Reese, Daniel C., D.D.
one of the four brothers who became distinguished ministers in the Methodist Protestant Church, was born at Baltimore, Maryland, February 17, 1810. He was converted in his fourteenth year, and in 1830 became an itinerant minister in the Maryland Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church, in which he soon took a prominent position. For years he filled the onerous duties of conference steward, was repeatedly elected a representative to the General Conference, and was a member of the convention which met at Montgomery, Alabama, in 1867. From 1871 to 1873 he was president of the Maryland Annual Conference, and for forty- four years faithfully served the Church as an itinerant minister. In 1875 on account of feeble health, he was granted a superannuated relation, and died April 23, 1877. See Cobhauer, Founders of the Meth. Prot. Church, page 308.
