About Rev. Aaron Cleveland

A Patriot of the American Revolution for CONNECTICUT with the rank of Captain. DAR Ancestor #: A023053

Rev. Aaron Cleveland of Norwich, son of the preceding, was born at Haddam, CT Feb 3, 1744. His father dying when he was only thirteen years of age, the plan for giving him an education at college was defeated; and he was put by his friends in Connecticut to learn the hatter's trade, and followed that business many years. In 1779 he was a member of the Legislature of Connecticut; was ordained soon after to the Congregational ministry; and continued to perform his clerical functions in various places till his death. He was for some time resident in Norwich, Weathersfield and West Hartford; but never had a settlement in any congregation. He performed missionary service in Hartford County and vicinity and preached frequently as a supply in almost all its towns; and long afterwards was spoken of with profound respect by those who had heard him. And his wit, too, and agreeableness in company became proverbial. He published in 1775 a "Poem against Slavery;" and two sermons against War, preached just after the news of the battle of Waterloo, 1815. In the "Poets of Connecticut," were published in 1844 two poems of his "which show what he might have been with better advantages." He died of dysentery in New Haven Sept 21, 1815 at the house of a relative, Mrs. Porter; and lies buried in New Haven. (Allen's Biography; Letters of Prof. C. C. Cleveland 1846; and of Rev. A. Cleveland Coxe, 1847.) From History of Woburn
