Gunn, William

Gunn, William, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in Caswell Co., N.C., March 13, 1797, and died at Lexington, Ky., Sept. 3, 1853. He removed in early life to Tennessee with his father; became, while a mere youth, an active member of the Church; was licensed to preach before 21 years of age, and joined the itinerancy in 1819. He spent his subsequent life in ministerial labors, mainly in the state of Kentucky, filling with great acceptability and usefulness the positions of circuit and station preacher and presiding elder, and died in the full assurance of the faith he preached to others and so beautifully exemplified in his life. He published, in connection with another minister, The Christian Psalmist (Louisville, Kentucky), and also another work, chiefly selections of the: preceding, and entitled The Christian Methodist. — Sprague, Annals of the Amer.
