FOREMAN, Stephen, clergyman, born in Ooyougilogie, near Rome, Georgia, 22 October 1807; died in Park Hill, Indian Territory, 8 December 1881. His mother was a full-blooded Cherokee, his father white. His first teaching was in the mission school, and he afterward spent a year and a half at Union seminary. He spent one year, 1831'2 at Princeton, then two years in the theological department of Marysville College, Tennessee, was licensed by Union presbytery, Tennessee, in September 1833, and two years later ordained as an evangelist. From 1834 till 1838 he labored among his people at Candy's Creek Church. In the latter year his nation was compelled to remove to Arkansas, where he followed them and served as their pastor until the beginning of the civil war, when he became missionary in Texas, then returned to his former home among his people, where he lived for the remainder of his life. He was in part supported by the American board of commissioners for foreign missions, and during the last years of his life built a Church out of his funds, and preached in it.
