BROADDUS, Andrew, clergyman, born in Caroline County, Virginia, 4 November, 1770; died in Salem, Virginia, 1 December, 1848. At the age of eighteen he united with a Baptist church, and began exhortations and preaching. His education had been limited, but he had a mind of more than ordinary capacity and an impressive and graceful elocution, which, added to his youthful appearance, made him a favorite as a preacher. In 1821 he became assistant pastor of a church in Richmond, and in 1832 he was moderator of the Dover association of Baptist churches. He declined the pastorate of leading Baptist churches in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and various southern cities, and lived and died a country pastor. In 1843 the degree of D.D. was conferred by the Columbian College, Washington, District of Columbia, but declined. He wrote extensively for the press, and published in the early part of his ministry a "History of the Bible." This was followed by a "Catechism," "A Form of Church Discipline," the "Dover" and "Virginia Selections of Hymns," both of which were long popular in several states, and "Letters and Sermons." Some of his sermons, with a memoir by J. B. Jeter, D.D., were published in New York in 1852.
