Lockwood, Samuel, D.D.
a Congregational minister, was born at Norwalk, Connecticut, November 30, 1721. After graduating from Yale College in 1745, he studied theology under the direction of his brother, Reverend James Lockwood, of Wethersfield. A society having been formed in Andover, in 1747, embracing Coventry, Lebanon, and Hebron, he was called to preach, as a candidate, in the beginning of the following year. Of this parish he was ordained pastor, February 25, 1749. He died in New Lebanon, N.Y., June 18, 1791. His manner in the pulpit was marked by gravity rather than vivacity; but he was very popular with his people. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, 1:465.
