Screven, Charles Odingsell, D.D.
a Baptist minister, was born at Charleston, S.C., in 1774. He graduated from Brown University in 1795, and was licensed to preach in 1801. His ministerial labors were confined to Liberty and the immediate counties. In 1806 he was elected -president of Mt. Enon College, where he remained- and taught probably two years. His only publications are two sermons. In 1802 a painful disease began to develop itself in one of his eyes. He continued to prosecute his labors until 1821. The last six years of his life were years of intense and almost uninterrupted pain. He died in New York, July 2, 1830. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, 6:4391.
