Carl, Daniel a minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church South, was born in New York, May 6, 1808. He removed with his parents to Franklin, Tenn., in early childhood, experienced religion at the age of twelve, went to Texas in 1837 and engaged in school teaching, and in 1839 entered the Mississippi Conference. On the formation of the Texas Conference he became a member of it, and as long as health permitted labored in its active ranks with zeal and fidelity. Although his life was spent largely on the Western frontier, he maintained a genial, unsullied ministerial character. He died Aug. 16, 1865. See Minutes of Annual Conferences of the M. E. Church.
