Methodist Episcopal Church of Canada - Of the one hundred and ninety-eight men whose records were given in the 1881 Cyclopedia of Methodism, five are reported to have died in the work; two as having been expelled; thirty-eight as having been located; eighty as having returned to work in connection with their Conferences in the United States; leaving seventy three connected with the Conference after the Union in 1833, every one of whom are returned as being connected with the Conference after the Union had been consumated. The Union is thus seen to have secured the unanimous vote of the Conferences concerned. Henceforth there was no organization in Canada known as the Methodist Episcopal Church, until the so-called Conference of five men was held at Cummer's meeting-house, Yonge Street, on June 25th., 1834, when the present Methodist Episcopal Church of Canada was constituted.

The five who formed said new organization, for which they adopted the old name, were...

  • John W. Byam
  • David Culp
  • Joseph Gatchell
  • Daniel Pickettt
  • John Reynolds
