Buzzell, William

Buzzell, William a Free-will Baptist minister, was born in Middleton, N. H., in 1775. He made a public profession of his faith Oct. 17, 1798, and very soon began to speak as a teacher of religion, but was not regularly set apart to the work of the ministry until the autumn of 1804. He exercised his ministry in his native town, laboring especially in revivals there in 1807, 1808, 1812, and 1815. The Church was unable to do much for his temporal support, and he was therefore obliged to resort to secular pursuits. The section of country in which he lived was largely dependent on him for ministerial services, and the constant calls he received took him so much from his daily work that he was often brought into great straits. Besides preaching in his native town, he also supplied pulpits in Wolf borough, New Durham, Acton, Me., and some other places. He labored on amid many discouragements until the fall of 1841. A lingering sickness terminated his life, June 14,1844. See Morning Star, xix, 42. (J. C. S.)
