Klappentext

Excerpt from Decennial Register of the Society of Colonial Wars in the State of California, and Proceedings at the Eleventh General Court, December 21, 1905

Descended in the seventh generation from Governor Joseph Treat of Connecticut, and in the fourth generation from Joseph Platt Cooke, Colonel of the Sixteenth Regiment of Connecticut troops in the War of the Revolution, Alexander Moss Merwin, from his early youth until he passed to the eternal hereafter, was identified with the best thought for the conservation of an honest and en lightened government in the civil and religious affairs of a people whose independence his ancestors had helped to achieve, and his name ranks high in the roll of the leading Captains of the Church Militant.

Motherless at three years of age, until his tenth year his home was with relatives in New Haven and New York. Entering Williams College, he was graduated in 1863 with the degree of Bachelor of Arts, and the same year he matriculated in Princeton Theological Seminary, from which in 1866 he received the degree of Bachelor of Divinity. In subsequent years the degree of Master of Arts was conferred upon him by Williams and Yale Colleges.

In his early years he was connected with the American Sunday School Union and the Bible Society, and during the War of the Rebellion he was Acting Chaplain at the hospitals of Alexandria and Fortress Monroe and agent in the Shenandoah Valley, of the Sanitary and Christian Commissions.

Under the auspices of the Presbyterian Board, he went to Chile as a missionary, where, under his supervision, was organized the first Protestant Chilean Church in that republic, at Santiago, and he was the first pastor of Chilean Protestants at Valparaiso. He remained in Chile nineteen years, carrying on the work of pastor, editor and superintendent of schools until 1885, when he returned to the United States.

In 1886 he came to Southern California, from which period until his death he was engaged in missionary labors for the Mexicans, and through his efforts, Presbyterian congregations were organized,and church edifices erected at Los Angeles, San Gabriel, Alhambra, South Pasadena, Lamanda Park and Azusa, and a Girl's Home and School was established and placed upon an enduring basis in Los Angeles.
