Clelland, Robert

Scottish-born Robert Clelland was the school master at Mohegan (1752-1764), appointed by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in New England.  His differences and disputes with Samson Occom caused the Indian minister to consider him incompetent and racially-biased.  The missionary society replaced him in 1764 with William Hubbard.  He lived at least into the year 1775.
