Urquehart, John a graduate of the University of St. Andrew's, Scotland, and a youth of singular promise and piety, was born in Perth, June 7, 1808. In April, 1824, he made a decided profession of piety, and consecrated his powers entirely to the service of his Redeemer. He left the university in 1826 with the reputation of being by far the most eminent of his class, although then but seventeen years of age. He decided to become a missionary to the heathen, but, on account of his youth, was induced to wait a while before entering upon the arduous duties of that station. He died Jan. 10,1827, at the age of eighteen. See his Memoirs, Letters, and Select Remains, by Orme.
