Stewart, Archibald Sinclair

Stewart, Archibald Sinclair, a Presbyterian minister, was born at Palatine, N.Y., May 3, 1823. At the age of fifteen he united with the Church at Johnstown, N.Y. In the fall of 1840 he removed with his parents to Wisconsin, and received his preparation for college at the Waukesha Academy. He entered Princeton College, from which he graduated in 1852. After graduation, he taught school at Nyack, on the Hudson, about a year and a half, and then entered Princeton Theological Seminary, and graduated therefrom in 1856. On Oct. 11 of the same year he was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of Milwaukee, and in the succeeding October was ordained an evangelist. Receiving a commission from the Board of Domestic Missions, he commenced his labors at Port Washington, where he was successful in gathering and organizing a Church, and others at Ulva and Grafton, in the bounds of the Presbytery of Milwaukee. He closed his labors in that field in 1861, returned to Nyack, joined the New York Presbytery, and was installed pastor of the Church at Waldburg. After a service of ten years he resigned, and removed to Pennsylvania. In 1872 he was installed pastor of the Langcliff Church by the Presbytery of Lackawanna. Here he spent the last four years of his life among a people devotedly attached to him. His last sermon — which he finished writing late on Saturday night, but which he was not permitted to preach was from the words of the Lord, "It is finished." He died Jan. 1, 1876, in great peace and triumph. He was a man of great humility and earnest piety, and all who knew him loved him. (W.P.S.)
