Lore, Dallas Dayton, D.D.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Mauricetown, N.J., in 1815. He was converted at the age of fifteen, and at twentyone entered the Philadelphia Conference, soon receiving the most important charges. In 1847 Mr. Lore sailed for South America as a missionary, and for seven years was the pastor of a large and intelligent congregation in Buenos Ayres, proving himself eminently successful both among the foreign and native population. Upon his return he was sent on a tour of exploration to New Mexico to inspect the condition of the mission field. In 1856 he was transferred to the Newark Conference, and after serving several prominent charges within its bounds, received a transfer to the Genesee Conference, and was appointed to Grace Church, Buffalo. In 1864 he was elected editor of the Northern Christian Advocate, in which office he continued till his death, at his residence near Auburn, January 20, 1875. As a theologian, Dr. Lore was diligent and comprehensive in his researches, and careful in his conclusions. As a preacher he was earnest, direct, and practical. As an editor he achieved success by his strong and forcible style, by the boldness and wisdom of his conclusions, and by his devotion to the truth. His zeal in the cause of Christian missions was truly marvellous, and highly exemplary. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1875, page 119; Simpson, Cyclop. of Methodism, s.v.
