Sturges, Alfred Gallatin

Sturges, Alfred Gallatin, a Methodist Episcopal minister, wash born at Uniontown, Pa., March 11, 1813. He experienced religion in 1829, was licensed to exhort and subsequently to preach in 1832, admitted on trial in the Pittsburgh Conference in 1833, and appointed to Gustavus Circuit, Warren District. In 1834 he was appointed to Salem Circuit; in 1835 was admitted into full connection, and appointed to Erie station; in 1836, to Hudson Circuit; in 1837, to Painsville Circuit; in 1838-9, to Ravenna Circuit; in 1840-41, to Warren; in 1842, to Poland Circuit; in 1843, to Youngstown; in 1844, to Meadville, where, on account of ill health, he was compelled to desist from labor. He died Nov. 4, 1845. Mr. Sturges possessed talents of a superior order as a minister. The high estimate in which he was held may be seen from the fact that for six years in succession he was elected to the responsible office of conference secretary. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 4, 53. (J.L.S.)
