Yeomans Hall, Columbia CT. Rt. 87
Samson Occom, Connecticut Native American Preacher
Please join us on March 31 at 2:00 at Yeomans Hall where Tom Berrill will discuss how Samson Occom helped to make Columbia what it is today.
This eloquent Minister preached Christianity to thousands in New England and New York, as well as England. He was a member of the Mohegan nation and was exemplar in his loving attitude towards all including his prejudicial detractors.
Samson Occom was descended from Sachem Uncas. At the young age of 19, in 1742, he converted to Christianity while working with Reverend James Davenport.
