"Rev. Thomas Keniston, son of Joshua and Mary (Trickery) Keniston, was born at Woodbury, VT., Dec. 9, 1819. He studied one year at New Hampton ((NH) and was converted in his twenty-first year. Licensed to preach in February 1842, he was ordained the next year by the Lisbon Quarterly Meeting, at Bethlehem. He has labored at Canton, Hollis, Falmouth, Lebanon, Sandwich, Bethlehem, Gilmanton, Loudon, and Campton, N.H., where over 1400 have been baptized. He has been unable to preach much for several years on account of infirmities, though he still trusts God in sunshine or storm. He married Abby L. Moody, Oct. 8, 1842, and has four children living. For nine months he served his county in the war."
