REV. MARVIN RICHARDSON, D.D.
iv. MARVIN, born in Stephentown, Rensselaer Co., N. Y., June 10, 1789 was named Marvelous for his father's brother, but changed his name before he entered the ministry to Marvin, probably because so much jest was made of his uncle's name.
He was, however, called Marvelous in his father's will in 1826. He was converted with his father's family, as before stated, at a camp meeting in 1806, but previous to this he had been attending the Sands Street M. E. Church, of which his uncle Marvelous was a member. His conversion commenced in the fall of 1805, while he was attending that church. It is a tradition in the family that he worked for a few years in 09 uncle's shoe shop, which was situated within a few rods of the Sands Street Church.
He was made a class leader in the church in 1807 and was licensed to preach by the New York Conference in October, 1808 he continued a member of that conference until his death, a period of sixty-seven years.
He was married to Sarah Morgan, daughter of Elijah and Lavina (Hatfield) Morgan, April 7, 1813, and had four children. The degree of D.D. was conferred upon him by Wesleyan University in 1868. He died in Poughkeepsie June 14, 1876, aged 87 years, being the oldest living member of the New York Conference. The following account of him is taken from a sketch published by the Conference:
"He received regular appointments as a minister forty-two consecutive years, of which fourteen years were spent on circuits, thirteen years in stations, and fifteen years as Presiding Elder of districts. He was a member of eight successive General Conferences from 1820 to 1862. The records of this Conference will show his regular attendance at its annual gathering without interruption or failure, for over sixty years, and his first failure which was by reason of sickness, was one of the painful disappointments of his life.
"Marvin Richardson was a co-worker with those men who, in their early ministry, enjoyed the luxuries of long weary days of travel on horseback, through trackless forests, fording rivers, sleeping in log huts, with beds often covered with snow, preaching six, eight, and ten times a week, winding up the year's toll with 'empty pockets,' with 'threadbare garments,' 'but with a harvest of souls.'
"The record of his life is a record of over 'four-score' years without a blot or stain; a record of early and deep religions experience, of consistent piety, of ardent love to God and the Church of a successful ministry, and at the close a record of 'patient waiting' and 'holy triumph.' A 'man of God' in every sense of the word, 'an Israelite indeed, in whom there was no guile.' Tender in his regard for the feelings and reputation of others, genial in spirit, ardent in affection, with child-like simplicity of manner, he multiplied and perpetuated the most endearing friendships. He was a man of strong convictions, but convictions well regulated by the power of divine grace, ever tearing lest he should err in judgment, or by any means give offense."
At one of the last conferences he attended an earnest discussion took place concerning the use of tobacco, which will he of interest, although the author does not shore his opinions on that subject. it occurred in connection with the questioning of a class of young men, who were candidates for the ministry. At the close of a very animated discussion:
"Father Marvin Richardson since dead, then the oldest and one of the most respected members of the Conference, rose from his place on the pulpit sofa and in a voice weakened by age addressed the 300 ministers present who maintained the stillness of the grave to hear him: Bishop and brethren I once was young; now I am old. I have used tobacco all my life in some one or more of its forms. It has been my comfort in trouble and often my medicine when sick. If it has ever harmed me I am not aware of it. These young men may do as their consciences dictate but as for me no pressure could be put upon me to make me testify against it and my tongue shall wither in my mouth before I say a word except in praise of that most blessed creature of God - tobacco.'"
Of course this was an ex-parte view and clearly the unpopular one in the conference The anti-tobacconists groaned, the smokers and chewers laughed until they cried, but the Conference dropped the subject for that year.
His four children were:
