Notes:
From Jonas Galusha, the Fifth Governor of Vermont, by Rev. Pliny H. White, 1866:
" In 1811 and 1812, Elon studied law with Hon. Richard Skinner but, becoming a Christian, he turned his attention to the study of Theology, became a Baptist minister, and soon was known as an eloquent and effective preacher.  His first settlement was in Whitesboro, N.Y. in 1816, and he continued there sixteen years.  During a part of that time, he was an agent for Columbia College, D.C., and had great success in raising funds for it.  He was among the most active of the founders of Hamilton Theological Seminary and spent about a year in its service.  In 1832, he became pastor of the Broad Street Baptist Church in Utica, went thence to Rochester and, at a later period, was for several years pastor in Perry.  In 1840, he visited England on behalf of a philanthropic enterprise in which he was interested.  In 1841, he became pastor in Lockport and continued there until his death.  He was a man of fine pulpit talents, of gentlemanly manners, of an eminently benevolent spirit, and of distinguished usefulness in his denomination.  His remarkable success in procuring donations for religious and charitable purposes gained him the sobriquet - King of Beggars."
