KAVANAUGH, Hubbard Hinde, M. E. bishop, born in Clarke county, Kentucky, 14 January, 1802; died in Columbus, Mississippi, 19 March, 1884. His father, Reverend William Kavanaugh, of Irish descent, was one of the pioneer ministers of the Methodist Episcopal church. The son was educated in private schools until he was thirteen years of age, when he was placed in an office at Paris to learn the printing business. At the age of fifteen years he united with the Methodist church. He was licensed to exhort in the country pulpits in 1822, assigned to the Little Sandy circuit in 1823, where he labored several years, and afterward became pastor of various congregations in the state. In 1839 he was appointed superintendent of public instruction for the state. In 1854, he was elected a bishop, and in that office ranked as one of the ablest divines of his day. His appearance in the pulpit was impressive. His voice was strong and full, and it was always distinct, sonorous, and pleasant. His sermons were delivered without notes.
