"Rev. Charles Backus was graduated from Yale College in 1769 and after studying theology under Rev. Levi Hart, became pastor of the church in Somers, Connecticut, from 1774 until his death. He maintained a theological school in his house for a number of years and, as a result, delivered many ordination sermons, several of which were printed. Rev. Azel Backus was his nephew."
