CODDING, Ichabod, clergyman, born in Bristol, New York, in 1811 ; died in Baraboo, Wisconsin, 17 June, 1866. He became a popular temperance lecturer at the age of seventeen, and during his junior year at Middlebury, where he entered in 1834, interested himself so much in the anti-slavery movement that he obtained leave to speak publicly in its behalf. His addresses raised such a storm of opposition that his life was several times in danger, and the College faculty, fearing the popular fury, represented that his absence was without permission. Codding compelled them to retract this statement, and then, leaving the College, served for five years as agent and lecturer of the Anti-slavery society, speaking continually in New England and New York. It is said that he never lost his self-command, though often assailed by mobs. He removed to the west in 1842, entered the Congregational ministry, and held pastorates in Princeton, Lockport, Joliet, and elsewhere. He also continued to lecture in the west, where he was greatly admired and loved.
