Pomeroy, Swan Lyman, D.D.
Congregational minister, and a man of more than ordinary scholarship, was born March 4,1799. He was a graduate of Brown University, and of Andover Theological Seminary, where he completed his course in 1824. He was settled for some years as a pastor in Bangor, Me., and was called thence to a secretary-ship of the American Board of Commissioners of Foreign Missions. He displayed great ability and energy in this position for a number of years, but terminated his connection with it about 1860. He did not after that, we believe, have any pastoral charge. He died at Sunderland, Mass., March 17, 1869. See Appleton's Annual Cyclopaedia, 9, 503.
