Excerpt from Adoniram Judson, "the Apostle of Burmah" Any true estimate of Judson must glance at his ancestry, for as Timothy Dwight once said, let him who would be great select the right parents. It could not be said of Judson as of Jonathan Edwards, that he was the product of seven generations of preachers, but we do know that through his father, Adoniram Judson, a Congregational Minister, and through his mother, Abigail Brown, his roots went down into the strong rich soil of Puritan blood. Tall, stately and grave, ruling his house with a patriarchal severity was his father; gentle, gracious and self reliant, winning her way by love was his mother, and in this blending of strength and gentleness in his parents were laid the foundations of the well-balanced character of the future missionary.
