Segur, Seth Willard

Segur, Seth Willard a Congregational minister, was born at Chittenden, Vt., Dec. 24, 1831. At fifteen years of age he united with the Church, and soon after entered Royalton Academy, where he was fitted for college. He entered Middlebury College, and graduated in 1859. After graduation he entered the Auburn (N.Y.) Theological Seminary, and graduated in 1862. He was licensed by the Royalton Association May 8, 1861, and soon after ordained. He was installed over the Church in Tallmadge, O., June 8, 1862, and, after remaining nine years, resigned. Success attended his ministry, and during his pastorate one hundred and thirty-four were received into the Church. He was next settled at Gloucester, Mass., where he was installed June 14, 1871, and remained until 1873, when he resigned to accept a call to West Medway, over which Church he was duly installed. As a preacher his elocution was easy, graceful, and impressive, and many were drawn to the ways of righteousness. While on a visit to Tallmadge to attend a semi- centennial celebration of the Church he was taken sick, and after a short illness died, Sept. 24, 1875. (W.P.S.)
