CREIGHTON, Rev. Kennedy

At the beginning of the year 1855, the Rev. K. Creighton was appointed to Bytown, with the chairmanship of the district. Towards autumn, a sad affliction took place in the family of Mrs. Creighton, near London, which required her husband to remove thither for the rest of the year.

His circumstances would allow him to render some help on Sabbaths to the city circuit; those services were accepted, and the junior minister appointed for London, Rev. Thomas Stobbs, was dispatched to Bytown to take charge of that important place until the ensuing Conference, while a senior brother was placed in charge of that district by the Conference Special Committee.

The removal of the young preacher out of the Town of London occasioned a deficiency of pastoral attention and Rev. Joseph L. Sanders replaced him.
