      Rev. G.E. Campbell, present pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church at Waterloo, was born in Yates county, N.Y., August 13, 1862. He was educated at Genesee Wesleyan seminary, from which he was graduated at the age of twenty-one. October 13, 1888, he was admitted upon probation to the Central New York conference. His first pastorate was Sodus Point, where he remained four years. He was ordained deacon, October 12, 1890, at Oneida, N.Y., by Bishop Joyce, and entered into full connection October 7, 1892, receiving ordination as elder at the hands of Bishop Fowler. For two years he was pastor of the M.E. church at Savannah, N.Y. In October, 1894, he became pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal church at Waterloo. The church has a membership of 300 and the Sunday school of 150. The society has just completed a beautiful new church, which is well worthy of the enlarged activity and usefulness of the congregation. Mr. Campbell is now taking a post-graduate course in the Illinois Wesleyan University.
