Download Full Text
Much of the ministry of Robert Johnston (1774-1861) took place in Appalachian Pennsylvania, in Crawford, Indiana, and Venango counties (pp. 10-12, 19). Swift became acquainted with him sometime in the 1820s (p. 3), and preached his memorial sermon on September 29, 1861. It was published later that year, along with “A Minute Adopted by the Presbytery of Beaver” and “An Obituary Notice of Mr. Johnston, Prepared by the Rev. Loyal Young, D. D. and Originally Published in the Presbyterian Banner” (pp. 19, 21).
