Colan, Wilson

Colan, Wilson a Free-will Baptist minister, was born at Newmarket, N.H., in 1775. In early life he removed to Berwick, Maine, and in 1800 removed to Waterville, where he became a Christian, and united with the Church. Subsequently he was ordained. In 1812 he removed to Fairfield, a few miles from Waterville, where he had purchased a farm. He preached on the Sabbath, and attended the meetings of his denomination, quarterly and yearly. Thus he spent fifteen years, and then devoted himself wholly to ministerial work, travelling among the poor churches, seldom receiving anything for his services, but rather contributing from his own resources to help his needy brethren. He died at Fairfield, August 1, 1846. See Free-will Baptist Register, 1848, pages 79, 80. (J.C.S.)
