Methodism came to Tennessee on the shoulders of Edward Cox late in the 1700s. Cox had been a convert of Bishop Frances Asbury and came to Bluff City are of Tennessee with his new bride and established his home there. Family and friends were invited into his home to share the gospel and pray. Edward was not a minister, but a deeply religious man who invited preachers to come into Tennessee and stay in his home and preach the word. From these humble beginning came the Methodist Church in Tennessee. When Dr. John B. M’Ferrin wrote this history in 1869, the original was published in three volumes. These three are now printed in one volume with an index added for the first time in history. At the time of the beginning, this section of the country was included in the Western Conference and covered the nation from Illinois/Indiana down to New Orleans and west into Missouri. The history of the preachers/laity/churches are given in detail here. The index includes places as well as names of the individuals mentioned. A wonderful source of early Tennessee history.
