Smith, Israel Bryant

Smith, Israel Bryant, a Presbyterian minister, was born at West Hills or Huntington, Long Island, Sept. 12, 1822. At an early age his father removed to New York, and there the son united with Dr. Hattield's Church in his fourteenth year. After three years spent in business pursuits he determined to study for the ministry, and with this end in view entered the New York University, from which he graduated in 1846. He then entered the Union Theological Seminary, and graduated in 1849. He was ordained July 12 1851; and, with the exception of three years at Mount Pleasant and Uniondale, Pa., he passed his entire ministerial life on Long Island. He supplied successively the churches at East Hampton, Fresh Pond, Northport, and Green Lawn. In 1875 he relinquished his charge, but continued to reside at Green Lawn until his death, which occurred suddenly after an illness of only a few days, July 6, 1878. He was an earnest, hard-working man, and his memory will be tenderly cherished by the churches. (W.P.S.)
