Rev A. B. Koplin

Rev. A. B. Koplin, D.D., was born in Summit County, Ohio, on July 7, 1835 and died in Hellertown, Pa., March 5, 1917. He studied in Summit Academy and Heidelberg Academy, the latter at Tiffin, Ohio, and from which he was graduated in 1855. He then studied theology and was ordained May 20, 1856. He served charges at Stoyestown, Elk Lick, Pa., Defiance, Ohio, a second pastorate at Elk Lick, Catasauqua, and Hellertown, Pa. This latter charge he served nearly forty years. Franklin and Marshall College conferred upon him the degree of M. A., and Heidelberg University made him a D.D. in 1885. Dr. Koplin was in a full sense "the father" of Phoebe Deaconess and Old Folks' Home, Allentown. He was the first president of the Board of Trustees and served in that office until his death. He is survived by his widow, one son and four daughters.
