Taylor, Ezekiel Dunton

Taylor, Ezekiel Dunton a Congregational minister, was born in Bristol, Vt., June 2, 1817-the youngest of five brothers, all ministers. His early education was received at St. Lawrence Academy, Potsdam, N. Y., and Western Reserve Preacher's Seminary. After leaving the latter institution he became principal of Shaw Academy, Euclid, O., and remained in that position until he began the study of theology, which he prosecuted under the direction of the Granud River Presbytery and with his brother Chauncey. From Jan. 1, 1845, to 1847, he was acting pastor at De Ruyter, N. Y.; and after one year's labor was ordained at West Stockholm, Dec. 9, 1847, where he remained three years, until 1850, at which time he was dismissed. His next field was at Heuveltou and De Peyster as acting pastor, at which places he preached one year (from 1850 to 1851); then at Chagrin Falls, O., four years, until 1855. At Clarendon he preached eighteen years, until 1873, from which time successively, until his death, he served at South Newbury, Parkman, and Troy. He died at his home in Troy, Dec. 19, 1878. (W. P.
