Joseph Banvard (1810-1887), b. New York City; d. Neponset, Massachusetts. Born to a family belonging to the Moravian Church, Banvard became a Baptist pastor, historical writer, and hymnodist. His father descended from the French Huguenots, and his mother's family traced back to the earliest New England settlers.

"He had a keen interest in American history, especially that of the colonial era. In his writing of history he showed some knowledge of the use of sources." - prabook online.
