E. Chamberlain

(1798-1855). Layperson of Middletown, Connecticut. He and his wife were among the first Seventh-day Adventists in that state who accepted the seventh-day Sabbath. He invited James and Ellen White to visit neighboring Rocky Hill, Connecticut, where the first of a series of “Sabbath Conferences” was held on Apr. 20, 1848, and where the Whites had their headquarters at the time they launched the first SDA periodical, Present Truth , in July 1849.
