Pomp, Thomas

Pomp, Thomas an amiable and eminent minister of the German Reformed Church, son of the former, was born in Montgomery County, Pa., Feb. 4, 1773. "H is literary and theological studies he pursued principally, if not wholly, under the immediate care and supervision of his devoted and accomplished father." He entered the ministry when only twenty years of age. For a short time he was pastor of some congregations in his native county. In 1796, three years after being licensed, he accepted a call from the Reformed Church in Easton, Pa. Here, in connection with some country churches, he labored earnestly and with singular fidelity for considerably more than half a century, up to near the close of his quiet and beautiful life, April 22,1852, when he was transferred from the Church militant on earth to the blessed "inheritance of the saints in light." Mr. Pomp was naturally gifted; but he was principally distinguished for his singular amiability, gentleness, meekness, and peaceful relations with all mankind. He retained to the last moment of his life the unabated confidence of his people and the warmest esteem of all who knew him. See Heisler, Fathers of the Ref. Church, 4, 15-25. (D. Y. H.)
