John M. Mason of New York City to come to America and identify himself with the Associate Reformed Presbyterian church.Upon his arrival in this country he was assigned to the presbytery of Kentucky and itinerated for a while in that state and in southern Ohio.In 1804 he located at Lexington, Kentucky, taking pastoral charge of several congregations in that vicinity.The same year he was elected professor of logic and moral philosophy in Transylvania university.In 1818 he was made professor of mathematics (page 122) and natural philosophy.The teaching of mathematics was soon assigned to an assistant and he was given history in its stead.In 1819 he connected with the Presbyterian church.During his connection with the university he continued his pulpit ministrations, which were highly appreciated.Rev.
