NEW YORK a THE CHURCH RECORD PUBLISHING CO 1897. This page in the original text is blank. PREFACE. With the exception of only two or three, the interest- ing histories of the churches which are here presented have been prepared by their respective pastors expressly for this book. As to the arrangement of the subject mat- ter, we have placed the denominations in alphabetical order. We sincerely regret the inability to secure the two or three photographs that are omitted, but it is no fault of the publishers. We trust that any slight errors may be generously overlooked, since they are not due to any lack of pains- taking care. THE PUBLISHERS. INTRODUCrION. This book is something entirely new for Lexington. Although many churches publish occasionally, each for itself, a manual or directory, giving some of these facts for the use of their own members, yet the combining of all these together so that the members of all the Protest- ant bodies may readily learn about one another is an entirely new plan and will prove to be a great success. Aside from the great convenience of such a volume there are higher ends to be secured. We are members, in all these churches, of one another; our aims are common; our methods vary and we can learn much from each other. There is also great practical value to a city, grow- ing as this does, in holding up the beginning of things and the course of history in the churches. The stranger can inform himself in a few moments as to the story of the church into which he has come from another com- munity. FIRST BAPTIST CHULICH. Historical Sketch. BY Rav. W. M. PRATT, D. D. The present First Baptist Church of Lexington was constituted in I817. George W. Ranck, in his History of Lexington, page 19, gives the following account: "In that year (i817), on the 4th of January, a number of its (Town Fork) scaftered members assembled and re- organized the church, with the assistance of Elders Toler, Jacob Creath, sen., and Jeremiah Vardeman; Berry Stout being moderator and Samuel Ayers, clerk." On the church list of rembers kalbqn -that time, we find, among others; tl1P.nPr of f j4itr tter, R. Higgins, William C. Wafidld, Walter'Wagil'e'ld, W. H. Richardson, William Stonle 'MattheW Wktef,) Williaim, Jayne, Edward Payne, J. a ,Mortory, J C .C. iiaaseni, Gabtiel Tandy, Thomas Lewis, and WiiJiatV Poindexter. The congre- gation met at this4 tinei ccb pe of Transylvania University, but iniffiediYd 9tbps' ere' taken to build a new house of worship. It was completed and occupied in October, i8i9, and located on North Mill street, op- posite the College Lawn. It was a substantial two-story, provided with galleries. Immediately after re-organization of the church, Dr. James Fishback, who had just been ordained to the Bap- tist ministry, was called to the pastorate at a salary of 4o0 per year, a sum considered at that time quite extra- ordinary for a preacher's services. His pastorate ex- tended from i817 to i826. A quaint feature of the day was the custom, kept up for a long time, of the Mill Street Church, of giving out hymns line after line. Mr. Ranck furthermore states respecting this first pastor of the church: "In i826 the influence of the religious movement, headed by Barton Stone and Alexander Campbell, caused the introduction of a resolution into the First Baptist Church to change its name to 'the Church of Christ,' which was advocated and opposed by the two parties which had then formed in the church. After a RTHM CHURCH RECORD. long discussion, the party favoring the resolution 'swarmed out' under the leadership of Dr. Fishback, and organized the 'Church of Christ,' and worshiped in a building now known as the station, an office on Short street between Upper and Limestone. This church was eventually dissolved, many of the congregation going back to the First Baptist Church, and the remainder con- FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH. nected themselves with the body now called the 'Chris- tian Church."' The following is a list of succeeding pastors of the First Baptist Church to the present time: Second Pastor-Elder Jeremiah Vardeman, from i827 to i830, assisted by J. Creath, Jr., in i828 and i829. He was a very eloquent and effective preacher and had greater success in revivals than any other minister of his day. In i834 and i835 Elder W. C. Buck preached for the church once a month. An i83i J. B. Smith is mentioned as preaching for the church one year. B FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH. In i832 to i835 Elder R. T. Dillard was in charge of the church. In 1835 to i839 Elder Silas M. Noel was pastor. He died May 5, i839. He was succeeded by Dr. B. P. Drake, a member of the church, a physician, and set apart to the ministry of the church. In i840 Rev. William F. Broaddus, of Virginia, was called to the pastorate at a salary of 1,500 per year, with the privilege of conducting a young ladies' school. Re continued in the pastorate until I845, when he resigned. He was a very able minister in the pulpit and an excellent teacher. In i845 Rev. W. M. Pratt, D. D., was unanimously invited to take charge of the church for one year, at a salary of 700. So, according to contract, he returned, after a tour through Virginia, and commenced his pastorate August I, 1845, expecting to close up and go back at the end of a year. The church sent a committee each year for seventeen years, to renew the call. The people in this region know whether his labors during this long pastorate were a suc- cess or a failure. He has, preached during the pastorate three thousand two hundred and seventy-one sermons; baptized into the fellowship of the church three hundred and eighty-six; two hundred and seven were received by letter, and eighty by relation and restoration, making six hundred and seventy-three additions. Number of members in i845 two hundred and sixty-nine; number in i863 three hundred and twenty-six. The church con- tinued in great harmony during this period, with very little disturbance. During the period of the civil war it required great prudence to steer the ship of Zion through the troubled waters, but she got through safe and sound. In the spring of i853 the church resolved to erect a new house of worship, and secured a lot with a good dwelling on Mill street, and broke ground for founda- tion the rst of April. On the i9th of November, i854, the last services were held in the old meeting house which had been occupied for over thirty years, and the church used the basement of the new church on December 3d, following. The house. was not completed for dedication until August I9, i855, when Drs. S. W.-Lynd and R. T. Dillard preached on the occasion to a full house at II a. m. and 4 p. m. The cost of the house was i5,ooo. We raised by subscription 8,296, by collection and subscrip- tion on day of dedication 796.73, and the contractors al- 7 THE CHURCH RECORD. lowed us 2,500 for material of old house, leaving a debt of i io.86 which was subsequently discharged. The church prospered in this new and beautiful house, when, on the night of January 3, I859, it was burned to the ground. A burning shingle from a stable on fire, on the opposite side of the street, was blown. into the cupola and the firemen had not the appliances to reach and put out the fire. The pastor was returning from a trip to Illinois and at Cincinnati was informed of the sad disaster. On reaching Lexington he found his church in great distress on account of the disaster, and it was a number of months before the members could agree upon rebuilding as to the location. A portion was favorable to rebuilding upon the same ground, others regarded the "Old" Baptist grave yard a better place, because of the spacious ground. It wag finally agreed that the contribution should decide the matter. This stimulated activitv and liberal subscription. More money was subscribed for the grave yard and the others acquiesced. It was not till January i, i86o, one