Burroughs, William Mills
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Mercer County, N. J., June 21,1814. He was converted at Pennington, in his nineteenth year; began preaching in 1837; and in 1839 entered the New Jersey Conference.. In 1856 he became a member of the Newark Conference, and in it labored to the close of his life, April 17, 1864. Mr. Burroughs was a true friend, a devoted pastor, and a solid, rather than brilliant, preacher. Without bigotry he was firm, a lover of peace, and a promoter of harmony. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1865, p. 49.
