Guion, Thomas T., D.D.
a Protestant Episcopal clergyman, was born at Bedford, N.Y., August 31, 1817. He graduated at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, in 1840. His first cure was the missionary station at Zoar. He then took charge of the parishes of St. Thomas, in Bethel, and St. James, in Danbury, which, at the end of three years, had become self-supporting, and he assumed the rectorship of them both. In 1848 he had charge of St. Mary's parish, Brooklyn, N.Y.; afterwards was rector of St. James's, Birmingham, Connecticut, for more than four years. In 1853 he accepted the pastorate of St. John's parish, Brooklyn, N.Y., where he was very successful, but his health failed; He died at Milford, Connecticut, October 21, 1862. Dr. Guion was clear in his conceptions, honest in his convictions, and fearless in their avowal. See Amer. Quar. Church Rev. April 1863, page 150.
