CROTHERS, Samuel, clergyman, born near Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, 22 October 1783; died in Oswego, Illinois, 20 July 1856. He went to Lexington, Kentucky, with his father in 1787, entered the academy there in 1798, and, after studying at the New York theological seminary, returned to Kentucky in 1809, and was licensed to preach by the Kentucky presbytery. After a year of missionary work, he was settled, in 1810, over the Churches of Chillicothe and Greenfield, Ohio, but in 1813 devoted himself to the latter alone. In company with his former teacher in New York, Dr. Mason, he opposed close communion, and the exclusive use of what has been called inspired psahnody. Trouble growing out of his opinions on these subjects led him, in 1818, to resign his charge and move to Winchester, Kentucky. ; but he returned to Greenfield in 1820, organized a new Church, and remained pastor of it till his death. Dr. Crothers was a concise and vigorous writer and an eloquent preacher. See "Life and Writings of Samuel Crothers," by Rev. A. Ritchie (Cincinnati, 1857).
