Nazrey, Willis

Nazrey, Willis an African bishop of the colored British Methodist Episcopal Church in Canada, was born about 1820. He entered the ministry in 1850, and preached for some time in Canada, gaining friends everywhere by his consistent Christian walk and work. He labored zealously for the promotion of the Gospel cause among his African brethren, and was finally selected by them as their bishop after the separation of the Canadian Church from the Methodist Episcopal Church of the United States. Besides the responsible work of the episcopacy, bishop Nazrey had charge of the Messenger, the Canadian paper of the colored Methodists. Bishop Nazrey died in August 1875, at Shelburne, N.S.
