Halsey, Abram Oothout, Dd
Halsey, Abram Oothout, D.D., a Reformed (Dutch) minister, was born in New York, November 3, 1798. He graduated from Union College in 1822, and from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1827; became pastor at North and South Hampton in 1829, a position which he retained until a few months before his death at Sweedsborough, N.J., August 23, 1867. He was a man of childlike, catholic spirit, and possessed a peculiar unction in prayer. He was eminent as a preacher. His theology was that of moderate Calvinism, and he held it with genuine charity towards all who differed from him. He was also a decided premillenarian, and was thoroughly versed in the literature of that question. See Corwin, Manual of the Ref. Church in America, s.v. (W.J.R.T.) .
