King, James S
King, James S.
a Presbyterian minister, was born at Albany, N. Y., Aug. 20,1832. He graduated from the College of New Jersey, Princeton, N. J., and studied theology in the Princeton Seminary. He was licensed by the New York Presbytery, and in 1858 ordained and installed pastor of the Rockland Lake Church, New York, where he was quite successful and greatly beloved by his people. Failing health, however, compelled him to withdraw from the active duties of the pastorate. During the period of his necessitated rest he did some effective work. He died at Woodlawn, near Sing Sing, New York, Sept. 15,1864. Mr. King was an estimable minister, of good talents, and thoroughly consecrated to his work. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1866, p. 126; Appleton, Annual Cyclopcedia, 1865, p. 468.
