Palmer, Walter C, Md
Palmer, Walter C., M.D.
a devoted Methodist evangelist, was born February 9, 1804. He was converted in 1817, and among the hallowed associations of the "Old Allen Street Church" in New York, grew up to a beautifully developed Christian character. He practiced medicine for many years in that city, and at length, in connection with his saintly wife, gave up his time to labors for the conversion and sanctification of souls, travelling extensively, and holding meetings everywhere in this country as well as in Great Britain. He died at Ocean Grove, July 29, 1883. See (N.Y.) Christian Advocate, January 3, 1884; Simpson, Cyclop. of Methodism, s.v.
