DAVIS, John, clergyman, born in Pennepek, Pennsylvania, 10 September 1721; died in Harford County, Maryland, in 1809. He was ordained a Baptist minister in 1756, went to Maryland the same year, and became pastor of Winter Run Church in Harford County, the first permanently established Church of his denomination in the state. His labors extended into Baltimore and Frederick counties, and into the City of Baltimore. Notwithstanding the constitutional guarantees and the tradition of religious freedom in Maryland, his zeal in spreading a form of faith that was new in the community subjected him to intimidation and violence, but before his death he had established flourishing Churches in Baltimore, Frederick City, and elsewhere.
