Morrow, Richard H
Morrow, Richard H.
a Presbyterian minister, was born in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, January 13, 1823. In early youth he was hopefully converted, and determined to preach the Gospel. He obtained his preparatory education in the academy at Academia, and graduated at Jefferson College, Pennsylvania, in 1851, after which he engaged for some time as teacher in the Milnwood Academy at Shade Gap, Pennsylvania. He studied theology at Alleghany and Princeton seminaries, graduating at the latter in 1854; was licensed by the Presbytery of Huntingdon, and in 1855 ordained and installed pastor of the church at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where he continued to labor until compelled by declining health to resign his charge, in April, 1859. He died June 10, 1859. Mr. Morrow was a plain and practical preacher, his style giving evidence of fine culture. He was humble, consistent, devoted, possessing in an eminent degree the happy faculty of gaining the friendship and esteem of all who knew him. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1861, page 98.
