Cuthbertson, John an Associate Reformed minister, was born in Scotland in 1720. He studied for the ministry under the Reverend John McMillan, the father and founder of the Reformed Presbytery of Scotland; emigrated to America in 1752, and for more than twenty years was the only Reformed Presbyterian minister in this country, having charge of the small Reformed Presbyterian societies scattered over the thirteen colonies. He entered cordially into the union in 1782, and, after this, his field of labor was restricted to his own immediate charge, Octorara, Pennsylvania, where he died, March 10, 1791.
