Barrett, Rev. Selah Hibbard, son of
Rev. Selah Barrett, was born in Rutland,
0hio, Feb. 24, 1822.
Deprived of the advantages of the schools
because of ill health, he devoted himself
perseveringly to study at home and gained
a knowledge of the branches usually taught in
college and afterwards completed courses
in law and medicine. He experienced
forgiveness of sins in 1838, received license to
preach in 1845, and was ordained
in 1856 by the Meigs Q. M.,his ministry
being spent within its bounds. He
devoted much time to literary labor,
having been a frequent correspondent of
the Morning Star and other periodicals
nearly forty years, and having prepared
several pamphlets and books, among
them "Memoirs of Eminent Preachers of
the Freewill Baptist Denomination," and
an Autobiography of about 400 pages.
He was married, Sept.1,1860, to Miss
Rebecca Ann Simms, who died in March,
1882, after a long illness, and the bereaved
husband followed Sept. 1, 1883,
leaving to his son and daughter the precious
memory of his faithful devoted life.
