"Cuyler, Theodore Ledyard, clergyman, b. in Aurora, N.Y., 10 Jan., 1822, of which town his great-grandfather, Gen. Benjamin Ledyard, was the founder. He was graduated at Princeton in 1841, and at the Princeton theological seminary in 1846. Two years afterward he was ordained into the Presbyterian ministry, and for a short time was pastor of the church in Burlington, N.J. Shortly afterward he was installed pastor of the 3d Presbyterian church in Trenton, N.J., and remained there until 1853, when he accepted an invitation from the Market street Reformed Dutch church in the city of New York. During the seven years of his ministry to this congregation occurred the remarkable and wide-spread religious revival of 1858. In the impressive services connected with this awakening Dr. Cuyler took a prominent part. In April, 1860, he was invited by the Lafayette avenue Presbyterian church, Brooklyn, N.Y., to become its first pastor, and under his charge the church rapidly grew to be one of the largest and most prosperous in the denomination, and it has twice outgrown its spacious buildings and sent out "colonies," As a preacher he has been remarkably influential, and nearly 3,500 members have been borne on the rolls of his church. He is a regular writer for the religious press, to which he has contributed nearly 3,000 articles, many of which have been republished and translated into foreign languages. He has also written a large number of tracts on temperance. The titles of his books are "Stray Arrows" (New York, 1851); "The Cedar Christian" (1863); "The Empty Crib" (1868); "Heart Life" (1871); "Thought Hives" (1872); "Pointed Papers" (1876); "From the Nile to Norway" (1881); "God's Light on Dark Clouds" (1882); "Wayside Springs" (1884); and "Right to the point" (spare-minute series, Boston, 1884). A large volume of miscellaneous articles on religious topics has been published in Dutch, and still another in Swedish ."
