PALMER, Phoebe, evangelist, born in New York city, 18 December, 1807: died there, 2 November, 1874. Her maiden name was Worrell, and in 1827 she married Dr. Walter Clark Palmer, a physician of New York city. She became interested in the Wesleyan doctrine of Christian perfection, and, professing with her husband the experience of "entire sanctification," held weekly meetings at her home for the .advancement of this doctrine for nearly fifty years. They travelled extensively in this country and in Europe in supporting their views. She was an editor of a monthly magazine entitled "The Guide to Holiness," and she was the author of "The Way of Holiness" (New York, 1845) ; "Entire Devotion" (1845); "Faith and its Effects" (1846) ; "Incidental Illustrations of the Economy of Salvation" (1852); " Promises of the Father " (1856) ; "Four Years in the Old World" (1865):" Pioneer Experiences" (1867) ; and "Sweet Mary; or A Bride made ready for her Lord" (England, 1862). in 1876 her sister, Mrs. Sarah Lankford, became the second wife of Dr. Palmer, who died in 1883, and subsequently edited "The Guide to Holiness."
