CROCKER, Nathan Bourne, clergyman, born in Barnstable, Massachusetts, 4 July 1781; died in Providence, R. I., 19 October 1865. He prepared for College at Sandwich academy, was graduated at Harvard in 1802, studied medicine, and then theology, took orders in the Protestant Episcopal Church in 1803, and was elected rector of St. John's Church in Providence, over which he presided until his death, with the exception of a few years, during which his health prevented his preaching. He was secretary of the corporation of Brown University from 1837 till 1843. The ministerial life of Dr. Crocker was identified with the history of the Episcopal Church of Rhode Island, which contained but four Churches of that denomination when he assumed his pastorate. Some of his sermons and occasional addresses and lectures were published.
