Notes for Rev. William Woodbridge Eddy
He was a son of Rev. Chauncey and Julia W. Eddy, formerly of Penn Yan, N. Y. He graduated at Williams College in 1845, from the Union Theological Seminary in 1850, and was ordained by the Presbytery of Newark, N. J., in 1851. He was married the same year, and sailed for Syria Nov. 29, 1851. They arrived at Beirut Feb. 1, 1852, and were stationed at Aleppo until 1856, at Sidon from 1857 to 1878, and at Beirut from 1878 to the time of his death. Dr. Eddy was a faithful and successful worker in the Syrian Mission, and Mrs. Eddy was in full sympathy with her husband in his years of mission life, and, as far as her health permitted, aided him by the faithful discharge of home duties, and also in the more active labors incident to her position. Under her fostering care, with the co-operation of faithful Christian teachers, the Sidon Female Seminary was established and carried forward until their removal to Beirut, when her daughter, Harriette M., succeeded to her labors at Sidon. Mrs. Eddy was a devoted mother, teaching and training her children from their earliest infancy, they having been deprived of all other educational advantages.8
