Minutes of the Four Union Church

Henry Barton Myers, Church Clerk

February 24, 1889  thru August 18, 1895,

An email message read:

The following Minutes of the Four Union Church are transcribed from a bound ledger book, handwritten by Henry Barton Myers, Church Clerk. They cover the dates between February 24, 1889 (the inception of the church) thru August 18, 1895, when apparently a new clerk was appointed.
 
 

The following Minutes of the Four Union Church are transcribed from a bound ledger book, handwritten by enry Barton Myers, Church Clerk.  They cover the dates between  February 24, 1889 (the inception of the church) thru August 18, 1895, when apparently a new clerk was appointed.

Henry’s handwriting is beautiful in form but the words are usually spelled phonetically.  After considerable time spent transcribing this ledger I am convinced that Henry also had his own form of shorthand.  Unfortunately, the actual business of many meetings was not recorded, and sometimes it is recorded that a committee was appointed to carry out a particular task but not the end result.  The recording of each meeting is opened and closed with standard wording which I have typed once  under the date of January 1, 1887; thereafter only the dates of the meetings, the term “standard minutes” and the name of the moderator and clerk will appear, unless there was a record of business conducted.   The  reading of the entire ledger is boring and repetitious, however, one is left with a sense of the faith and beliefs of our ancestors.

The ledger is remarkably preserved considering that as of this transcription it is well over 100 years old.  Somehow, this ledger and Henry’s Sunday School Bible survived a fire which destroyed the house and most of the contents of the home of his grandson, Robert Goddard, with whom Henry’s daughter, Mary Cathren Myers Goddard, resided for many years.  Robert’s daughter, Cathy Goddard Stirman, graciously loaned this ledger for transcription.

Since the Wayne County Court House was burned down (I’ve been told this was done by someone who thought the County should have a brick building) and the early Jefferson County records were destroyed by a tornado, the names and dates recorded by Henry might very well be one of the few (if not only) record of many of these church members’ existence.  We do not yet know the exact location of the Four Union Church or when or why it ceased to exist.

In the front of the ledger are two items (loose):
(1) an empty envelope addressed to Henry B Myers, Long Prairie, Ill; return address Lock Box 726, Baltimore, MD; postmarked “Baltimore, MD June 10 (?) 1885.  Is this possibly a correspondence from a relative of Henry’s?  His grandfather, Wm. Hildreth Atchison, who died 8 Oct 1865,  (to the best of my knowledge) resided all his life in Prince George’s County, MD.
(2)  a copy of the Minutes of the 21st  Annual Meeting of  the Mount Olivet Association of General Baptists, held with New Hope Church, Gallatin County, Illinois, Sept 27 and 28, 1890.  Elder Joseph Wood, Moderator, Thomas Satterfield, Clerk, Norris City, Ill.  Henry B Myres (sp) is listed as Clerk of Four Union Church and his address is Six Mile, Wayne Co, Ill.

A family mystery remains:  Henry Barton Myers, b 1844-45 married Lucinda Farmer Toney on 10 Feb 1868.  They had 5 children (William James, b 1869 d ?; Mary Cathren, b 1872 d 1958; Winnie, b 1874 d 1968; Lettie, b 1877 d 1968; Alice b 1879 d?).   Toney Family records indicate Lucinda died October 1, 1879 and Henry married Sophrona Goddard (17 Mar 1881).  Sophrona was my paternal grandfather,  John Morgan Goddard’s half-sister.  Mary Cathren, Winnie & Lettie are recorded as baptized/members of Four Union but nowhere  is the name of  Sophrona recorded;.  Did Sophrona die before July, 1886?   I  don’t think so since Henry Barton Myers date of death is recorded as April 1, 1907 and his will reads:

Wayne County Records:
 H. B. Myers died leaving his wife, Soprona E Myers and his children, Catherine Goddard, Winnie Nester, Lettie Walters, Alice Davis his worldly goods, including 5 acres in the NE corner of the W 1/2 of the NE 1/4 of SS3 Twp #S R5E 3rd PM, Wayne county, IL.  will was  probated on September 1907 (1,16)

James and Alice are also not listed.   James would have been 17 years old when Henry Barton became church clerk and may have no longer lived at home, however he appears on the 1870 Jefferson Co census and the 1880 So. Pass Twp, Union, IL.  Alice would only have been 7 and we know she lived to the age of marriage (to a man by the name of Davis).  Alice appears on the 1880 So. Pass Twp. Census.
 
 

NOTE:  When this symbol appears “~” it is an indication that letter(s) are not readable; when this symbol appears “[    ]” it is an indication that a word or words are indecipherable.  All spelling and punctuation (or lack thereof) are  Henry’s.  Without appropriate punctuation I have attempted to separate sentences.
