Rouse, Peter P

Rouse, Peter P., a clergyman of the Reformed Church in America, and the son of a respectable farmer, was born at Catskill, N.Y., March 29, 1799. He graduated at Union College in 1818, and at New Brunswick Theological Seminary in 1821; was settled in Florida, N.Y., from 1822 to 1828; and in the First Reformed Church, Brooklyn, from 1828 to 1833. He was a good scholar, an animated, instructive, and eloquent preacher, and a thorough pastor. His brief ministry was closed by death, from hemorrhage of the lungs, in June, 1833; the immediate result of intense feeling produced by a pastoral visit to an afflicted parishioner. His memory is cherished with great affection in the ancient Church and denomination of which he was an ornament. He departed this life in Christian triumph. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, 9, 203. (W.J.R.T.)
