Jones, John M.
a Methodist Episcopal minister and native of England, was born about 1810. He was educated a Romanist in France, and while young emigrated first to Canada and then to Maryland, where he was a teacher in a Romish institution in St. George's County. He was converted to Protestantism in 1834, and two years after entered the Baltimore Conference, and "for twenty years pursued the ministerial calling, laboring day and night with quenchless zeal to rescue souls from death." He died at South Baltimore Station April 20, 1855. He "was a man of rare excellence and many virtues," of deep piety, and an able and devoted minister. — Conf. Minutes, 6, 201. (G.L.T.)
