EDWARDS, Jesse, clergyman, born in Elmira, N. Y., 21 February 1819; died in Plover, Wis., 6 February 1866. He was graduated at Princeton theological seminary in 1842, and licensed to preach the same year. Removing to Indiana, he was ordained in 1845, and labored at Delphi, Rock Creek, and Monticello until 1847, when he returned to New York and preached both at Sparta and Portageville. In 1850 he went to Wisconsin as a missionary, and engaged in that work at Plover, Portage County, Stevens Point, and Grand Rapids. While thus employed he was (1859) elected professor of Latin and Greek at Carroll College, Waukesha, Wis. When that institution was closed in 1861 he returned to Plover. Mr. Edwards was distinguished for his biblical scholarship.
