Birthdays on November 27

Adelaide Addison Pollard (1862 to 1934)
Presbyterian
She didn't like her name.

Birth of Adelaide Addison Pollard was born in in Bloomfield, Iowa. Her dislike for her given name, Sarah, led her to adopt the now familiar Adelaide. Raised in a Presbyterian home, she taught in several girls' schools in Chicago during the 1880s and later at Nyack Missionary Training School in New York. Even though she embraced the teachings of Divine Healing, she was plagued with frail health all her life. We remember her for the hymn "Have Thine Own Way, Lord."
