Lippincott, Caleb Atmore
Lippincott, Caleb Atmore a veteran Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Pemberton township, N.J., July 26, 1803. His parents were of Quaker descent, and he was brought up a moral youth, but was full of animal spirits, and fond of all the follies of the age. He was converted among the Methodists in 1825, commenced circuit work in 1829, and in 1830 entered the Philadelphia Conference, wherein he served Tuckerton Circuit, Warren Circuit, Newton, Frankford, Germantown, Philadelphia, and Asbury (West Philadelphia). He then, in 1842, was transferred to the New Jersey Conference, and was sent in turn to Birmingham Mission, Columbus Circuit, Northampton, Flemington, Bordenitown, Morristown, Flanders, Rahway District, Stanhope, Hackettstown, Cross Street, Paterson, and Union Street, Newark; then served as tract agent; was then sent to Hurdtown, Hope, Berkshire, Hurdtown and Longwood, and Chester and Denville, at which latter place he died, June 17, 1871. Mr. Lippincott was a man of remarkable powers of mind. He was a natural orator, possessed marvellous powers of description, overflowed with wit and good humor, and was pre-eminently a revivalist.
