Abstract from the Marysville Tribune
May 20, 1874 page 2 Column 3
Rev. John Gilbert Norris was born June 25, 1801 in Wilshire County, Dunhead Township, England. He came to America with his parents in the 8th year and from 1808 - 1817 he lived in Nova Scotia, near Halifax and then he came to Ohio. He was reared in the Episcopalian faith but June 25, 1822 he joined the M. E. movement. In October 1829 he left the Methodist Episcopal because they censured him for preaching against slavery. In 1830 he united with the Protestant Methodists but as they commenced to affiliate with slavery, he helped organize several churches in Ohio called Anti-Slavery Methodists. These afterwards developed into the Wesleyan connection. In the afterpart of his life he had his membership in the Congregational church in Jerome [Union County, Ohio].