year after the fire, the basement was fitted up for worship, and a year later before the auditorium was completed. Dr. D. R Campbell, of Georgetown, and Rev. George C. Lor- rimer were with us and preached on the occasion. Pre- vious to this the church worshiped sometimes in the old city hall and in the theater and we were all glad to be settled in our new home. About the first of i863 the pastor resigned his charge, although the annual call was renewed. The reason was this: For a number of years the board of the general association had been located in Lexington, and he had acted as financial secretary of all branches of its work, viz., state, foreign and domestic missions, Sunday-school and colportage, and the duties were so numerous and such a tax on his time he could not do justice to his church as a pastor or to himself under the heavy responsibility resting upon him. The prosperity of the church demanded the whole time of her minister. He advised the church to call Rev. Wm. H. Felix, a young man full of promise of usefulness, and well equipped by education for the position. The church acted upon his suggestion, and on the 6th of September, i863, Rev. Felix, having accepted the invitation of the church, entered upon the pastorate and continued until May, i869, when he resigned and settled as pastor of the church at Covington, Kv. During this period of six years the church was increased to four hundred and twenty-five membership. He was much beloved bv his 8 FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH. church and respected by the community. He was suc- ceeded by Elder George Hunt, who was pastor for about four years-from i869 to i873. Brother Hunt was fol- lowed by L. B. Woolfolk, who continued in the office be- tween four and five years, and he was followed by Elder Lansing Burrows. After him came Elder J. C. Hiden, who was pastor from i884 to I887. In i887 Elder A'. H. Felix was called to the pastorate the second time, and is now closing the tenth year of the second pastorate. When he came to the church in June, i887, there were four hundred and twenty-five members, now there are over nine hundred, having himself received between six and seven hundred into the church. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. Rev. William H. Felix, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Lexington, was born in Martinsville, Wood- ford county', Kv., October 6, i838. He remained on his father's farm until he was sixteen years of age. In i855 he entered Georgetown College and was graduated from that institution in i86o. He then took charge of a Baptist church at Newcastle, Henrv county, Ky. Hle was ordained by Dr. Duncan R. Camp- bell, president of Georgetown College. During his first ministry he read law and was admitted to the bar in i862 and practiced law one year in Shelbyville, Ky. In i863, Mr. Felix was called to take charge of the First Baptist Church of Lexington, Ky., and served until i869, when he received a call from the Pilgrim Baptist Church of New York City, and was pastor of that church for one year. In i870 he accepted a call to the Fitst Baptist Church of Covington, where he remained for fourteen years and resigned in I884. For two years thereafter he served countrv churches in order to regain his health. When he came to Lexington in I887 the church had four hundred and twenty-five members; after his nine vears of labor the congregation has grown to over a thousand members. Mr. Felix was married in i86i to Miss Mattie Hav- don, daughter of Thomas Havdon, of Louisville, Ks'. 10 THE CHURCH RECORD. She died in i871, leaving four children. Mr. Felix was married the second time in i875 and by this union one son and one daughter were born. There are few men in the ministry whose labors have produced a greater portion of good. Wherever he is known he is greatly loved and respected. REV. W. H FELIX. 1Q FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH. List of Members. Allender, W. E. Allender, Mrs. Allen. Allender, Mrs. S. A. Allender, Miss Bettie.

The Fifth Street Baptist Church of Lexington was organized a regular Baptist church on the evening of January I5, 1892. There had been a Sunday-school in the chapel in which the organization was effected, for several years conducted as a mission from the First Bap- tist Church. The membership numbered but six on the evening of its beginning. For two weeks the church had its pulpit supplied by students of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville and on the first Sun- day in February called to its pastorate Rev. Otis Hugh- son, who was then a student in the seminary. For two vears and a half the only place of worship was the little frame chapel that had been built for Sunday-school pur- poses. In the middle of the summer of i893, in con- junction with the First Church, a new building was be- gun, but on account of the serious depression in business and financial matters the building was only half finished. It remained in this condition for over a year. On the i8th of November, i894, the new home was dedicated by Rev. W. H. Felix, D. D., pastor of the First Baptist Church and humanly speaking the founder of the new organization. The membership grew gradually, reaching at the fifth anniversary the number of two hundred. It is proper to mention that the property consisting of the new church building and the lot of ground upon which it stands, valued at 7,000, was a present from the First Baptist Church, except about I,500, which the Fifth Street Church paid in constructing or improving the building. The church has been from the beginning thoroughly united, vigorously resisting any effort to gen- erate contention and strife and promptly dismissing those who persisted in disturbing her peace and concord.

Otis Hughson was born near Charlottesville, Virginia, January 29, i863. His childhood and youth were spent on the farm, receiving such education as was furnished by the coinmon public schools, which was very meager at that tinfe, rarely reaching over five months in the year. At the age of seventeen, having learned teleg- raphy, he was employed by various telegraph and rail- road companies as telegraph operator, finally reaching the office of train dispatcher for the Chesapeake Ohio Rail- road situated at Richmond, Virginia, and having charge of the transportation department over the portion of road from Charlottesville to Old Point. At twenty-two years of age he united with the Leigh Street Baptist Cherch of Richmond, Virginia, and in September, I885, having re- signed his position of dispatcher, entered Richmond Col- lege to begin his collegiate course. Three years were spent there, graduating in various schools. In the autumn of i888 he began his university studies at the University of Virginia. At this institution he graduated in chemistry, moral philosophy, natural philosophy, his- torical science and received proficiencies in several special departments that did not lead to diplomas. After three years at the university he went in i89i to the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, remaining only one ses- sion, during which time he graduated in five schools, New Testament, Interpretation, Svstematic Theology, Pas- toral Theology, Church Government and Biblical Introduction. While a student there he was called to the Fifth Street Baptist Church in Lexington, where he still labors. During his work as a stud- 23 --> 24 THE CHURCH RECORD. ent at the University of Virginia he supplied a country field in Amherst county, fifty miles from the university. He is the fifth child in a family of eleven children. At this writing his father and mother and all REV OTIS HUGHSON. the eleven children are living, never having had a death in the immediate family, all the children having been suc- cessfully reared to manhood and womanhood In i893, November i6th, he was united in marriage to Miss Elsie Griggs, a member of his charge in Lexington.

