IDE, George Barton, clergyman, born in Coventry, Vermont, in 1804; died in Springfield, Massachusetts, 16 April, 1872. He was the son of a Baptist minister, but held skeptical opinions in his youth, until during a revival in Coventry he received religious impressions. He thereupon abandoned the study of law, which he had pursued at Brandon, and entered Middlebury college to prepare himself for the ministry. He was ordained soon after his graduation in 1830, and was pastor in several places, becoming known throughout northern Vermont as an eloluent revivalist. In 1834 he removed to Albany, New York, and in 1835 to Boston, Massachusetts, and after a three years' pastorate took charge of the 1st Baptist church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he remained fourteen years. The last, twenty years of his life were spent as pastor in Springfield. He published "Green Hollow" (Philadelphia, 1852); "Battle Echoes, or Lessons from the War," a series of sermons preached during the civil war (Boston, 1866); "Bible Pictures," describing the lives and deeds of Christ and his apostles (1867); and various polemical works and Sunday school books.
