Resource Toolbox

a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Pittsburgh, Pa., Aug. 15, 1817. Following his natural inclinations, he became a votary of the histrionic art, and acquired some celebrity therein, He was the associate of Forrest, and also Parsons, who, like him, abandoned the stage for the Christian ministry. He experienced conversion at the age of thirty, and soon afterwards entered the Pittsburgh Conference. He grew in knowledge and grace with a rapidity rarely surpassed, and labored with great zeal and fidelity until near the close of his life, when he became superannuated, and retired to Pittsburgh, where he died, April 21, 1862. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1862, p. 43.
