No. 815 in Roberts, Revival Literature: Jedidiah Burchard. d. 1864 at Adams, NY. "Apparantly his education was of a private nature. His ministry commenced about 1820. Licensed by the Black River Association, he was called to assist the Rev. Dr. Aiken of the First Presbyterian Church in Utica. He soon launched into full-time 'revival' work. It is claimed that both Orson Parker and Charles G. Finney were converted as a result of Burchard's ministry at Adams, New York. A very eccentric man, Burchard was severely criticized for the wild fire approach he employed. In many cases the damage he wrought seemed to be equal if not greater than the good done. Nevertheless, thousands appeared to have been converted under his preaching, and there is general agreement that he took great pains to instruct the converts and to provide them a good foundation. He was usually assisted by his wife who held meetings for women and children." - Roberts, Revival Literature, no 814.
