Jotham Sewall (1760-1850), born at York, Maine; died at Chesterville, Maine. He served in the Revolutionary Army in the winter of 1776-7, was a bricklayer at Augusta in 1784 & 1785, and was ordained to the ministry, serving Trinitarian Congregational churches. He was raised in a plain, pious, hardworking family, and “he had a distinct recollection of having heard Whitfield preach, and was able, to his dying day, to repeat some of his figures and illustrations, as well as to describe very vividly his personal appearance. – Sprague. Sewall was converted after considering a sermon by Thomas Boston that he had heard read aloud. He was ordained an evangelist, and although he did attend to the needs of a church in Chesterville for some time, he was more widely useful and known for his itinerant work in the wilds of his home state, earning the reputation of being “The Apostle of Maine.”
