Brainerd, David, missionary, was born in 1718 at Haddam, Connecticut. Licensed to preach in 1742, he went to convert the American Indians in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. The story of his labours is published in his Wonders of God amongst the Indians and Grace Displayed. He died in 1747 in the house of Jonathan Edwards, who subsequently became Brainerd's biographer.
