Roszel, Stephen G
Roszel, Stephen G., a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in London County, Va., April 8, 1770. He was converted at the age of sixteen and soon after united with the Church. He entered the traveling connection in 1789, although, for some reason, his name is not found on the minutes until the following year, when he appears among those who remain on trial. He served the Church as preacher in charge, presiding elder, as agent for Dickinson College, and in the General Conference, until his death, which took place at Leesburg, Va., May 14, 1841. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, 7, 179; Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1842.
