Elkanah Kelsey Dare (1782-1826) was born in New Jersey but moved to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania sometime before 1818. He was a Methodist minister and very possibly the music editor for John Wyeth’s Repository of Sacred Music, Part Second (1813), a shaped-note collection that includes more than a dozen of his tunes.
