Southworth, Tertius Dunning

Southworth, Tertius Dunning, a Congregational minister, was born at Rome, N.Y., July 25, 1801. He entered Hanover College and pursued his studies, only taking a partial course. He received the degree of A.M. from that institution in 1831. He spent one year in Auburn Theological Seminary, and graduated at Andover Seminary in 1829. He commenced his labors in Paris, N.Y., where he preached two years. He was ordained at Utica, N.Y., Oct. 7, 1832, and installed at Claremont, N.H., June 18, 1834. He remained there until 1838. While there he received a call from Franklin, Mass., which he accepted, and was installed in January, 1839, in a pulpit made famous by the long occupancy of the same by Dr. Emmons. After remaining there eleven years the pastorate was dissolved, and he was called to take charge of the Church in Lyndon, Vt., where he remained four years, and accepted a call to the pastorate of Pleasant Prairie, Kenosha, Wis., in March, 1859. He remained at this post until 1868, and in the following year returned to his home in Bridgewater, N.Y. He was a man of fine presence and impressive delivery. His thinking was clear, and his sermons were logical and pithy. As a successor of Dr. Emmons, it is enough to say he filled the pulpit to the entire satisfaction of the people. He died at Bridgewater Aug. 7, 1874. (W.P.S.)
