Wambaugh, Abraham B
Wambaugh, Abraham B.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Hunterdon County, N.J., Oct. 26, 1815. He was converted at the age of thirteen; joined the Ohio Conference in 1838, and served at Jamestown, Bellefontaine, East Liberty, Jamestown a second term, Columbus, and Circleville. In 1844, because of failing health, he located, studied law, and for six years pursued that profession, though all the time punished by a guilty conscience. In 1862 he was readmitted into the Conference, in which he labored earnestly until his death, Aug. 14, 1873. Mr. Wambaugh was a minister of large ability, reserved among strangers, amiable among acquaintances, always very dignified. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1873, p. 146.
