Ninde, William W

Ninde, William W., a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born at Lyons, N. Y., Dec., 1809; was converted at Cazenovia Seminary about 1815; entered the Genesee Conference in 1828; was set off with the Oneida Conference in 1829; and from that to the Black Kiver Conference in 1835; and stationed in Oswego in 1835-6, aid in Syracuse, 1837-8. In 1843 he was made presiding elder of Rome District,hnd attended the General Conference at New York in 1844 as reserve delegate, in place of George Gary, missionary to Oregon. He died at Delta, N. Y., Feb. 27 1845. Ninde was a man of rare eloquence and power in the pulpit. A creative imagination, a sound judgment, respectable culture, large knowledge, and the sweet baptism of sanctifying grace made him one of the most independent, and at the same time one of the most persuasive preachers of his conference; and his pastoral and administrative abilities were excellent. "Ninde," says Dr. George Peck, in his Life and Times (N. Y. 1874, 12mo), "was one of the most gifted of our young ministers. His discourses were eloquent, and often powerful, overwhelming. He was a devoted, earnest Christian. He died early, but his name is still held in grateful remembrance" (p. 196). He was some time secretary of his conference, and his early death was a loss to the Church. See Minutes of Conferences, 3:624; Black River Conf. Memorial, p. 94; Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, vol. 7:(G. L. T.)
