TAYLOR, Edward Thompson, missionary, born in Richmond, Virginia, 25 December, 1793; died in Boston, Massachusetts, 6 April, 1871. He was left an orphan in infancy, taken away by a sea-captain when seven years old, and trained as a sailor, in which calling he passed his early life. In 1819 he became a minister of the Methodist Episcopal church about 1830 he became a Bethel missionary in Boston. He served as chaplain on the frigate "Macedonian," which took supplies to the famishing Irish in 1827, and delivered addresses in Cork and Glasgow. "Father Taylor," as he was called, mingled nautical terms and figures in his discourses, and by his wit, pathos, and imagination controlled the moods and wrought upon the feelings of his hearers in a remarkable degree.
