REV. JACOB WEED EASTMAN, A.M., READING. Congregationalist, 1830-1833.

He was born in Sandwich, N. H., in the year 1788. He died in 1852, or near that time. He was not a graduate of Dartmouth College, but received the honorary degree of A.M. from that institution in 1822. He was ordained pastor of the First Congregational Church of Methuen, Mass., Dec. 13, 1815; was dismissed October, 16, 1828, to go to Reading, Mass., where he was installed Nov. 19, 1828; and was dismissed in 1831, as it was his intention to settle in the West. He was installed over the Presbyterian Church, Rocky Spring, Highland Co., Ohio (P.O. New Petersburgh), Dec. 14, 1831. He was very successful there, remaining as pastor until after 1841. He continued to reside at New Petersburgh until about 1850, when he removed to Hanover, Indiana, where he preached, and where he died.

His parents were James and Susan (French) Eastman, who were Quakers or Friends. His wife's name was Mary Webster. He had a son, John C. Eastman, who was ordained, as Presbyterian, at Washington, Ohio, in 1835.
