Composer: G. W. Sederquist

From The World's Crisis, 13 April 1921, p.7: "Elder Sederquist was born in Lower Granville, Nova Scotia, according to the narrative in his Life and Labors, Sept. 10, 1838. He was converted about the first of the year 1863, was baptized in February, and was soon out in the field in Gospel work, with open doors for his labors. After a few years he accepted the Adventist faith, and in the spring of 1871 entered the United States and took up his home in Lynn [Mass.]." --Entire article available in the DNAH Archives.

Stanton, Frederick S. (New Bedford, Massachusetts, December 20, 1857--October 1, 1915, New Bedford). Held a Bachelor of Music degree and was ordained to the Advent Christian ministry. He held pastorates at Hudson Falls, New York and Lawrence, Mass. Ill health and a final paralysis limited activity in his later years, although he supplied in various churches around New Bedford. He wrote words and music to a number of hymns, and composed the music for other Advent Christian hymn-writers. He was secretary of the Southern Massachusetts District Conference of his denomination. He contributed to the preparation of several of its hymnals, and was co-editor of The Golden Sheaf (1898), Carols of Hope (1906) and The Advent Christian Hymnal (1913).… Go to person page >
