Rev Ira Day
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 6, 1818
New York, USA
Death: Jul. 29, 1883

"DAY, Rev. Ira, was born in Burlington, N. Y. Oct. 6. 1818, and died in Fabius, July 29, 1883. He was converted when thirteen years of age, and joined the Free Baptists soon after moving to Willet, NY. He soon began to preach, and ultimately became pastor of the Willet church. Three years before his death he settled with the Fabius church, which was blessed under his labors. He was a devoted Christian, giving his service and his wealth to the Lord. A gift of $500 to the Norwich church is worthy of special notice. The Central Association, of which he was a trustee, honored him with resolutions of esteem."
