Lemuel Haynes (1753-1833)

As the first black in America to serve as pastor of a white congregation, Haynes ministered to Rutland‘s West Parish for thirty years starting in 1783.

The illegitimate child of a black and the daughter of a socially prominent white family in Hartford, Connecticut, the five-month-old baby Lemuel was abandoned by his parents and indentured to a white family in Massachusetts. Studying Latin, Greek and theology in his twenties, and was licensed to preach in 1780.

He fell in love with a young white woman in his Connecticut congregation; she proposed to him, and they were married in 1783, producing ten children.
