Biographical or historical data
The only Methodist Church paper published in Virginia, the RICHMOND CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE had a wide circulation throughout the South. The paper was established in 1832 as the CHRISTIAN SENTINEL. In March 1836 the Virginia Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South purchased the paper, changing the title to the VIRGINIA CONFERENCE SENTINEL, and later to the RICHMOND CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE. From 1867-1874, the paper was edited by Reverend William Wallace Bennett (1821-1887), by Bennett and Reverend John James Lafferty (1837-1909) from 1874-1878, and by Lafferty from 1878-1900. In 1900, the paper merged with the BALTIMORE CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE to form the BALTIMORE AND RICHMOND CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE.
