Baron Steuben Stow (1801-1869), b. Croydon, NH; d. Boston, MA. American Baptist minister, educated at Columbian College, pastor of churches at Portsmouth, NH and Boston, MA.
“Stow was one of the most effective Baptist pastors of the early nineteenth century. He served New England churches for over forty years, thirty of which as the premier denominational spokesman of Boston. He figured largely in all of the city’s religious affairs, particularly the great revivals of 1838 and 1842. Although controversy later surrounded the evangelist campaign of 1842 launched by Jacob Knapp, Stow as an ardent supporter of the effort, tirelessly entreating new converts to make a profession of faith. The record of his ministry at Baldwin Street Church included over fifteen hundred sermons, thirteen hundred pastoral visits, six hundred plus baptisms, over seven hundred funerals, several hundred marriages and in excess of twenty-five thousand miles of travel.” - Brackney, The Baptists.
