GILLETTE, Abram Dunn, clergyman, born in Cambridge, Washington County, New York, 8 September, 1807; died in Lake George, New York, 24 August, 1882. He was chiefly self-educated, but was for a time a student in Granville academy, and attended occasional lectures in Union College. After teaching for a time, he entered the Baptist ministry in 1832, and held pastorates in Schenectady, Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, D.C. He was a manager of the American Baptist publication society in 1836-'48. In 1869 illness compelled him to retire from the ministry. In 1887 a memorial window was placed in Calvary Baptist Church, New York, in his memory. He published a " History of the Eleventh Baptist Church, Philadelphia," "Memoir of the Reverend Daniel H. Gillette," and "Pastor's Last Gift," and edited "Social Hymns" and the minutes of the Philadelphia Baptist association from 1707 till 1807. He also contributed largely to journals. "Reminiscences of the Life and Labor of A. D. Gillette, D.D.," by four of his friends and associates, was published in New York, 1883.
