder-up of the Church. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1859, p. 151.
