Waller, Edmund

Waller, Edmund a Baptist minister, was born in Spotsylvania County, Va., Jan. 1, 1775. His father and uncle were Baptist ministers, and distinguished for their zeal for the truth during the times of persecution in Virginia. His hopeful conversion occurred when he was but thirteen years of age. He delayed making a profession of his faith in Christ until he was twenty-three years of age, uniting, in 1798, with the Baptist Church at Bryan's Station, Fayette Co., Ky. In 1802 he was licensed to preach, and ordained May 11, 1805. Following the practice of Baptist ministers in the section, of the country in which he lived, he had the pastoral care of two or three churches at the same time. He preached during the last years of his life for two churches — one at Mount Pleasant, and the other at Glenn's Creek — dividing his time between them. His ministry was a successful one. He is believed to have baptized fifteen hundred persons, most, if not all, of whom connected themselves with churches under his pastoral care. He died in 1843. See Baptist Memorial, 2, 267. (J. C. S.)
