Chickering, Lucius

Chickering, Lucius a Baptist minister, was born at Lunenberg, Vermont, October 16, 1815. He pursued his preparatory studies at Brandon, and graduated at Waterville College, in 1842. He taught a school in Bethlehem, N.H., for six months afterwards; and began to preach at Mereditrin 1843, supplying the pulpit of the Baptist Church there for two years, and for one year that in Haverhill. In 1846 he was ordained over the Church in Thetiord, Vermont, and in 1851 went to Weston, where he was pastor three years, but returned to his native place, Lunenberg, for five years (1854-59), cultivating a farm for the support of his family, and preaching the Gospel to the destitute churches in his neighborhood. For one year he labored with great zeal as a colporteur in the employ of the American Tract Society, N.Y., in northern Vermont. In October 1870, he returned to his former church in Weston, with which he labored until he was laid aide by his last sickness. He died there, September 18, 1872.
