Pierpont, Hezekiah B.
an American Presbyterian minister, was a native of Connecticut, and was born about 1791. In 1821 he came to New York state and settled at Rochester, and soon after was ordained a Presbyterian minister. He became the pastor of a Church in Hopewell, Ontario County, for several years. He was then called to the pastorate at Avon, and there he lived until about 1861, when he moved to Rochester, N.Y., where he died in 1871, beloved by all his acquaintances for his many social and genial qualities. Indeed, none knew him but to honor him, both as a Christian and as a gentleman. "He lived a long life of usefulness as a pastor of the Presbyterian Church, and died full of years, in the blessed consciousness of a blameless life as an honored servant of God's ministry."
