Some pages from the Minutes and Membership Rolls of the Church during this time are in poor condition, especially the years 1857 (late) through 1863. You can view the Church Minutes here. Please keep in mind not all pages are legible and therefore some member data will not be listed. We have used the minutes to fill in missing pieces below the best we were able to. Most entries are denoted with an asterick (*) when proven by minutes only.

If you have questions about this material, please consult the original microfilm source.

Sarah Rader
Thursday, January 10th, 1856
At Three o'clock in the morning and after a long and painful illness, Sister Sarah Rader, a member of this church, died in the full assurance of faith and hope.
She was baptised and received into the church on a --- of faith in Christ April 13th, 1851 and has maintained a pious walk, and christian character and was respected and beloved by all who knew her. She was born in Monroe County, Ill., on the 9th day of February 1809, and lived to the age of 46 years, 11 months. During her long illness she maintained an unshaken confidence in God, and firm reliance on the --- of Christ. She has left a bereaved husband, one of our deacons and seven children to mourn their loss.

Sarah Peck
October 24th, 1856
Died at her late residence , Rock Springs, in this vicinity, at 6 o'clock, Sister Sarah Peck, consort of Rev. J. M. Peck, after a long illness, which she bore with christian fortitude, patience and resignation. She was born in Greene County, State of New York, January 31st, 1789, professed to be converted and became a believer in Christ Jesus in the great revival, in Litchfield, Con. in 1807, was married to her late husband, J. M. Peck, May 8th, 1809,in the same town and state; was baptised in company of her husband by Elder Hermon Hervey, in a little mountain stream in Windham township, Greene County, New York, Sept. 15th, 1811; moved with her husband and three children to St. Louis, Mo. 1817, and into Illinois and settled at Rock Spring in 1821. She was the mother of ten children, seven of whom lived to man's estate, and six survive her.
During the whole period of her husband's ministry, she was in the highest sense, a keep-mate in all his labors. She performed in a most effective sense the duties of a wife and mohter. For weeks and months in succession during the absence of her husband, she was the head and governess of the household. To her skill, industry, patience, self-denial and prudent economy was he indebted to her for her ability and the opportunity done entirely so he could do the work where divine providence called him. Nor would it have been in his power to have done half the deeds he has performed, had not that excellent woman aided him, in the quiet and ? of domestic duties.
Her last days gave most satisfactory evidence of calm self-possession, strong faith and admission into that state, where sickness, sorrow, pain and death are felt and feared no more.
She joined this church by letter from the late Rock Spring church, on the 8th of March, 1851.
Her exact age was sixty-seven years, eight months, and twenty-four days.
