Biographical Sketch of Rev. Jacob Haven

Posted By Dennis Partridge On In New Hampshire | No Comments

REV. JACOB HAVEN, son of David Haven, was born at Framingham, Mass., April 25, 1763. He graduated at Harvard College in 1785, studied theology with Rev. Mr. Kellogg of his native town, and was ordained and settled at Croydon, June 18, 1788. As a preacher, his sermons were always terse and logical, and his oratory solemn and impressive. He was Town Clerk thirty-one years. He died March 17, 1845, at the advanced age of eighty-two years. As he was the first, and for more than half a century almost the only clergyman in town, he is, and will long continue to be recollected with much interest-and few men have a better claim to the remembrance of their townsmen. (See also speech of Dr. Stow.)
