Happiness Hunters – Cornelius Tyree (Christian devotional reading)

Tyree, Cornelius, D.D. was born Sept 14, 1814 in Amherst Co VA. He united with the Mount Moriah church in 1832 although strongly persuaded by his family and friends, all ardent Methodists, to join the Methodist church. After receiving an excellent training in the schools of the neighborhood, he was a teacher for two years near Lynchburg. In the fall of 1837 he was licensed to preach by the Lynchburg church and sent to William and Mary College. In the fall of 1838 he entered the Columbian College and pursued the partial course. In 1839 he was appointed by the General Association missionary for the counties of Greenbrier and Monroe, where his labors were geatly blessed. He was ordained in September 1839 at Amwell church, Fayette Co.. In the later part of his year he was transferred to Rockbridge County as missionary. In 1840, under his ministry, two new churches were organized, one at Lexington and one at Cow Pasture Bridge, Va., of which churches he remained pastor five years. Here Dr. Tyree baptized Prof. G.E. Dabney and many of the students of the Military Institute of Lexington. In 1845 he succeeded Rev. Jesse Witt as pastor of the churches in Powhatan County, with two of which he remained twenty-seven years. While with these churches he also preached extensively within and without the State as an churches, and in the meetings in which he participated not less than 3000 were hopefully converted. Dr Tyree has been busy with his pen also, although his pastoral and evangelistic labors have been so pressing. In 1858, Sheldon & Blakeman published his “The Living Epistle,” with an introduction by Dr. R. Fuller. A number of his sermons have been published in the Baptist Preacher and in the Religious Herald. A valuable little tract on “Baptism and Restricted Communion” has also been widely circulated. Dr. Tyree has also prepared a small work, “Believe and Live,” and a volume of quickening sermons preached at protracted meetings, both which he hopes soon to publish. Some of these sermons have been greatly blessed in the conversion of souls. In the spring of 1872 he removed to Bedford Co., Va., and became pastor of the Liberty church, one of the most thriving bodies in the State. Dr. Tyree has been eminently successful in his labors. In 1869 the Columbian College conferred upon him the degree of D.D.
