Stone, William Rodman
Stone, William Rodman, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in Portsmouth, N.H., July 25, 1798, but removed in childhood, with his parents, to Boston. In his twenty-second year he united with the Church; and in June, 1825, joined the New England Conference on probation. He served in the regular pastorate until 1854, when he was appointed city missionary in Cambridge, and two years after the chaplaincy of the Middlesex County House of Correction was added to his labors. In these fields of labor he continued until the infirmities of age confined him to his home. He died at Cambridge, June 27, 1875. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1876, p. 69.
