HISTORY OF KENTUCKY, by Lewis Collins, and J.A. & U.P. James, published
1847. Reprinted by Henry Clay Press, Lexington, Ky., 1968, pp. 125-126.
[Unknown county].

HENRY BIRCHETT was born in Brunswick county, State of Virginia. He
continued between five and six years in the minstry [Methodist], a
gracious, happy, useful man, who freely offered himself for four years'
service in the dangerous stations of Kentucky and Cumberland. Birchett
was one among the worthies who cheerfully left safety, ease, and
prosperity, to seek after and suffer faithfully for souls. His
meekness, love, labors, prayers, tears, sermons, and exhortations, were
not soon forgotten. He died in peace, in Cumberland circuit, on the
western waters, in February, 1794.
