Elias Root Beadle (1812-79) was a missionary to Syria and pastor of Presbyterian churches in Albion, New York; Hartford, Connecticut; New Orleans; and Philadelphia (pp. 13-17). In Herrick Johnson: An Appreciative Memoir (New York: Fleming H. Revell, 1914), Charles Edward Robinson writes that he and Johnson “had been intimately associated while they were pastors together in Philadelphia (pp. 78-79); on the basis of that friendship, the Second Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia invited Johnson to preach Beadle’s memorial sermon, which was published in Memorials of Rev. Elias R. Beadle, D.D., LL. D. (Philadelphia: Chandler Printing House, 1881). Johnson was working in New York at the time, and the sermon was delivered outside Appalachia; it is included in the Library to help paint a complete picture of his preaching.
