Searle, Jeremiah

Searle, Jeremiah, a (Dutch) Reformed minister, was born at Atkinson, N. H., in 1795. He was educated in part at Bowdoin College, Me., and graduated at Union College, N. Y, in 1820. He studied theology with Dr. Andrew Yates, and was licensed by the Congregational Association of Vermont in 1823. His ministerial life was spent in the following Reformed churches: Rotterdam, N. Y., 1823-25; Coxsackie, 1825-51; Keyport, N. J, 1851-53; Fallsburgh, N. Y., 1853-61. He was a man of great sweetness of spirit, amiable and beloved; a minister and a workman who needed not to be ashamed; studious, careful in preparation, practical and experimental in preaching; solemn, and yet cheerful, in manner; catholic in his sentiments, yet firm in the faith. He was president of the General Synod in 1850. He died in 1861. His ministry was marked by truly missionary labors, and crowned with two notable revivals of religion. See Corwin, Manual of the Ref..
