Cheesman, Daniel

Cheesman, Daniel, a Baptist minister, was born in Boston, July 15, 1787. He was converted at an early age, and baptized Oct. 30, 1803. He graduated from Brown University in 1811. Soon after he was licensed by the Second Baptist Church in Boston, in July, 1812. He was ordained shortly afterwards, and settled in Warremn, R. I., for two years, and then at Hallowell, Me., for nine years, where the membership of the Church increased under his care from fifty to one hundred and fifty. He was next settled at Lynn, Mass., four years, baptizing, during this period, one hundred and twenty-five persons. He removed in 1834 to Barnstable, and labored most acceptably until his death, May 21, 1839. He was one of the most useful and honored ministers of his denomination in the times in which he lived. See Christian Watchman, June 14, 1839. (J. C. S.)
