DAY, George Tiffany, clergyman, born in Concord (now Day), Saratoga County, New York, 8 December 1822; died in Providence, R. I., 21 May 1875. At five years of age he was set to work in a cotton mill in Hope, R. I., and for several years his time was occupied alternately in the cotton mill and at school. He studied theology, and in 1846 was ordained and entered upon his first pastorate in Grafton. Massachusetts, where he remained till 1850. While serving in various other places he became connected in 1849 with the "Morning Star" as assistant editor. He was also one of the editorial council of the "Freewill Baptist Quarterly," begun in 1853. He visited Europe in 1857 and 1866. In December 1866, he resigned pastoral duties and became editor in chief of the "Morning Star," a Freewill Baptist weekly paper, published in Dover, New Hampshire, and afterward removed to Boston. In this editorship he continued until his death. See his "Memoirs" by the Rev. William H. Bowen, D. D. (Dover, New Hampshire, 1876).
