Ellingwood, John Wallace, D.D.
a Congregational minister, was born at Beverly, Massachusetts, May 2, 1782. For several years he pursued the business of a silversmith, relinquishing that occupation in 1810 to enter the Andover Theological Seminary. In 1812 he was ordained over the Church in Bath, Maine, where he labored with great fidelity and success until 1843, when ill-health compelled him to resign his charge. He died at Bath, August 19, 1860. Dr. Ellingwood was a man of great wisdom and prudence, firmness and independence of opinion, benevolence and self-control; he took a deep interest in the great religious and moral enterprises of his day, and held responsible positions on the Boards of his Church. Eight revivals of religion resulted from his labors. Three of his sermons were published in 1851. See Cong. Quarterly, 1860, page 420.
