Andrew Broaddus (1770-1848), b. & d. in Carolina County, Virginia; Baptist minister and author. "His love of letters and his studiousness were such that he became one of the most thorough Biblical scholars of his times...From the very beginning Mr. Broaddus was popular as a preacher. He was ordained Oct. 16, 1791...As a preacher, Mr. Broadus was the foremost man of his generation...About 1828 he prepared the "Dover Selection," and afterwards the "Virginia Selection," several of whose hymns were of his own composition, and all of which were used very extensively by the churches." - Cathcart, The Baptist Encyclopedia (1881).
