Dickinson, Moses

Dickinson, Moses a Presbyterian minister, was born at Springfield, Massachusetts, December 12, 1695. He graduated from Yale College in 1717, and his first charge was Hopewell, N.J., where his labors were attended by extraordinary revivals, and his first appearance at the synod was in 1722. In 1727 he removed, as pastor, to Norwalk, Connecticut. On the death of his brother Jonathan, he completed the latter's second Vindication of the Sovereignty of Grace. Early in 1764 he sought an assistant in William Tennent, Jr., the son of the patriarch of Freehold, N.J., but during the closing years of his life, after Tennent's removal, he pursued his work alone. He died May 1, 1778. (W.P.S.)
