Mackee C. B., a Presbyterian minister and educator, was born in Indiana County, Pa., March 28, 1792; was educated at the University of Pennsylvania, studied theology in the Seminary of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, and was licensed by Philadelphia Presbytery in 1819, and ordained in 1821. By untiring self-application he made himself a thorough and critical scholar, especially in the ancient classics, ecclesiastical history, Biblical literature, and theology. In 1824 he was chosen professor of languages in Cincinnati College, Ohio, which position he held until 1835, when he accepted a call as pastor of a church in Rochester, N. Y.; in 1861 he removed to Washington, D. C., to accept an appointment in the government service. He died June 5,1866. Mr. Mackee was a man of great conscientiousness, a profound scholar, a close thinker, and an instructor with rare capabilities for imparting knowledge. He published a small volume entitled A Critical Examination of the Offices of Christ. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1868, p. 117.
