Small, Arthur M

Small, Arthur M., a Presbyterian minister, was born in Charleston, S.C. He was converted in early life, and, after an academical training in his native city, he graduated at Oglethorpe University, Milledgeville, Ga.; studied theology in the Columbia Seminary, S.C.; was licensed by Charleston Presbytery in 1854, and ordained by Harmony Presbytery in 1857. He preached for some time at Liberty Hill, S.C., then two years at Tuskegee, Ala., and finally at Selma, in the bounds of South Alabama Presbytery. During one of the raids made by portions of the United States army in the suppression of the rebellion, the town of Selma was attacked, and, with others, Mr. Small Tallied to its defense, and was instantly killed in the fight, on April 2, 1865. Mr. Small's talents were of a high order. As a preacher of the Gospel, he was universally and greatly admired, always aiming to present its plain, simple truths with great distinctness. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1866, p. 362. (J.L.S.)
