LYBRAND, Joseph, clergyman, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 3 October, 1793; died there, 24 April, 1845. His parents were Lutherans, but he became a Methodist, when about ten years of age, and, after receiving a good education, was admitted in 1811 as a candidate on probation for the ministry. From that time until 1842 he labored as an itinerant Methodist preacher, exclusively within the jurisdiction of the Philadelphia conference. As a pulpit orator Mr. Lybrand took high rank. "Of the many sermons I have heard him preach," said one who knew him over twenty years, " I do not remember one that was deficient in logical structure, impassioned appeal, or chaste and beautiful illustration. His voice possessed great compass, and was round, full, and susceptible of the most tender modulations." So strong was his conviction that it was his duty to engage in no other work than that of preaching, that he declined to accept some of the most important offices in the gift of his denomination.
