PERRYANDER C. SCOTT was a young man of brilliant talents and superior
attainments. He united with the church at Middle creek, in Boone
county, and was baptized by Robert Kirtley, August 31, 1842. In
December of the same year, he went into the constitution of the church
at Burlington, in the same county, where he was licensed to preach,
March 18, 1843. After he was licensed, he went to Georgetown College,
where he graduated with the highest honors of his class. He was
ordained to the work of the ministry, at Burlington, by John L. Waller,
Robert Kirtley, William Whitaker, J. M. Frost and James A Kirtley,
August 23, 1847. Soon after his ordination, he entered the Theological
Institute of Covington, Ky. He preached as he could make opportunity,
and not a few were converted under his ministry. He baptized about 30,
the last of whom was at Carrollton. On the 3d of April 1852, he was
killed instantly, by the explosion on the steamer Redstone, near
Carrollton. "Had he lived till the following June," said Dr. D. R.
Campbell, in a funeral discourse, "he would have taken the highest
distinction in the Theological Institute." Few young ministers, in
Kentucky, have ever been more lamented. But God's ways are not always ours.
