Robert Jefferson Breckinridge (1800-1871) b. Cabell's Dale, KY; d. Danville, KY. Breckinridge began his career as a lawyer, and was elected to two terms in the House of the Kentucky Legislature. He survived a sickness which swept off two of his daughters, was converted, and, after training under the care of the West Lexington Presbytery, was licensed to preach in 1832. He studied at Princeton under the oversight of Samuel Miller, and was installed over the Second Presbyterian Church of Baltimore, where he served for twelve years. A decidedly Old School man, Breckinridge drafted the Act and Testimony of 1837. In 1845 he accepted the position of president of Jefferson College in Pennsylvania. He was there for two years and then became pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, and was also appointed superintendent for public instruction for the state of Kentucky. In 1853 he became Professor of Exegetic, Didactic, and Polemic Theology at the new Presbyterian seminary at Danville, KY, serving until his retirement in 1869. Breckinridge was the grandfather of the Presbyterian theologian Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield.
