Early Presbyterian Missionaries to Native Americans AfricaHawaiiChinaMiddle EastIndia (more to come ) Biographies are developed by PHC volunteers especially Eugene Witherspoon for ministers, James Cogswell for ministers and William Wade for both areas and staff from original research and from various published sources, such as 1884 "Encyclopedia of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America," by Alfred Nevin. This list is constantly being updated. We also are using the Presbyterian Church in the United States (Southern denomination, 1861 - 1983) published Ministerial Directories, which enabled retrieval of information. There were no such biographical directories for the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America (Northern denomination) except for a 1898 general directory, hence there will be a lag in posting and researching these ministers. Corrections and additional materials, such as photos or drawings will be made from time to time. There also is a missionary biographical listing being prepared for this web site. During 2011, there will be a master index of ministers and missionaries to aid in searches. We are adding biographies of ministers and missionaries from all Presbyterian denominations in this multi-year effort. Thanks for your patience. Please email additional information or pictures to the PHC.Shown at right are Peter and Fanny Gulick, Presbyterian missionaries to Hawaii.
Note: Alphabetic listings and additional countries are being worked on and will be uploaded to this web site soon.
