Lewis, Isaac, D.D.
a Congregational minister, was born at Wilton, Connecticut, January 1, 1773. He graduated from Yale College in 1794, with his twin brother, Zechariah Lewis. Remaining at New Haven, he prosecuted the study of theology, and was ordained May 30, 1798. He was installed pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Cooperstown, N.Y., in 1800; in 1806 of the Presbyterian Church in Goshen; and in 1812 preached in Bristol, R.I.; subsequently served in New Rochelle and West Farms, N.Y., as a stated supply, and succeeded his father in Greenwich, Connecticut, in December, 1818. He assumed charge of the Church in Bristol, R.I., November 12, 1828. In September 1831, the failure of his voice compelled him to resign his charge, though he still preached occasionally until the time of his death, which occurred in New York city, September 23, 1854.
