      Life And Travels Of Elder William Conrad



      We next will call the readers' attention again to the Church of Christ–Particular Baptists at Williamstown. I would state that this Church, during the time of the refreshing season and ingathering of the Lord's redeemed about Raysfork and Forklick Churches in 1819, 1850, and 1851, it was in a state of trouble and affliction, owing to the unguarded course of some of their members in their walk and deportment, as their record book shows. But, at length the troubles in the Church subsided, and the Church had a time of rest and frequently refreshing seasons, with some additions, as she traveled on in her pilgrim state up to the years of 1866 and 1867, since which time there has been no additions by experience and baptism, and but few received by letter and relation up to the present date, September, 1874. They remain at present in apparent peace and quiet, and generally in attendance at their regular meetings, and seem to give full attention to preaching.

      I must say that I know of no church or people whatever claiming to be the children of God, the Church of Christ, that are under so strong obligations of thanksgiving to God for such abundant supply of the ministry of the Gospel of Christ for so many years, and so favored quite soon after her organization.

      To say the least, they have been blessed with as able and faithful ministers from afar as well as near by, to labor for them in their house for regular worship, and from house to house among the brethren; and the writer feels it due not only to the Church but also due to the Lord's servants to give at least a few of their names. Among the first who came among us was Elders Joel Morehead, Thos. Threlkill, Lewis Conner, Lewis Corbin, Absalom Graves, Ficklin, Brice Fields, Wm. Glasscock, William Hume, Thos. P. Dudley–up to 1849; William Rash, Allen Emery, Robert Ricketts, Aaron Huffum of Indiana, Joel Hume, Wilson Thompson of Indiana, Wilson T. Pence of Ohio, John Parker of Ohio, Wm. S. Hickey, Jas. W. Dudley, John Clark of Virginia, Abraham L. Thurston of Indiana, John Crabtree of Ohio, E. H. Burnam of Missouri, Philip McInturf of Virginia, Samuel Williams of Ohio, often up to 1860. E. Stephens and Exhorter Beuford Rice, whose work and labor of faith and love was more singularly and wonderfully blessed in bringing into the Church the despondent sheep and lambs of any that labored among the four churches–Forklick, Raysfork, Twincreek, and Williamstown.

      We now leave the four churches for the present and attend more close to our own history.
