Gee Joshua

Gee Joshua, a Congregational minister, was born at Boston in the year 1698. He graduated at Harvard in 1717, and was early regarded as a young man of promise. He accepted an invitation to settle as colleague of Cotton Mather, and was ordained December 18, 1723, Cotton Mather giving the charge. In this relation he continued till the close of his life. Mr. Gee distinguished himself by a vigorous and earnest defense of the great Whitfieldian revival. He cordially welcomed Whitfield to Boston, adopted in his own church the measures which Whitfield recommended, and opposed the action of a convention of Congregational ministers in 1743 which protested against his doings. Mr. Gee was an invalid during the latter part of his life, and was obliged to have an assistant. He died May 22, 1748. He published A Sermon on the Death of Cotton Mather (1728): — Two Sermons on Luke 13:24 (1729): — Letter to the Rev. Nathaniel Eells, Moderator of the late Convention of Pastors at Boston (1743). — Sprague, Annals, 1:312.
