James Satterfield spent thirty-two years a pastor, for
a part of his time at Moorfield
Church, in this [Shenango] Presbytery.
Dr. Eaton, in speak of him, says:
“He was a man of strong constitution and up to the last days of
his life he could mount a horse and ride to the house of worship.
As a preacher he was plain and practical. He attempted no flights
of fancy, but his sermons were full of the marrow of the gospel.
The reputation he has left behind him is that of sterling
integrity, unvarnished truth and unblemished purity of heart and
