Dinwiddie, James Lemonte, D.D.
an Associate Reformed minister, was born in Adams County, Pennsylvania, February 23, 1798. He graduated from Washington College in 1816, and took a theological course in 1817 and 1818. Being a popular preacher, he received many calls from vacant congregations; but accepted one from Mercer, Pennsylvania, and labored there fourteen years. In 1834 he took charge of a Presbyterian congregation in Philadelphia. After continuing in this connection about seven years, he returned to his mother Church, and was again received as a member of the Presbytery of Monongahela in 1841. Shortly after this he was installed pastor of the Second Associate Reformed Church of Pittsburgh. In 1842 he was elected to the professorship of Biblical literature and sacred criticism in the theological seminary of the Reformed Church at Allegheny, and died in 1849.
