Jones, Benjamin (2)

Jones, Benjamin (2), a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Sandwich, Mass., July 28,1786; united with the Church in 1805; entered the New York Conference in 1809; was made presiding elder in 1820; was delegate to the General Conference in 1832 and in 1840; was by poor health superannuated in 1846; and died at Lincolnville, Me., July 18, 1850, aged 64. Mr. Jones was a man of more than ordinary ability and influence. His preaching was bold, sustained, and independent; dealing in truthful logic and the word of God rather than fancy, and very strong in argument. His efforts were often eloquent in the highest degree. — Conf. Min. 4, 606; Stevens, Memorials of Methodism, chap. 42. (G.L.T.)