Having no build- ing of their own, held their meetings in the Masonic Hall, the First Baptist Church and other places. On May i9, i875, the Melodeon Hall was rented in which to hold UPPER-STREET BAPTIST CHURCH. their meetings. Sept. 8, i875, Rev. J. M. Frost accepted a call to the pastorate, being their first pastor. During his four years' charge he built up the church wonderfully and was greatly beloved by all. On December i, i875, a lot was purchased on the (28) UPPER-STREET BAPTIST CHURCH. corner oi Church and Upper streets, on which to build a meeting house. On October 14, i877, the present building was dedicated. Rev. J. P. Boyce preached the dedication sermon. Mr. Frost was succeeded as pastor by Rev. J. J. Taylor, who remained with the church for seven years and was a most acceptable pastor in evenr way. He now has charge of one of the largest churches in Montgomery, Ala. The next pastor called to this church was Rev. F. B. Raymond, who had charge for three years and was followed by Rev. W. S. Splawn, who after serving three years accepted a call to a church in Texas. The present pastor, Rev. J. H. Boyet, came next and is doing great good by his untiring labors for the upbuilding of his church. On February i8, i875, this church was christened the "Pilgrim Baptist Church," but on July 4, i877, it was changed to the "Upper Street Baptist Church" and still bears that name. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. John H. Boyet, D. D.. pastor of Upper Street Baptist Church, was born in Tipton county, Tenn., August iI, I847, and moved with his parents to Lamar county, Texas, in i856. He grew to manhood with only the educational advantages afforded in the common sum- mer schools of the country and human nature as he saw it among the Westerners and the Indians along the border. He was familiar with the lasso, the broncho, the red man and all the dangers to body and soul incident to life in such surroundings. He served in the Confederate cavalry the last year of the war, and knew the Indian as a soldier, a scout and a spy. When the war was over, and the awful experiences of a few years in which the country was filled with murderers and highwaymen had their day, and came to grief, many of them, at the hands of young Confederates who longed for peace and rest from strife, he settled down to work and study with a thirst for knowledge which drank at every fountain opened to him, until he literally carved out for himself a future. He was ordained to the ministry in i873, and from that time gave himself exclusively to preaching and THE CHURCH RECORr. further preparation for his life work. He spent a time in thle Southern Theological Seminary at Louisville, and was in a private way a pupil of Dr. John MA. Broadus afterward. Availing himself of the benefits of a strong personal friendship of some of the great men of his de- nomination he was able to make good, in a large measure, what he lacked of early advantages. He preached all over Texas (luring a period of seventeen years and saw over six thousand people converted, in the meantime JOHN IH. BOYET. serving as pastor at Paris, Sulphur Springs and Honey Grove, all important points. He was often in demand at college commencements an(l received the degree of D.I).in 1887 from the KeechiCollege,La. He was one of the founders of the "Texas Baptist Standard," which now has the largest circulation of any Baptist paper in the South. He has also written several small books and has published many sermons and other articles in the lead- ing church periodicals. In i890 _Mr. Bovet became pastor of the First Church of Owensboro, Kv., where his success was conspicuous until failing health influenced him to go South for a time, when for eighteen months he did a remarkable work at 30 UPPER-STREXT BAPTIST CHURCH. Vicksburg, Miss., acting at the same time as associate editor of the "Baptist Layman" in that state. Since leaving Texas in i890, he has held great revival meetings in Louisville, Memphis, Nashville, Little Rock, Natchez and New Orleans, besides many smaller cities North and South. Dr. Boyet became pastor of the Upper Street Church June I, i895, and has in twenty months increased the membership from less than three hundred and fifty to more than five hundred. His congregations always fill the house and there are accessions and baptisms almost every Lord's day. He teaches a large class, preaches twice on Sunday and attends three other night meetings through the week. Besides his work as pastor Dr. Boyet manages to hold a ten days' meeting every two months at some place in the state. He also appears often on the platform, and has won for himself a name as a popular lecturer. He is frequently on the programme of National gatherings and was for several vears one of the board of managers of the Baptist Young Peoples Union of America. List of Members. Appleton, J. W.

