NEELY, Henry Adams, P. E. bishop, born in Favetteville, New York, 14 May, 1830. He was graduated at Geneva (now Hobart) college in 1849, studied theology under Bishop De Lancey, and meanwhile was tutor in the college in 1850. He was ordained deacon in Trinity church, Geneva, New York, by Bishop De Lancey, 19 December, 1852, and priest in Trinity church, Utica, New York, by the same bishop, 18 June, 1854. He became rector of Calvary church, Utica, in 1853. After two years' service he accepted a call to Christ church, Rochester, New York, in 1855, and held that post until 1862, when he became chaplain of Hobart college. In 1864 he removed to New York city, having been chosen assistant minister in Trinity parish, with special charge of Trinity chapel. He received the degree of S. T. D. from Hobart in 1866, and the same from Bishops' college, Quebec, Canada, in 1875. Having been elected second bishop of Maine, he was consecrated in Trinity chapel, New York, 25 January, 1867. On removing to Maine he became rector of St. Luke's church, Portland, which was constituted the cathedral parish of the diocese. Not long afterward a proper cathedral church was erected, and was consecrated, 18 October, 1877. Bishop Neely has published a few occasional sermons, several addresses to his convention, and various contributions to current church literature.
