Beatty, Charles 1715?-1772

Charles Beatty, having received a classical education, partly in Ireland and partly in this country, entered the Log College as a student of divinity, and after having been licensed, was settled, in 1743, at Neshaminy, Pa., as the successor of his instructor, Rev. William Tennent, Sr., but he, by a permitted absence from his congregation, engaged in the public service as chaplain to the army, on several expeditions against the French and Indians. In 1763, he was appointed trustee of the College of New Jersey, and to raise funds on its behalf, went, in the place of Dr. Witherspoon, to Barbardoes, where he took the fever and died, 1772, aged 57.
