Grimes, La

Grimes, L.A.

a distinguished colored Baptist minister, was born a slave at the South in 1808. While acting as a coachman in Washington, D.C., he attracted the attention and secured the friendship of the late Reverend Dr. Rollin H. Neale, then a student in that city. He soon became a good scholar and a most acceptable preacher, holding for twenty-five years the pastorate of a colored Baptist Church in Boston. He died there, March 14, 1873. Mr. Grimes took a special interest in the education of colored men as ministers of the gospel, and for several years was one of the most useful trustees of the Wayland Seminary, Washington, D.C. See The Watchman, March, 1873. (J.C.S.)
