Pell W. E., a clergyman of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born near the beginning of the 19th century. He was for many years a member of the North Carolina Conference; but, his health failing, he was obliged to relinquish traveling, whereupon he turned his attention to journalism, and subsequently became one of the editors of the Raleigh Sentinel. He was an advocate of Southern rights. He died at Raleigh, N. C., Nov. 11, 1870. See Appleton, Amer. Cyclop. 10:581.
