Carrasco, Antonio a leading Spanish Protestant preacher, was born in Malaga, January 19, 1843. He was converted in youth, and was imprisoned for Bible reading, but released in 1863 at the remonstrance of the Evangelical Alliance. After studying at Geneva, Switzerland, he returned to Spain in 1868, and zealously engaged in the publication of the true gospel there, becoming pastor of the Free Church in Madrid. On his way home from a visit to America he was drowned by the sinking of the steamer Ville du flavre, November 22, 1873. See Report of the Evangelical Alliance, 1874, page 764.
