Cleaveland, John Payne, D. D. a Congregational minister, was born at Byfield, Mass., July 19, 1799. His father was the distinguished Parker Cleaveland, M.D., and his brother, professor Parker Cleaveland of Bowdoin College. He graduated from Bowdoin College in 1821, and spent one year (1823-24) in theological study at Andover. He was ordained at Salem, Mass., Feb. 14, 1827, pastor of the Tabernacle Church in that city, where he remained seven years. Shortly afterwards he went to Michigan, and was pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Detroit from June 15,1835, to Nov. Î, 1838, at which date he became president of Marshall College, Michigan. He held this office five years, during a part of this period acting as pastor of the Church of which, previously, he had been the preacher. Early in 1844 he was called to the Cleaveland, where he remained two years, and then removed to Providence, R. I., where he was pastor of the Beneficent Church from April 22,1846, to March 30, 1853. He there distinguished himself as a strong advocate of temperance and anti-slavery, and gained many warm friends. After leaving Providence he was pastor of the First Church, Northampton, Mass., from April 20, 1H53, to July 11,1855; from Oct. 2,1855, to Jan. 15,18Ü2, of the Appleton Street Church, Lowell. During a part of 1802 he was chaplain of the 30th Massachusetts Volunteers. On leaving the army he was for some time a supply of the Park and Salem Streets churches, Boston. He also preached for brief periods in one or two other churches. He died at Newburyport, Mass., March 7, 1873."
