Raybold, George A.
a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 18, 1802. He was converted in April, 1822, and began to preach in 1825. In April, 1829, he withdrew from the Methodist Episcopal Church, and joined the Methodist Protestant Church, but reunited with the Methodist Episcopal Church in September, 1831. In 1833 he was admitted on trial in the Philadelphia Conference, ordained deacon in 1835, and elder in 1837. When the New Jersey Conference was formed, he was set off with it, and continued to fill the several appointments to which he was assigned until 1847, when he was granted a supernumerary relation. For over thirty years he was a great sufferer from disease, and yet maintained a devout, patient spirit until his death, at Haddonfield, N. J., Dec. 4, 1876. — Minutes of Annual Conferences of the M.
