Cass, William D
Cass, William D.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Bradford, Vt., April 2, 1797. He was converted at thirteen, but grew lukewarm; was reclaimed several years later by the Free-will Baptists, and was an ordained minister in that body several years. In 1827 he united with the New Hampshire Conference, and served the Church faithfully until 1866, when he retired to farm life near Sanborton Bridge, and there remained till his death, May 7, 1867. Untiring energy, flaming zeal, and an indomitable will made Mr. Cass one of the greatest powers of his conference. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1868, p. 91.
