White, Joseph, 1713-1777

Hide Profile

Born at Fallsington, Bucks County, PA on the 11th month, 28th day, 1712 (Old Style). He began to preach in the twentieth year of his age. Being an orphan, he was brought up by relatives who so well performed the task that Samuel Folke says of him, "though he had only a mechanic education, he was admirably raised, and endowed with gifts natural and divine". He traveled in the ministry in his own country, and in 1758 went to England on a similar mission, where he remained three years. Died 10 March 1777, buried at Falls, PA, aged 64, a minister ca. 44 years.
