Merritt E. Cornell (February 26, 1827 – November 2, 1893) was an energetic Seventh-day Adventist minister,[1] who is best known as an early believer of the advent teaching and the Sabbath [2] along with the Three Angels' Message, and he dedicated his life to preaching it. He, along with Joseph Bates and Joseph H. Waggoner, were together in the Committee going over spiritual gifts for the 1855 Seventh-Day Adventist conference at Battle Creek, which became a significant reason for accepting the prophetic gift of Ellen White.[3]


He was a Millerite minister who was converted in 1852 with his family by Joseph Bates in Michigan, and was a pioneer evangelist who work in Maine to the Pacific Coast.[4] He joined J. N. Loughborough preaching the third angel’s message and held the first Sabbatarian Adventist tent meetings ever conducted. His wife worked with him and helped by staying after a tent meeting series closed to help potential converts make a decision. He along with J. N. Loughborough held the first Seventh-day Adventist tent meetings in San Francisco and also worked with D. M. Canright in Oakland, California. He met James and Ellen White in 1853 when they came to Michigan, writing a report on spiritual gifts that went to the 1855 conference in Battle Creek that led to the acceptance of Ellen White’s prophetic gift. He worked with James White, J. H. Waggoner, D. M. Canright, and others and traveled from Maine to California preaching the Seventh-day Adventist message. He wrote articles and news items from experiences for the Review and Herald. He was an early supporter of the prophetic gift, which he held was manifested in visions received by Ellen White. In 1863 he held the funeral service for Henry White, the son of James and Ellen White. He worked from 1876 to 1889 and Ellen White wrote of him that he was "a deeply repenting man, humbled in the dust."

He died of an internal hemorrhage in Battle Creek, Michigan, on November 2, 1893. 2000 people are recorded to have attended his memorial service the following Sabbath.[5]
