Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1861 edition. Excerpt: ... all ministers who were born in Connecticut, or here received their early education and license to preach the gospel, who attained to the ministerial age of fifty years. The list contains the names of two hundred and fifteen ministers, of whom twenty-two were supposed to be living July 1st, 1860, and only forty-one have not ministered to our churches. Of this latter class there are probably others who. have been in the ministry fifty years, but the fact has not been ascertained. Of nine the age is put down as 49, but probably by reckoning from the date of their license, as Dr. Sprague does, the most of these attained the full period of 50 years. Many more were in the ministry nearly fifty years. The average of the whole is about fifty-five years. Five in italics, not counted above, did not continue in the Congregational ministry, though once pastors. Abiel Abbott, D. n., ... Coventry; New Hampshire, 64 Caleb Alexander, ... Lie.