W. 39 BROADWAY CHRISTIAN CHURCH. Historical Sketch. By ELDER J. W. MCGARVEY. This church came into existence as a branch from the church then meeting in the old house near Phoenix Hotel, on Main street. The latter had enjoyed a very rapid growth from the year i865 till the year i869, when the audiences became too large for their house of worship, and a separate meeting for such as saw fit to attend it was organized in the old opera house, corner of Mlain and Broadway, January I, 1870. In the spring of i870, the old Presbyterian house of worship on the corner of Broad- way and Second streets was purchas.ed for the accommo- dation of this meeting, and was first occupied by it on May ist of that year. On June 25th of the year i871, it was thought best by the whole church to organize those meeting there into an independent church. This or- ganization was effected on Lord's day, Tulv i6th, by the enrollment, with the consent of the mother church, of all who chose to enter into it. The whole number then enrolled was one hundred and twenty-eight. J. W. MIcGarvev, who had been already selected by the undivided church to preach in that house every Lord's day, was continued in that service, and the church was fully organized by the election and ordination of elders and deacons the same year. The elders first appointed were W. B. Emmal, Dr. I. N. Hodgen, Dr. R. A. Gibney, and J. W. McGarvey; the deacons, Robert McMichael, J. M. Hocker, I. Y. Smith, J. L. Shivel, D. D. Laudeman, J. P. Metcalf, J. B. Wallace and James Frost. J. W. McGarvey was both the preacher for this young congregation and professor of sacred history in the Col- lege of the Bible; and he continued this double service until the close of the year i88i, when the church had so grown in numbers that the time which could be spared from his professorship was inadequate to the demands of the church work. He consequently resigned, and John S. (40) 41 BROADWAY CHRISTIAN CHURCH. Shouse, of Midway, Ky., was chosen to take his place. At this time the number of members was about three hundred and fifty, and these, together with the boarding pupils of Hamilton Female College, and many students of the College of the Bible and Kentucky University who were regular attendants, frequently crowded the house of worship. Under the services of J. S. Shouse this growth continued until it became necessary to provide more seating capacity for the large congregations. All prac- ticable plans for enlarging the old house were considered BROADWAY CHRISrIAN CHURCH. and found unsatisfactory, so it was finally decided to build a new one. Search was made for a suitable lot in the vicinity, but none that could be purchased was found, and it became necessary to tear down the old building and erect the new one on the old site. J. S. Shouse under- took to secure the necessary subscriptions of money, and had scarcely succeeded when he was induced to resign his position and accept the work of soliciting for an in- crease of the endowment of Kentuckv University. His term of service closed with the year i890. In this crisis, 0. A. Bartholomew, of St. Louis, Mo., was induced to serve the church for one year in the double capacity of J THE CHURCH RECORD. regular preacher and architect of the new building. The new house of worship and a parsonage were constructed under his supervision and according to plans and speci- fications drawn up by him. On the first Lord's day of September, i89i, the new house, with a seating capacity of about one thousand, was formally set apart for public worship to the great delight of the congregation, which had for six months worshiped in the chapel of the university. The cost of the two buildings was about 22,000. But previous to this, in the year i888, for the purpose of relieving the overcrowded condition of its audiences, as also for the sake of more efficient evangelizing in the city, the church had bought a lot on Chestnut street, and erected a house of worship on it at a cost of about 6,500. Here services were maintained regularly by members of the congregation, who were preachers, with the as- sistance of some of the elders and deacons, until the month of December, i89i, when an independent church was organized there. This church being financially weak at first, the mother church continued to help it finan- cially for several years. At the close of the engagement with 0. A. Bartholo- mew, Mark Collis, who had been for six years Professor of English Language and Literature in Kentucky Uni- versity, was induced to resign that work and serve the church, which he has continued to do until the time of this writing. The increase of membership which has marked the history of the church from its beginning has not been interrupted and the congregation now numbers about nine hundred members, besides about two hundred who have moved away from the city without changing their church membership. Throughout the history of this church it has borne a part in the benevolent work of the city of Lexington, and has contributed liberally to the support of the gospel in the state of Kentucky, in the more needy parts of our whole country, and among the heathen. Its members have manifested an interest in the poor and the sinning in every part of the world. No class or race of men are be- yond the reach of their sympathy, and this largely ac- counts, no doubt, for the abundant blessings which God has bestowed upon the church. Her devotion to the faith and practice of the primitive church, for the defense and maintenance of which she has ever stood, knows no abatement, and she has confidence that in the years to 42 BROADWAY CHRISTIAN CHURCH. come there is a still larger work for her to do than all that she has hitherto accomplished. Her officers now con- sist of five elders and seventeen deacons. She has an at- tendance every Lord's day which nearly fills her large auditorium; her Sunday-school is large and growing; her prayer-meeting is largely attended; and her young people, in their special lines of work, are active and zealous. She has every reason to thank God and take courage. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. Mark Collis, the minister of the Broadwav Christian Church, was born in London, England, September 2I, i85I. - When he was three years old his parents emigrated to South Australia and established themselves in the city of Adelaide. There he was brought up and lived till he was twenty-two years of age. When fifteen years old he obtained employment in a large mercantile house, con- tinuing this pursuit up to the time of his majority, at which time his health failing him he withdrew from bus- iness and sought by a change of location and occupation for the strength which he had lost. For about a year, on the farm of a brother-in-law, he followed agriculture more as a recreation than as a serious business. At the age of eighteen he had become a member of the Christian church, from which time he had been possessed with a desire to preach the gospel and had frequently taken part in the public services of the congregation. His en- forced retirement from business caused him to think more seriously of the question of whether he ought to de- vote his time and talents to mercantile pursuits or to the work of the ministrv. At last he determined to come to Kentucky University to spend a year or two, after which he hoped to be able to enter upon the great work of pro- claiming Christ to the people. So in i874 he bade fare- well to his parents and friends in Australia and came to America, expecting to see them all again in two or three years. He entered the Bible College of Kentucky Uni- versity in the fall of 1874, and in 1878 graduated in the first class of the present College of the Bible, delivering the valedictory upon that occasion. After graduating in this college he prosecuted his studies in the College of THE CHURCH RECORD. Arts, graduating in that institution in i88i, and deliver- ing the Latin salutatory. While in college he employed almost every Sundav in preaching, most of this time be- ing divided between the congregations of Antioch and Berea, in Fayette countv. His vacations were largely taken up with protracted meeting work. The same month that he graduated lie married Miss Mary Gibney, TMARK COLLIS. of Lexington, and that fall he accepted a call to the church at Midway, Kv., where he labored for four years. During the last year of his ministry there he made a visit to his father and friends in Australia, his mother having died while he was in college. Soon after his return he was invited to take the chair of English Language and Literature in Kentucky University; this he accepted, re- luctantly giving up the work at Midway, which had proved very delightful to him. For six years he filled- that position, when, the new Broadway Christian Church 44 BROADWAY CHRISTIAN CHURCH. being completed, the congregation unanimously called him to serve it as its preacher, which place he has been filling ever since, having begun his sixth year of service with them in January of this year. Mr. Collis has many cares apart from his duties as the minister of this large church. He is the president of the Board of Education of the city of Lexington, the president of the Board of Trustees of the Kentucky Female Orphan School, secre- tary of the Board of Trustees of Hamilton Female Col- lege, secretary of the Board of Trustees of the College of the Bible, and a member of the Board of Curators of Kentucky University. He is president this year of the Kentucky Christian Missionary Society. List of Members. Adams, W. W., Leland Annex. Adams, Mrs. C., Leland Annex. Adams, Robt. C., i46 W. Short street.

