v. James 4 Daxa, b. at Cambridge. 1735 ; d. 11 Aug. 1812, a. 77.
at New Haven, Conn. He was a graduate of Harvard Col-
lege, where he remained a resident graduate several years, pur-
suing his theological studies. In 1758 he went to Wallingf ord,
Conn. A council to settle him, and a consociation to 'prevent
his ordination, met in Wallingford the same day, the 11th Oct.
1758. The council denied the jurisdiction of the consociation.
and settled him ; but his pastoral relations were dissolved by
tuat body. It was a controversy between the Old Light and
the New Light parties. Mr. Dana was understood to belong
to the liberal school.
He took a decided stand with the patriots of the revolution, and
his Arminianism came to be regarded as a very pardonable offence.
In 1768 he was honored with the degree of Doctor of Divinity from
the University of Edinburgh. In 1780 he was called to the pastoral
charge of the first church in New Haven. His health failed in 1804 ;
and Mr. Stewart, who was afterwards professor, supplied his pulpit ;
and the society, July 30, 1805. signified by a vote their willingness
" that Dr. Dana should retire from his pastoral labors." He mani-
fested his feelings at being snubbed so curtly, by always afterwards
attendiug public service at the College Chapel, where he used to sit
in the pulpit with Dr. Timothy Dwight. In his old age he is recol-
lected as personally a mere shadow of a man — all, slender and ghost-
ly ; and his prayers at the communion service in the Chapel were re-
markably solemn, reverential and impressive. In his manners he was
extremely bland, courteous and gentlemanly. He was a trustee of
Yale College. An engraving of Dr. Dana adorns 4v The Historical
Discourses," by Rev. Dr. Bacon.
