a Methodist Episcopal minister. Scarcely any data of his life are obtainable. He was admitted into the Philadelphia Conference in 1822, and some time later joined the New Jersey Conference. He died July 4, 1868. He was a remarkable man every way; original, strong in his convictions, peerless in self-respect and self-possession. He was one of the founders and fosterers of Pennington Seminary, and took large interest in all educational matters, except theological schools, which he opposed bitterly, on the ground that they were prolific of theological errors.
