Robertson, Wesley, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in New Providence, N.J. He was converted in 1828, and united with the Church. In 1834 he received license as a local preacher, and in 1836 was received on probation in the Philadelphia Conference. He labored with great acceptability, being instrumental in the conversion of large numbers and successful in the building of churches. In the spring of 1857 he took a supernumerary relation, and made Newark his residence, where he remained until August 1864. He then went to Jacksonville, Fla., to labor under the direction of the Christian Commission, where he died Nov. 2,1864. See Minutes of Annual Conf. 1865, p. 49.
