Death: Sep. 7, 1902

Rev. Lansing was the son of Alexander Lansing, and Elizabeth (Huyck) LANSING. After a severe sickness, he had a remarkable view of heaven, was converted in 1833, and ordained in 1844, taking charge of the Providence church of the Miami Q.M. and residing at Laurenceburgh, Indiana.
By an anti-slavery article in the "Morning Star" he offended some of his parishioners, but also the same article became known to people of Mainville, Ohio, and he ministered to them until 1850.
After spending three years in Jasper Co. Ind., and organizing a church there, he settled in Wisconsin, where he remained thirteen years and organized seven churches. Then, after a revival in Iowa, he moved to Nebraska and organized two churches. During his ministry he has engaged much in revival work, and baptized 1,014 converts. He represented the Ohio Y.M. in the general Converence of 1844. He has served in several local offices and has always stood firm for temperance and every moral interest in the community. In 1833 he married Lucinda Leland, daughter of Isaac Leland and Lucinda (Frost) Leland, and now (1899) makes his home with his children in Nebraska.
He and Lucinda had four children: Rachael Anne Bishop, 1834-1893; Laura P. Martin 1840-1891; Lucinda Augusta/Ann? Meeker, 1842-1924; and John Quinn Lansing, 1849-1922. In the 1900 census, Rev. Lansing was widowed, living with Chris Bishop, a grandson, along with his daughter, Anne Bishop, mother of Chris (sic)Charles, in Saunders Co. He was 92 yrs of age when he died.