In the latter part of i831, a little band of nine faith- ful and devout Christians, pleading for the "faith once de- livered to the saints," and insisting upon a return to primitive Christianity, began holding meetings every Sunday in their private houses for the purpose of attend- ance upon the Lord's Supper, the singing of hymns, prayer and exhortation. These nine believers, now all save one gone to their last reward, were William Poin- dexter and wife, Thomas Rogers and wife, Mrs. T. S. Bell, Mrs. Joseph Ficklen, James Schooley, William Van- pelt, and his son William Vanpelt, Jr. These meetings continued through the year i832. God greatly blessed them, for the membership gradually increased until early in i833 the little band had grown to such an extent that it was deemed advisableto secure a permanent place for the meetings and to call a minister. Accordingly a room on Spring street, that had been a chair factory, was rented from William Challen, father of James Challen, and here the congregation was domiciled and organized, James Challen being called to serve as minister. The interior of the old factory was arranged as best they could. It is difficult for one in our day and gener- ation to conceive of the rudeness of the furniture of that old room, which the Disciples then doubtless took great pride in. Some old chairs were donated by the members for the pulpit and chancel, while the seats proper con- sisted of some clumsily constructed benches, without backs. No carpet covered the floor, nor was the light diffused by cathedral glass. They did not exactly "build a pulpit of wood," but they secured a large dry goods box, covered it with cotton, and that served as a reading desk. Amid these rude surroundings our forefathers served God, and who is there to say they were not as happy then as those of us who sit in Central Church and enjoy its blessings to-day It is not probable that they (66) CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH. ever complained of the minister's lengthy sermons, or hurried the service to get home in time for early Sunday dinner. But amid the sweetness of this their first meeting place, there was some bitterness. The early church in the CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH. days of Peter and Paul was persecuted, and this early church was persecuted. Not to such an extent, it is true, but persecuted nevertheless. Disagreeable epithets and ugly names were applied to them. They were called "water dogs," "baptized infidels," "Campbellites," etc. A caricature was prepared representing a huge camel with two large humps upon its back, labeled "Alexander Campbell," and beneath this was printed the couplet: "Ho, all ye sons and daughters, Here's salvation in the waters." 67 THE CHURCH RECORD. But in spite of all this persecution and calumny they stood firm, and grew in spirit and numbers. In i834, the congregation had outgrown the old chair factory, and the old Oldham cotton factory, that stood on North Broad- way, where the Skillman residence now stands, was rented. This was arranged better than was the chair factory, and here services were held for several years, until a union took place between them and the so-called 'Stoneites," a body of Christians holding tothe same faith, that had sprung up in the meantime. The "Stbneites" had erected a brick building at the corner of Mill and High streets. The day this union was consummated was a notable one, and it is greatly to be regretted that the exact day has not come down to us. The services doubt- less lasted all day, among the venerable ministers taking part being Barton W. Stone, J. T. Johnson, Thomas M. Allen, John Smith, Frank Palmer, William Morton, Thomas Smith, Jacob Creath, Sr. The union was cause for great rejoicing. The congregation was strengthened, and took its place in the city as an "established church." Allen Kendrick was the minister of the united forces, and in the autumn of i840 he held the first protracted meeting, lasting two months and adding one hundred and forty- eight to the church. This addition increased the mem- bership to such an extent that the High street building was found too small and a movement was set on foot that resulted in the building of the old Main Street Church. The High street property was traded for the lot and after some little difficulty the building was completed early in the year i843. It was dedicated in the spring, President James Shannon preaching the sermon. Shortly after the dedication the celebrated Campbell-Rice debate, in which Henry Clay acted as chairman, was held in the building, lasting for eighteen days. William McChesney suc- ceeded Allen Kendrick as minister, and he in turn was succeeded by Samuel Church. A. L. Robbins succeeded Church, and A. L. Jones, T. G. Tompkins, James Hen- shall and the venerable John I. Rogers followed. In i86o W. H. Hopson was called and served one year until i86i, when J. W. McGarvey was called. During the war the church had many vicissitudes. The building was seized and used as a hospital by both the Federal and Confederate troops, but at the close of the war the church was stronger than ever, and found it necessary to estab- lish another congregation in the city, and Broadway Church was organized with a membership of one hun- 68 CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH. dred and twenty-six. L. B. Wilkes was called as min- ister in i868, and was succeeded in i872 by Moses E. Lord. T. N. Arnold followed in i873; C. K. Marshall in i874; W. H. Hopson was recalled in i878, and was suc- ceeded by W. F. Cowden in i88i. R. T. Mathews came in i885 and served faithfully and well for ten years, he being the last to serve in the old building. For fifty years the congregation worshiped God in this building. Children grew up in the church and their children in turn grew up. Year by year God prospered the congrega- tion. Year by year the membership grew in numbers; year by year came the children from the Sunday-school to the church, and in after years their children came from the Sunday-school. In all these years the membership grew not only in numbers, but in grace and in love for one another. But the building that had served them so well, that had witnessed so many happy marriages and sad funerals, whose walls had echoed with the voices of so many godly men and women, began to decay, and the members began to talk of a new house or of remodeling the old one. In the latter part of i89i the movement for the erection of a new house of worship began to assume definite shape, and on the evening of the 7th of December of that year, after public announcement from the pulpit on the two Sundays preceding, and the mailing of a postal card to each member, the congregation assembled "for the purpose of considering and finally determining the question whether we would remodel the present house of worship, or buy and build elsewhere." This meeting, presided over by Alex McClintock, one of the elders of the church, was a large and representative one, and each member present felt the importance of the occasion. After considerable discussion, it was determined, almost unanimously, to "buy and build elsewhere." A commit- tee consisting of three members from each of the then wards of the city, was appointed, charged with the duty of selecting a suitable location, and to report to a sub- sequent meeting of the congregation. This committee, after careful deliberation, selected the lot known as the old Masonic property, at the corner of Short and Walnut streets, which was forthwith purchased, and plans for the new building drawn, submitted to the congregation and accepted. It was not without some difficulty that a purchaser for the old property was found, but these difficulties were 69 THE CHURCH RECORD. overcome by the committee of twelve, which was con- tinued as a building committee for the new house, and on the 7th of May, i893, the cornerstone was laid with ap- propriate ceremonies. The work on the building pro- ceeded as rapidly as possible under the circumstances. It was not, however, until July, 1894, that the work was completed. On the 22d of that month the dedicatory services were held, the sermon proper being delivered by the minister, R. T. Mathews, who had worked so faith- fully for the completion of the building. Before the finishing touches had been put upon the new house, the minister, MIr. Mathews, -was called to a field of larger usefulness, accepting in September, I894, a chair in the Bible College of Drake University. He was succeeded in January, i89 5, by the present minister, I. J. Spencer, who has endeared himself to every mem- ber of the congregation. Under his faithful ministry the work of the church is constantly growing in useful- ness, the missionary spirit continually enlarging and spreading, while the membership is gradually increasing Sunday by Sunday. In September, J896, the church began the work of establishing a mission in South Lexington, purchasing a lot at the corner of Mill and Cedar streets, upon which it is hoped to erect during i897 a comfortable house of worship. