Niblock, Isaiah, Dd

Niblock, Isaiah, D.D., a Presbyterian minister, was born in Monaghan County, Ireland, in 1794. He studied divinity under the care of John Dick, D.D., professor of theology in the United Secession Church in Glasgow, Scotland, and was licensed to preach in 1817. He came to America in 1818, and commenced immediately to preach in Philadelphia. In December of the same year he was induced to go west of the Alleghany mountains, where he received appointments to supply the vacancies northwest of the Alleghany River for three months. On April 23,1819, he was called by the united congregations of Butler and White Oak Springs, over which he was ordained and installed, by the Monongahela Associate Reformed Presbytery, in May of the same year. His ministry in Butler County lasted for over forty-five years, during which time many colonies branched off from the field of his labors, whose influence has been felt extensively in building up flourishing congregations in the great West. He died June 29, 1864. Dr. Niblock was a minister of modest disposition and retiring habits. He was an able and faithful expositor of the Scriptures. His life was one of self-denial and arduous labor. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1866, p. 277. (J. L. S.)
