Gunn, Walter, was born in Carlisle, Schoharie Co., N. Y., June 27,1815. He was graduated at Union College in 1840, and studied theology in the seminary at Gettysburg. He was licensed by the Hartwich Synod in 1842, and the following year was ordained as a missionary to foreign lands. He soon sailed for India, where he labored in faith, and with perseverance and success, among the Tulugoos until his death, which occurred at Guntoon July 8, 1857. Mr. Gunn was the first missionary from the Lutheran Church in the United States who fell in the foreign field. He exerted an influence in India which still lives. He was a man of faith and love, a missionary in the highest sense, of whom the "world was not worthy."