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. I. J. Spencer, the subject of this sketch, was born in Belmont county, Ohio, and was reared on a farm. At the age of twelve the management of the farm devolved upon him and his widowed mother, whose husband and two sons had died during the civil war. He was suc- cessful in business, and when, eight vears later, he had decided to enter college and prepare for the ministry, a wealthy and wordly old uncle wept to think that so good a farmer was soon to degenerate into a preacher. Mr. Spencer had been a life-long student, had attended Hillsdale College, in Michigan, before making up his mind to studv for the ministry, and had also taught two sessions in the public school. The ministry was chosen after much prayerful deliberation and in the face of 70 CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH. numerous wordly interests. He had joined the Mletho- dist Episcopal church when a boy, but having been con- vinced that nothing except immersion answered to the act of baptism and that only believers were the scriptural subjects of the ordinance, he left the Methodist church, I. J. SPENCER. united with the Disciples of Christ, and determined to enter Bethany College, from which he graduated in i875 as the valedictorian of his class. His first regular service as a minister was devoted to the church in Bellaire, Ohio, where in his first protracted meeting fifty-five persons confessed Christ and were baptized. The church grew under his ministry for five - 71 THE CHURCH RECORD. years, after which he left it to accept a call to the First Christian Church of Baltimore. While in Baltimore, in 1878, he married Miss Louise Pendleton, a daughter of Dr. Philip B. Pendleton, of Louisa county, Virginia, and a niece of Dr. W. K. Pendleton, then president of Beth- any College. Mr. Spencer's health failed in Baltimore, after two years, and he went South, spending two years in lighter labors in Augusta, Georgia, and Clarksville, Tennessee. From Clarksville he removed to Virginia and assumed editorial charge of the "Missionary Weekly," which jour- nal under his management for nine years grew constantly in circulation and influence. Having entirely recovered his health he decided to give himself wholly to preaching and to pastoral labor. He accepted a call to the First Church, Winchester, Ky., in i89i, and remained there for nearly two years. During his stay with this church more than two hundred new members were received. From Winchester he moved to Louisville and for a little more than a year preached for the Broadway Chris- tian Church. Under his ministry on Broadway a large number were added to the church. Having been called to the Central Church, Lexington, Kv., he accepted the call and began his labors with it on January I, i895. During his term of a little more than two years with the Central Church more than three hundred have been added to the congregation and the church is now one of the largest, most aggressive and liberal congregations in the denomination or in the South. Mrs. Spencer is a most intelligent and efficient help- meet. Their children consist of three daughters and one son. In addition to Mr. Spencer's regular work as a pastor he writes occasional doctrinal, missionary and other practical articles for the press, holds protracted meetings, in which many have been gathered into the churches, and is now giving attention to special lines of work on behalf of the children.

In i888, under the direction of the Broadway Chris- tian Church, a mission Sunday-school was started and carried on with the assistance of students from the Col- lege of the Bible, at No. 34 Chestnut street. In a short time there was a demand for preaching, and soon the cottage became too small for the number attending these services. In i889, a brick house of worship was built, dedicated and called the Chestnut Street Christian Church. After the completion of the house, services were conducted by professors and students of the Col- lege of the Bible until the fall of i89o, when the services of Brother T. S. Tinsley were engaged. He proved to be a proficient and successful minister of the gospel, and, under his leadership, the cause rapidly advanced. Broad- way church at first supported the work, then when the church became stronger, they supplemented all finan- cial deficiencies until in 1893 the work was entirely self- sustaining. The first Lord's day in January, i892, Brothers Shouse and Tinsley ordained the following officers: Elders-John Simpson and I. M. Williams. Deacons- S. H. Moores and C. D. Cunningham. The following July, Brothers W. A. Adams and F. W. Hunt were elected and ordained deacons. The first of January, i893, Brother W. E. Crab- tree accepted the call to the ministry of the church. Under his faithful service the membership grew rapidly in numbers, and much good was accomplished both in and out of the church. The result of patient and diligent work on the part of the Ladies' Aid Society and young people, the church was carpeted and electric lights were put in, adding greatly to the comfort and beauty of the church.

"Four years have passed since the above synopsis of the early work of Chestnut Street Christian Church was made.

He was an earnest man, and manv of the sermons preached will be long remem- bered by those who heard him. During his service the Ladies' Aid Society had the interior of the church nicely or THE CHURCH RECORD. frescoed, and Brother Joe Miller was elected a deacon by the congregation. "Brother J. W. Taylor began his services with the church July i, i896, and continues with us at the present writing. . . . The congregation now numbers more than three hundred members, a fair percentage of which are active workers. All departments of the work are now doing active service, the Ladies' Aid Society de- serving special mention. The C. W. B. M. is composed of an earnest band of women. The Young Peoples' So- cietv has done a good work, adding materially to the spiritual development of its workers. The Young Men's Prayer Meeting, which has met weekly for three years past, numbers among its attendants our most earnest young men. The Sunday-school has been a valuable factor in the church; a large percentage of the church members have been developed and brought to Christ through its work. "As the forces of the church are, at present, well or- ganized, we hope, through the blessings of an all wise Providence, to do a better and grander work during the future years." Biographical Sketch of Pastor. Rev. John W. Taylor, pastor of the Chestnut Street Christian Church, was born in Kansas City, Mo., May 27, i866. He attended public and high schools, and was a student at Butler University for three sessions prior to entering the College of the Bible at Lexington, Ky., from which he graduated, and took charge of a church at Burgin, Ky., in i890, where he remained for two years. From there he went to Hicksville, Ohio, as pastor of a church, and remained there for two years. His next charge was a church in Defiance, Ohio, which he served for two years, and then devoted himself to evange- listic work for six months before taking charge of his present church, where he has been since July, i896. Mr. Taylor is one of the most progressive young min- isters in the city, and the present flourishing condition of the church is owing greatly to his energy and faithful duties as a devoted pastor. 9a CHISTNUT-STREET CHRISTIAN CHURCH.

