Colman, Henry a Unitarian minister, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, September 12, 1785, and graduated at Dartmouth College in 1805. He was ordained, and installed minister of the Second Congregational Church in Hingham in 1807, where he remained until 1820. From 1825 to 1831 he officiated as pastor of a new Unitarian society in Salem, and afterwards moved to Deerfield, where he devoted himself to farming. He was appointed agricultural commissioner of the state of Massachusetts, and after passing considerable time in making a tour of inspection in that state, and in preparing several reports, spent six years (1842-48) in Europe. The results of his observations during this time were published on his return. In 1849 he revisited Europe in the hope of benefiting his health, but died in London soon after his arrival, August 14, 1849. He published a great number of single Sermons.
