Pease, Ebenezer a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in Georgia, Franklin County, Vt., Sept. 9, 1802. At the age of fourteen he was converted, and soon after united with the Methodist Church, and became a bright example of youthful piety. He received a license to exhort in 1823.
His first local preacher's license was granted in 1826. In 1845 he joined the Black River Conference, and successively served the following charges: Brasher and Massena, two years; Chateaugay, two years; Heuvelton and Depeyster, two years; Massena, two years; Lisbon, one year; Bangor, two years; next, and last, Hopkinton. He served all of these charges with great acceptability and profit to his people. He was a clear, instructive preacher, and a faithful pastor. A few years previous to his death he was afflicted with what was supposed to be softening of the brain. His mental attention to religious and temporal affairs entirely failed him, so that he had to be treated as a child. He died at Lawrenceville, St. Lawrence County, N.Y., Dec. 1, 1873.
