Samuel Parrish

Samuel Parrish was born, in Trumble county, Ohio, Feb. 27, 1811. In 1842 he moved to Illinois, and since 1846 has lived near Salem Chapel, Fulton county, Illinois, where he died August 3d, 1893. He was converted, in a meeting held in Dickerson’s barn in Knox Co., Ohio, in 1838 by Rev. Thomas, and entered into the experience of perfect love 21 years ago under the ministry of Warrington. In the departure of brother Parrish we have lost a pioneer Methodist who was personally acquainted with Finley, Cartwright and such warriors of Christ. Two well worn volumes, memories of the two named, bear testimony to his love for them. He died in the full assurance of faith having been a faithful member of the church for over fifty years. At his own request, Rev. N. H. Kane, of Astoria, spoke from Rev. 14:13. He was laid to rest in the cemetery near the Chapel which he had helped to build, and in which he had worshiped for many years.
Rev. N. H. Kane.
