Conrood, Stephen

Conrood, Stephen a Baptist minister, was born in Shelby County, Kentucky, February 4, 1798. He united with the Church in 1812, was licensed to preach in 1828, and ordained a few years later. In 1829 he settled in Greene County, Illinois, and for forty years was pastor of a single church at Bethlehem, near Greenfield. During this time he baptized a large number of converts. Although he was very conservative in his ideas, and did not favor some of the movements of the modern Church, he was nevertheless an earnest man of God, and a successful preacher. He died in 1873.
