Cadwell, John a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Westfield, Mass., Aug. 11, 1805. He was converted in his twenty-fourth year; immediately began earnest and successful work for Christ, in holding cottage meetings, and after laboring zealously some years as class-leader and local preacher, he entered the New England Conference in 1836. He continued his earnest work to the day of his sudden death, Jan. 8, 1876. Mr. Cadwell was not especially brilliant, nor did he possess marked ability, but he was a good man, fresh and vigorous. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1876, p. 69.
