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
