Child, James L.
a Methodist Episcopal minister spent his early life as a sailor. Soon after his conversion he connected himself with the Free-will Baptists, was ordained as a minister among them, and for some time labored in that position with acceptability and success. In 1858 he joined the Methodists, and in 1859 was admitted into the Michigan Conference. After serving seven different charges his health failed and obliged him to become a superannuate. He died in Denver, Colorado, September 10, 1873. See Minutes of Annual Conferences 1874, page 107.
