Biography

Timothy Dewey. [1] [2][3] [4]

Born 1 SEP 1771. Manchester, Hartford County, Connecticut, United States. [5] [6][7]

Quote from Dr. George Peck's autobiography "The Life And Times Of George Peck" (Nelson & Phillips, Cincinnati, 1874) in which he notes several times Timothy Dewey's help at Methodist "camp meetings." Speaking about one such meeting he says: "The meeting was rather feeble at the beginning, but powerful toward the close. Timothy Dewey, commonly called Father Dewey, preached a terrific sermon on the words, 'Prepare to meet thy God.' There was a large number of the wicked in attendance, and they had been troublesome, and seemed reckless. The hearts of the brethren were faint. Father Dewey was just the man for the occasion. He stood before the crowd like a giant among pigmies, and his voice was clear as a trumpet, and terrible as thunder. He came down upon the wicked in such sort that hundreds of them, who had been apparently as careless as so many cattle, listened with amazement and terror. God's people took heart, and began to struggle for victory. There was an unbroken roar of fervent supplication all over the ground, while the awful voice of the preacher resounded above this tempest of prayer, and every word was heard as distincly as if in the silence of midnight. "O sinner, sinner," thundered the preacher, "Are you determined to take hell by storm? Can you dwell with devouring fire? Can you stand eternal burnings? Are your bones iron, and your flesh brass, that you plunge headlong into the lake of fire?"

Also father to George Robert Dewey (1794-1850ish) by his first wife, Anne McKee.

Died 14 JUN 1850. Cazenovia, New York. [8] [9]
