Codding, Ichabod

Resource Toolbox

a Congregational minister and lecturer, was born at Bristol, N.Y., in 1811. He early manifested the eloquence and zeal for reform which characterized his whole life, becoming a popular speaker on temperance at the age of seventeen. At twenty he entered Canandaigua Academy, and prepared for college, teaching in the English department at the same time. In 1834 he entered Middlebury College, and began a fervid attack upon slavery, which resulted in his leaving the college. For the next five years he traversed the New England States and New York, as the agent of the American Anti- slavery Society, and though persecuted and often seriously injured by mobs, never lost his self-command, nor displayed a violent or vindictive spirit. In 1842 Mr. Codding went West, and having entered the Congregational ministry, spent the remainder of his life as pastor successively at Princeton, Lockport, Joliet, Baraboo, Wis., and Bloomington, Ill., lecturing meantime in almost all parts of Illinois against slavery. He died in Baraboo, Wisconsin, June 17, 1866. See Appleton's Annual Cyclop. 1866, page 567.
