Phelps, Servis W
Phelps, Servis W.
a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in 1846. After completing his studies at Lowville Academy, where he was converted, he joined the New York Conference in 1868. He was first appointed to New Bremen, and then to Barnes's Corners, where, under his ministrations, more than fifty persons were added to the Church. His health suddenly failed him, and at the Conference of 1870 he was compelled to take a supernumerary relation. He died in Martinsburgh, N.Y., February 28, 1871. Phelps was naturally kind and benevolent, and possessed many excellent qualities as a minister. He had high opinions of the ministerial office, and aimed to exemplify them in his entire life and influence. See Minutes of the Ann. Conferences.
