Carès, John, a minister of the German Reformed Church, was born in Northumberland county, Pa., in September, 1811. He studied theology in the Theological Seminary of the German Reformed Church at York, Pa. In 1832 he was licensed and ordained, and immediately became pastor of the German Reformed church in York, Pa., which post he occupied till his death, April 5, 1843. As a preacher, he was clear, compact, earnest, and solemn. In his manner, looks, and tones there was a peculiarity which belongs but to few — a kind of holy fascination which chained the hearer, and awed his conscience. Deep impressions were made wherever he preached; and for this, more than for any talents or learning he possessed, he was widely known and gratefully remembered. He possessed also the rare talent of preaching in both German and English with a correctness that made it impossible to determine which was his native tongue.