The century that marks the history of Christ Church, Lexington, Ky., from its organization in 1794 to the present time, is certainly an eventful one, considered ec- clesiastically, historically and biographically. Those early Christians who, more than one hundred years ago, erected the small frame house upon the site of the present church, surely builded wiser than then they knew. The history of this church is even more than of local or state importance; but of national interest, considering the long succession of learned and consecrated minis- ters who have served at her altar, and afterward have gone to different and distant parts of this country, whose influence for Christian civilization can not be estimated, as well as many members of that church who have been useful for God and his service in private life, in the state and national councils. The Rev. James Moore, of 'Virginia, was the first rector, called in I792. He was learned and pious, and of beautiful manners. He was president of Transylvania University in I798, and died the 22d of January, i8I4, age forty-nine years. In i8o8, a brick house of larger proportions suc- ceeded the frame building, and strange as it may sound, the funds raised for this building were started in a lottery. Among the projectors of this scheme was Lord Morton. He is ever to be remembered gratefully by citizens of Lexington as having made a donation by will for the establishment of a public school for the children of this city, who thereby became his heirs, and for whom the public school building on Walnut street has been called. Rev. John Ward became rector in I813. During his ministry he conducted a large female school, and was useful and universally esteemed. He died in i86o, at (94) (I CHRIST CHURCH (EPISCOPAL). the age of eighty-two, and Jby will left his late home on Second street to the church as a rectory. We next record the name of Rev. Lemuel Burge as rector in September, i8i9. Succeeding him was Rev. Geo. T. Chapman, of Massachusetts, in July, 1820; rec- tor for ten years. 'During his ministnr a larger brick church was built, that also upon the present site. Rev. Benjamin Bosworth Smith became rector in i830. He was born June I3, 1794, in Rhode Island; CHRIST CHURCH kEPISCOPAL). was ordained a priest in i8i8, and was consecrated bishop in i832. As the senior bishop in the House of Bishops in the United States, Rt. Rev. Bishop Smith presided over the House of Bishops at several recurring tri-annual conventions. This consecrated man died onlv a few years ago. During the ministry of Bishop Smith, Dr. Henry Caswell became assistant rector. Succeeding him Rev. Edward Winthrop, of Massa- chusetts became temporary rector; but the regular suc- cessor of the Rt. Rev. B. B. Smith was the Rev. Edward F. Berkley, who, having completed his theological studies in the Episcopal Theological School in this city, became rector in January, 1839. During his ministry, 96 THE CHURCH RECORD. and on March I7, i847, the corner stone of the present building was laid, with imposing religious ceremonies. Rev. Dr. James Craik, of Louisville, made the address of dedication. During Rev. Mr. Berkley's ministry, the Hon. Henry Clay was confirmed. He was baptized at Ashland in BISHOP SMITH. the presence of his family and a few friends by Mr. Berk- ley, who also officiated at his funeral in i852, also at his home at Lexington. During, and for years subsequent to Rev. Mr. Berk- ley's rectorship, a person visiting Christ Church would have been pathetically impressed by the presence of a blind man, Mr. William D. Hulett, presiding at the or- gan. His services were highly appreciated, and, for his faithfulness and general usefulness in the church, he was presented with a copy of the Bible and Prayer Book printed by the American Bible Society for the blind; at that day a very rare and valuable gift. It is a pleasure 96 CHRIST CHURCH (EPISCOPAL). to remember that the Bible, in three very large volumes, is still used by a similarly afflicted family near this city; and the Prayer Book was presented by a devoted mem- ber of the church, now called to her Heavenly rest, to a blind person, who is at present a communicant of the church. Mr. Berklev resigned the rectorship in I857, having been called to St. George's Episcopal Church in St. Louis, where he still lives in the quiet evening of a long and useful life, endeared to hosts of loving friends. Rev. James H. Morrison, of Virginia, next became rector in I858, and he was succeeded in October, i86o, by Rev. Jacob S. Shipman , D. D., who was born at Niagara, in New York. November 30, I832. Dr. Ship- man was a man of brilliant intellect, a graduate of Yale, and in every way accomplished. In the historical address by Dr. Lyman Beecher Todd on the semi-centennial anniversary of the Lexington and V icinitv Bible Society, Dr. Todd referred to Dr. Ship- man in these words: "Rev. Jacob S. Shipman, rector of Christ Church, Lexington, Kv., from i86i to i877. Of Mr. Shipman's usefulness as a minister of the gospel, faithfulness as a pastor, and also of his admirable ad- ministrative ability, the venerable Bishop Smith, on visit- ing this parish and administering the right of confirma- tion to the largest class ever presented in the history of the church, remarked, in the presence of the writer: ' This chiurch, Christ Church, here at Lexington, is greatly blessed in the rector. Dr. Shipman has an old head on young shoulders; and I do believe he is the only man in America who, when every Protestant church in Lexington has divided during the war, could have held his church together.' Pure in spirit, and with a warm heart, he gave comfort to the afflicted; and with bright intellect and genial nature carried instruction and glad- ness everywhere. He will ever have a green spot in many, many loving hearts of the citizens of Lexington and their descendants. He is now rector of Christ Church, New York City: and his gifted son, Herbert Shipman, who was his father's assistant for years, has recently been appointed chaplain of the United States M1ilitary Academv at West Point." Dr Shipman was succeeded by Thomas S. Tidball in the year 1878, and resigned in I885, and is at present rector of the Church of the Epiphany in Philadelphia. Rev. Dr. Edward H. XWard wvas next rector, coming in the year i885, and resigned in I897. Dr. Ward is now rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Pittsburg, Pa. 7 97 THE CHURCH RECORD. During these many long and eventful years, Christ Church and congregation has enjoyed visitations, ser- mnons and the administration of the rite of confirmation by many eminent divines and bishops, among whom are Rev. Dr. Quintard, of