Methodist Episcopal Church Records

in the
18__? to December 1841

Jacksonville Station, Morgan County, Illinois

Transcribed by Florence Hutchison in July 1987.
“The first church's record book is not known to exist pertaining to the 1822 beginnings. James B. Corrington with his alphabetical listing of names starting on page 89, may have sponsored the recordings in this particular book to pick up names and date of past members. Or, he may have had an artistic inclination to properly identify this particular church record book in 1847.” She states “Please note that the original Methodist Church Record from which this transcription came does not include any birth, baptism or marriage data, except for an occasional death date of a favorite person, which has been noted in this index. It was the usual custom for the ministers to keep their records in “a little black book” which they carried with them, and since they moved from place to place the book was always with them. The fragile record book from which these records have been copied is not available for public use and it is doubtful whether I can carefully handle it and copy more records from 1842 on. A photocopy is in the Church's files, and a copy will be sent to the Bloomington Research Center. At least this part of the record has now become public knowledge.”
