Thomas Williams (1779-1876), born at Pomfret, CT; died at Providence, RI. Williams graduated at Yale College, 1800, afterward studying theology with Dr. Nathanael Emmons, whose funeral sermon Williams preached in 1840. - Diary of Thomas Robbins, D.D., vol. ii. p. 667. (1887).

Williams preached in and served many churches in CT, MA, and RI, at one point holding “not less than 2,200 preaching services, from April 1840, to November, 1868.” It is said that his piety was never doubted, although he suffered from some eccentricities, being “subject to partial derangement every spring.” He was always on good terms with Dr. Emmons, but did not like Prof. Stuart of Andover, “their minds being too much alike.” - quotes from Cornell’s Lives of Clergymen, Physicians and Eminent Business Men...vol. ii. (1881).  (5553)
