Rhea, Samuel Audley

Rhea, Samuel Audley, a Presbyterian missionary, was born in Blountville, East Tenn., Jan. 23, 1827. He graduated at the University of East Tennessee in 1847, after which he entered the Union Theological Seminary, New York, at which institution he graduated in 1850, and was ordained Feb. 2, 1851. After his ordination he was appointed missionary to Gawar, Persia, where he labored faithfully for eight years, at the expiration of which time he removed to Seir, another part of the Persian field, where he remained but a year in consequence of declining health. Being advised by his physician to return to the United States, he came to his former home, and on recovering his health returned to his post. From this place he went to Oroomiah, where he labored with zeal and success till his death, Sept. 2, 1865. (W.P.S.)
