Sketches of the most prominent pioneer preachers in the circuit have been furnished in former chapters of this history.  There are others however who deserve more than a passing notice.  John C. Tackaberry was stationed here in 1831.  He was a native of Wexford, Ireland.  His preaching was fervent, pungent and often pathetic.  He particularly excelled in "doctrinal  discourses."  He wrote his sermons with great care but preached without notes.  It was his habit to cite authorities sacred or secular, and he was often called "Book, Chapter, and Verse," from his method of quoting Scripture in his sermons.  Many others spoke of him as "a walking concordance" and it is affirmed he knew the New Testament by heart.  He was a man of slender build, taller than average, of light complexion and pleasing countenance.  In social intercourse he was bright.  Few excelled
him in wit and repartee but his language was always chaste.  Rev. W. H. Dykeman of New York brother of Dykeman the school-master says of Mr. Tackaberry, "I tested his friendship for nearly twenty years and I never knew a man to show more unswerving fidelity to his friends in storm and sunshine." He died in New York, May 9, 1852, aged 55 years.  His last words were "In the Word of God is my trust, his promises are my support."  Rev. David Poor, who traveled this circuit with Mr. Tackaberry, is still living.
