Ballou, Adin. (Cumberland, Rhode Island, April 23, 1803--August 5, 1890, Hopedale, Massachusetts). At the age of nineteen he was accepted as a minister in the Christian Connexion, but later entered the Universalist ministry and served churches in Milford, Mass.; New York City; and in Mendon and Hopedale, Mass. He is noted as founder of the famous Hopedale community (1842), an experiment in "practical Christianity." A hymn by him, beginning "Years are coming--speed them onward" was included in Church Harmonies, 1873, in Hymns of the Church, 1917, and in Hymns of the Spirit, 1937. --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
