Martindale, Theodore Dwight
Martindale, Theodore Dwight a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born, of Congregational parents, at Greenfield, Mass., Nov. 28, 1820; was educated at the Western Reserve Seminary; taught for a time after his conversion; served in the local ministry for several years; was admitted into the Ohio Conference in the fall of 1852, and appointed to Blendon Circuit. His subsequent appointments were Maysville, Marietta, Logan, Pickerington, and Newark, when, in 1862, his connection with the Conference was dissolved, and thenceforth he sustained the relation of local preacher. In the fall of 1871 the presiding elder of the Zanesville District, at the request of the Circuit, appointed him as a supply with the venerable David Smith on the Hebron Charge, in the bounds of which he resided. He entered upon the work with commendable zeal and with general acceptability, but died on April 7, 1872. He was gifted and fluent in language, and his pulpit efforts generally ranged above mediocrity. See S. C. Riker, in West. Christ. Advocate, July 10, 1872.
