Walsh, Tracy R.
a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was licensed to preach in 1827, and admitted into the South Carolina Conference in 1830. Several years later he located and assumed charge of the Marion Academy. For thirteen years the impress of his sterling character was stamped upon the youth committed to his training. During these years he did an amount of pulpit and parochial work seldom exceeded by a regular pastor. In 1849 he reentered the Conference and continued to travel until elected president of Carolina Female College in 1852. In 1860 he again entered the itinerancy, and on Oct. 20, 1867, died.
