REV. FRANCIS WAYLAND.

FRANCIS WAYLAND was born at home, Somersetshire, England, in 1772. He married in Norwich, Norfolk, Miss Sarah Moore, a native of that city. In 1793 they came to this country, settling in the village of Saratoga Springs in 1821. Rev. Mr. Wayland was for several years pastor of the First Baptist church of Saratoga Springs, and after retiring from his charge, having a competent income, continued to reside in this village, often supplying the desks of neighboring destitute churches without compensation. He was a staunch advocate of the cause of temperance based on Christian principle, and a man of great influence in the community; always ready to extend kindly ministration to body or soul. He died at his home in Saratoga Springs in 1849.
