This book was published by Eileen Gochanhour in 1984 and is copied and put online with her permission. These pages are copied as published in the original with errors in spelling, etc. In some instances certain pages or pictures were left out as the dates could not be determined if some of these people were still living. Also the Financial/Accounts/Disbursements books were omitted as they did not contain a large amount of family information. There are Menard County residents that were members of this Church, as it is located close to the Sangamon/Menard line.

As with any transcribed material, errors could have been made and one should check the original publication for accuracy.
