Cowell, Db

Cowell, D.B.

a Free-will Baptist minister, was born at West Lebanon, Maine, December 20, 1806. He received his early education in the academy at Limerick, and at Wolfsborough, N.H.; spent his early manhood in teaching and in mercantile pursuits, several years being passed in Great Falls, where his trade became extensive. At this period of his life he was a Universalist, and subsequently an avowed infidel. In 1833 he was converted, and soon after became a class-leader in the Church at Great Falls. In 1837 he was ordained, and for seven years travelled almost constantly as an itinerant. In 1848 he gave the start to a movement which resulted in the establishment of the West Lebanon Academy. His last fields of labor were with the Walnut Grove Church, N.H., more than a year, and with the churches in Gorham and Standish, Me. Feeble health prevented his preaching much for some time before his death, which occurred April 16, 1884. See The Morning Star, June 4, 1884. (J.C.S.)
