Cross, John

Cross, John a Presbyterian minister, styled by Dr. Brownlee "a Scottish worthy," was received as a member of the New Jersey Synod in 1732, and settled at a place called The Mountains, back of Newark. The remarkable revival in his congregation, in 1734 and 1735, is noticed in Edwards's Thoughts on Revivals. He was the minister of Baskingridge and Staten Island, and one of the first members of the New Brunswick Presbytery. He was wonderfully successful as a revivalist. Whitefield was refreshed by meeting with him, and they labored together at Baskingridge and the vicinity. Cross afterwards fell into sin, and it is not known where he died. (W.P.S.)
