Cleaver, Charles, a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Brackley, England, June 11, 1815. His parents, who were members of the Church of England, strongly opposed his union with the Wesleyan Church, but although only fifteen when converted, he was true to his convictions, and his endurance of rebuke and suffering were rewarded by seeing both his parents unite with the communion which they once despised. At nineteen he entered the local ministry of that church, and remained in it until he came to the United States in 1844. On arriving at Baltimore he continued as a local preacher until 1853, when he joined the Baltimore Conference, in which he labored until 1876, and was then made supernumerary, which relation. was changed to superannuate in 1878, and so continued till his death at Hereford. Md., Nov. 25., 1880. Mr. Cleaver was a faithful, earnest, and efficient preacher, very successful in revival and pastoral work. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1880, p. 71.
