Krebs, William a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Baltimore. Md., Sept. 2, 1819; joined the Church in 1841, and was immediately licensed to exhort; and the year following joined the Baltimore Conference as pastor of Wesley Chapel, Baltimore. He died Sept. 26, 1870. " Brother Krebs was a perspicuous preacher, logical in method, earnest in manner, although not vehement, and eminently diligent in preparation. He was also a notably faithful pastor. Five years of his ministry were spent in Washington, five in Baltimore, and one in Chicago, and everywhere the Lord owned his labors." — Conference Minutes, 1871, p. 19.
