Cox, Gershom Plagg, a.m.

a Methodist Episcopal minister, twin brother of Melville B. Cox, was born at Hallowell, Maine, November 9, 1799. He joined the Church at the age of eighteen; was soon licensed to preach, and gave great promise of usefulness; spent several years in Belfast in business, and in 1830 joined the Maine Conference, in which, and in the New England Conference, he labored with but few intermissions as a supernumerary. for more than thirty years. In 1864 he became superannuated, which relation he sustained until his decease in Salem, November 16, 1879. Mr. Cox was a plain, earnest, instructive, Biblical preacher. In his prime he was one of the mighty preachers in New England Methodism, filling with great acceptability her chief pulpits. He was a superior pastor, spiritually minded, conscientious, and prayerful; a man of broad self-culture; was a ready and clear writer, for many years editing The Maine Wesleyan Journal; and in addition to numerous contributions to the Quarterly Review he was the author of the memoir of Melville B. Cox. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1880, page 65.
