He was graduated at the University of Pennsylvania in 1810, at Princeton theological seminary in 1813, was ordained in 1815, and settled successively over Presbyterian churches in Salisbury, Pennsylvania, Trenton, and New Brunswick, New Jersey, until 1823, when he became pastor of the Independent church in Savannah, Georgia. whence he was called in 1830 to the presidency of Dickinson college, Pennsylvania In 1882 he became pastor of the 1st Reformed Dutch church of New Brunswick, New Jersey, continuing in this charge until failing health induced his resignation in 1861. Union college gave him the degree of D. D. in 1830. Dr. How was an old school Presbyterian, was fearless in the espousal of unpopular subjects, took extreme views in defence of slavery, and, in connection with the request of the classis of North Carolina of the German Reformed church to be admitted into the body of the Dutch Reformed, he published a volume urging its admission, under the title "Slaveholding not Sinful" (New Brunswick, New Jersey, 1855). Among many sermons and addresses he published "The Gospel Ministry" (New Brunswick, New Jersey, 1838); "Tribute of Filial Affection on the Death of Mrs. Jane Kirkpatrick" (1851); "Sermons" (1851); "Sermon on the Death of Reverend Dr. Jacob J. Janeway" (1858); and " Funeral Sermon on the Death of Littleton Kirkpatrick" (1859).
