Bio of this man's ministerial work found by FAG member wvy #46555353 in an old "Free Baptist Cyclopedia," pub. 1889, by Burgess and Ward

Title: "Rev."
Born in New York
Died: in Columbia, NY

"Rev. Benjamin McKoon, a brother of Rev. D.W. McKoon, died in Columbia, N.Y., Nov. 16, 1880, aged 81 years. His parents were shown on Family Tree(s) as: Martin McKoon and Rhoba Williams McKoon. At the age of seventeen, he became a Christian and was baptized by Rev. Wm. Hunt. He was ordained at Unadilla Porks in 1823, and for fifty-seven
years, he preached the gospel with zeal and earnestness, and often with great power. His early labors were in the Chemung valley and adjacent country. Afterwards for sixteen years he labored in central New York and in Oswego and Jefferson counties, his efforts being crowned with
very marked success. Then after years of successful ministry in western New York, he moved from Ellington to Hillsdale [Mich.] to educate his children. Returning in 1861, he preached at Columbia, German Flatts, Oxford and Holmesville, and six years later, took up pastoral work in
Chautauqua and Cattaraugus Counties, and continue it until health would no longer permit. He had baptized about eight hundred converts, and the last three years of life were largely spent in visiting former fields of labor, confirming the saints. Christ and His cross, and the atonement was to him the pivotal point on which rested the great work of the soul's salvation.
He was a delegate to the General Conference of 1847 from the Holland Purchase Y.M. His son, Prof. Bela P. McKoon, of Hillsdale College, Whitestown Seminary, and later of Cornell University, has in these institutions rendered efficient service as an educator."
