John Landis (b. 1805), raised Lutheran on a farm near Harrisburg, Pa., he first learned the printer's trade as an apprentice with John Wyeth in Harrisburg, 1822. He began his career as a painter, painting portraits including one of Zachary Taylor. He later abandoned portrait painting for historical and Biblical subjects. He also wrote about 200 hymns. "In person John Landis was of ordinary height and weight, with pale, swarthy complexion, and dark, melancholy eyes. He was quiet and unoffending, never profane in his language, and abstained from drink and tobacco. In brief, he was a religious fanatic of the Dunker type, and wore a broadbrim hat, long surtout, long hair and beard and looked sanctimonious. He was alive in 1851, but the date of his death, which is said to have occurred in an almshouse, is unknown."--Mary N.
