Rev. M Issac Clinton1,2

M, #18585, b. 21 January 1759, d. 18 March 1840
  • Reference: W015 ID001
  • Birth*: 21 January 1759; Woodbridge, Litchfield Co., Connecticut, USA1
  • (Groom) Marriage*: 1787; South Stratford now, Huntington, Fairfield Co., Connecticut, USA; Bride=Charity Welles3,1
  • Burial*: 18 March 1840; East Road Cemetery, Lowville, Lewis Co., New York, USA; Birth:      Jan. 21, 1759
    Death:      Mar. 18, 1840

    Isaac Clinton, son of Lawrence Clinton and Sarah Tryon, was born January 21, 1759 in Milford, Conn, and died March 18, 1840 in Lowville, NY. He married Charity Welles on
    1787.

    Ordination: January 30, 1788, As Pastor of Congregational Church at Lowville, NY.


    Rev. Isaac Clinton, the principal of the Academy at Lowville, first organized the church in 1819. The original members were William Randall, Percival Hawley, Edward Foster, Elijah Hoyt, Hosea Hough, Mrs. Hawley, Mrs. Foster, Mrs. Frances Eaton, and Mrs. Polly Copeland. The group went back and forth as to be Presbyterian or Congregational. Rev Charles G. Finney labored during July, August and September 1824 and many were moved by
    his powerful sermons. There were forty-one conversions to the church. This got the church started and in 1831 they built their first meetinghouse. Japhet Chapin was mostly responsible for building this edifice. The church grew under the direction of twenty-two different ministers and nearly seven hundred members in the aggregate. In 1869 the congregation built one of the finest stone church buildings in the area at a cost of
    $20,000.

    -----------
    In 1807 the Rev. Isaac Clinton was induced to remove from Southwick, Mass. and begin a classical school in the academic building before the charter was procured. He was employed as the first principal and (with the exception of one year, beginning in November 1813), continued in this office till 1817, at the same time serving as pastor of the Presbyterian church.
    The Rev. Isaac Clinton was born at West Milford, near Bridgeport, Ct. Jan. 21, 1759. He was a cousin of DeWitt Clinton. He graduated at Yale college in 1786, and was distinguished in his class for his acquirements in mathematics and the languages. Whilst a student in college, upon an emergency, he volunteered, with other students, as a private in the Connecticut Militia, and was engaged in one or more battles.
    He studied divinity with Rev. Joseph Bellamy of Bethelehem, Ct. In 1788 he was ordained as pastor of a Presbyterian church, at Southwick, Mass. He married Charity Wells at New Stratford, (now Huntingdon, Ct., in 1787. They had six children, of whom five died at Southwick the same week, from an epidemic, and three were dead in the house at the same time. The only remaining child was Maria, who married Ela Collins at Lowville. Two sons, subsequently born, died in Lowville. He wrote and published, while at Southwick, a work on
    Infant Baptism, of which a second edition was issued. He preached at Southwick twenty years, and removed in 1807 to Lowville, N.Y. In 1808 he built the house on the beautiful elevation west of the Presbyterian church, where he resided until his death. In 1808 he was installed minister of the Presbyterian church at Lowville and continued for ten years. In 1807 he was employed as principal of Lowville academy, and was so engaged nine years (with one year interval), when he was succeeded by S. W. Taylor. He was president of the board of academy trustees for many years, and until his death. When in his eightieth year he completed and published a book entitled Household Baptism. It is a standard work of extra-ordinary merit, and is in use in many theological seminaries of the country. He owned and cultivated about two hundred acres of land at Lowville, and he was especially devoted to the cultivation of apples and other fruit. Lewis County is much indebted to him for the introduction and distribution of many of its best varieties of apples. He was a handsome man and dressed through his life in the colonial style of his youth, viz, a low-crowned broad brimmed hat, black broadcloth coat, with wide and long skirts, velvet breeches and silver knee buckles, high top boots or shoes, and silk stockings. He died at Lowville, March 18, 1840, aged 82 years.
