Lynd, Samuel W., D.D.
a Baptist minister, was born at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, December 23, 1796. He was baptized by Reverend Dr. William Staughton in 1820; was well educated, and in 1824, was called to the pastorate of a church in Philadelphia, from which he was soon laid aside by severe illness. For a time, he, with his wife, conducted a female institution in Baltimore. In 1831 he began his labors as pastor of the Sixth Street Church, Cincinnati, Ohio, his ministry being eminently successful. He remained here until 1845, when he removed to St. Louis, Mo., and became pastor of the Second Church in that city. About 1848 he was elected president of the theological institute in Covington, Kentucky, and remained in this position until 1854, when he took up his residence on a farm near Chicago. His other pastorates were at Lockport, Illinois, the North Church, Chicago, and the Mt. Auburn Church, Cincinnati, Ohio. He died at Lockport, Illinois, June 17, 1876. See Minutes of Ill. Anniversaries, 1876, page 14. (J.C.S.)
