Kittle, Andrew N

Kittle, Andrew N., a minister of the Reformed (Dutch) Church, was born at Kinderhook, N.Y., in 1785, graduated at Union College in 1804, studied theology under Drs. Froeligh and Livingston, and entered the ministry in 1806. Until 1846 he was successively pastor of the churches of Red Hook Landing and St. John's, Linlithgo, Upper Red Hook, and Stuyvesant. Early consecrated to the Lord, he was an able, vigorous, and indefatigable minister of Jesus Christ. Though he was of good record as a theologian and a general scholar, possessed of strong common sense, and fond of reading, his retiring disposition kept him aloof from the agitating controversies and public excitements of the times. Aspiring only to be a preacher and pastor, he dwelt among his people until the infirmities of age constrained him to give up the active ministry. He died in 1864. Kittle was a man of fine features and noble form, a dignified Christian gentleman, and a true man of God. Corwin, Manual of Ref. Church, p. 126. (W. J. R. T.)
