Churchman, John

Churchman, John a minister of the Society of Friends, was born at Nottingham, Cheshire County, Pennsylvania, June 4, 1705. He became an established Christian when about twenty, and was "recommended," in the winter of 1735-36, as a preacher. For the next two or three years he exercised his ministry in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, Virginia, and New England. From 1750 to 1754 he was engaged in ministerial work in Great Britain, Ireland, and Holland. In the French and Indian war he often raised his voice in favor of a peaceful and conciliatory attitude towards the natives. His death took place July 24, 1775. He left a very full journal of his labors during all these years of his ministry. See Friend's Library, 5:176-265. (J.C.S.)
