Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Watrous Beckwith (born 1831 in Raleigh, North Carolina and died November 23, 1890) was the Second Bishop of Georgia. He was the 86th bishop of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America (ECUSA). Beckwith was graduated from Trinity College, Hartford in 1852 and two years later was ordained as a deacon and later priest in the Episcopal Church. Before the American Civil War, he served in North Carolina and Maryland. During the war, he served as a chaplain on the staff of Confederate General William J. Hardee. Following the war, Beckwith served churches in Demopolis, Alabama and Deer Creek, Mississippi. Late in 1865 accepted a call to serve Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in New Orleans as its rector. He served that church for three years before being elected as the second Bishop of the Diocese of Georgia.show more
