Reverend Andrew Manship (1823-1892) was a clergyman born in Maryland. In 1843 he was admitted to the Philadelphia conference of the Methodist Episcopal church and two years later was made a deacon and later an elder. In 1856 he was appointed tract agent but in 1863 he was again assigned to regular pastoral work. From that date until his death he became engaged in missionary work in Philadelphia and set about editing the "Home Missionary and Tract Magazine". He was author of "Thirteen Years in the Itineracy" (1856); "History of Gospel-Tents and Experience" (1884); he compiled "The Patriot's Hymn-Book" (1862) and wrote a complete review of his life, "Forty Years in the Wilderness".