Tennessee, and Rev. Dr. George D. Cummings, long since called to his reward. In i895, the Diocese of Kentucky was divided into Lex- ington and Diocese of Kentucky. Soon thereafter, in the church convention held in Christ Church, December 5. I895, Rev. Lewis XV. Burton, a man of ability, learn- ing and great consecration, was elected bishop of the Lexington Diocese of Kentucky, December 5, i895, and was consecrated in Louisville January 30, i896; held his first confirmation in Christ Church, March I5, i896. lie is now industriously, successfully and acceptably dis- charging the duties of his office. Perhaps the most important event in the history of Christ Church may be considered the action of the church assembled on Monday evening, March I5, i897, when, by an overwhelming vote of the church and congrega- tion, Christ Church was tendered to Rt. Rev. Bishop Burton as the cathedral church of the Lexington Dio- cese. The tender of the church is made upon the following terms and subject to the following conditions: i. That the bishop shall, in addition to his preroga- tives and duties as diocesan, be the chief pastor and di- rector of the parish, with the right, at all times and at his pleasure, to use the church and other parish buildings, except the rectory, for all diocesan and episcopal pur- poses; to officiate, preach, administer the sacraments and conduct such other rites, ordinances and services in the church, chapels and missions of the parish; to take part in their deliberations, and to submit to them from time to time such suggestions and counsel as he may see fit. 2. This being designed as the preliminary step to- w ward the establishment of a cathedral system, which shall conduce to greater efficiency in the missionary work and other activities of the church in this diocese-the ultimate form of which system is to be determined by future trial and experience-the bishop shall also, until other provision therefor be made by consent of the bishop and of the vestry of this parish, have the power to constitute, as he may see fit, a cathedral chapter, its powers, privileges and duties to be prescribed by him from time to time, but to be consistent with those other- wise recognized or assigned in this resolution, and also with those conferred and imposed upon this parish and 98 CHRIST CHURCH 'EPISCOPAL). upon the rector and vestry by canon law and upon the corporation of "the rector, wardens and vestry of Christ Church in the city of Lexington," by civil law; pro- vided, however, that the bishop shall always be the offi- cial head of such chapter, and that the rector of this parish, and two lay members of this vestry, shall always be members thereof. 3. The rector of this parish, who shall also have the title of Dean of the Cathedral, shall be elected by the vestry from nominations submitted to it by the bishop, with the right, however, upon the part of the vestry, to reject any and all nominations until some person sat- isfactory to it be named; and he shall be charged with all the duties, and have all the rights and privileges of rector, as defined by canon law and ecclesiastical usage, except as the same are modified by the rights and privi- leges hereby conferred upon the bishop. This parish shall have all rights, powers, privileges and obligations which the other parishes of this diocese may possess or be charged with. 5. The arrangement hereby proposed shall cease with the termination of the episcopate of the present bishop, the Right Reverend Lewis W. Burton, unless thereafter continued by the mutual consent, expressly and formally thereto given to his successor in office and of the rector, vestry and congregation of this parish. Miss Bertha Embry is the organist of Christ Church, an accomplished musician, painstaking, industrious, de- voted to instruction in church music, and has given great satisfaction in the discharge of her difficult and onerous duties. The Sabbath-school of Christ Church has long been successfully conducted, from which, for years, many most faithful and useful members of the church have come. It has now an average attendance of one hundred and ten scholars. Mr. Clarence Crittenden Calhoun is superintendent. Mr. Charles W. Bean is secretary and treasurer. Mr. Samuel G. Bovle is librarian.

In I887, Christ Church established a mission, located on South Broadlwav, on a lot generously donated by a member of the church, Mr. J. Q. A. Haymon, called the Chapel of the Good Shepherd. On December 30, 1887, the chapel was formally opened by the bishop of diocese, Thos. U. L)udlev, D. D., by excellent address. Religious services are conducted there on Sunday and Tuesday evenings. A Parents' Aid Society meets on Friday afternoon, and is presided over by Miss Linda Nevelle. A Sunday-school, with an average attendance of more than a hundred, is held everv Sundav afternoon. The superintendent is 'Mr. Wm. Plunkett. Instructor of the Bible class is M1r. William Warren.

Christ Church has three guilds, viz.: (i) The Woman's Guild, (2) The Gleaners, (3) St. Catharine's. Biographical Sketch of Bishop Burton. The Rt. Rev. Lewis William Burton, D. D., first bishop of Lexington, was born in Cleveland, Ohio, No- vember 9, I852. His father was the Rev. Lewis Burton, D. D., one of the best known of the clergy of the Diocese of Ohio, with which diocese he was associated for forty- seven years, from 1847 until his death in i894. Dr. Burton, Sr., was for twenty-four years of this time rector of St. John's Church, and afterward rector and then rector emeritus of St. Mark's Church, Cleveland. He was also the founder of All Saints' Church in the same citv. An uncle of the present bishop, the Rev. William M. Burton, was the immediate predecessor of Dr. Lewis 100 CHRIST CHURCH (EPISCOPAL). Burton in the rectorship of St. John's Church, Cleveland, and another uncle on his mother's side, the Rev. John S. Wallace, was the first rector of St. Andrew's Church, Louisville, Ky., of which parish the bishop was rector at the time of his election to the episcopate. The present bishop graduated from Kenyon College in i873, being valedictorian and first honor man of his class. From Kenyon, he took successively the degrees of B. A. and M. A. in course, and the honorary degree of D. D., the latter after his election to the episcopate.

During the early part of the year i885 a number of laymen of Christ Church parish, Lexington, Ky., began the discussion of organizing a second parish in this city. At this time Christ Church was without a rector. A meeting was held early in January, a paper was drawn up and addressed to the Rt. Rev. Thomas Underwood Dudley, bishop of the Diocese of Kentucky, signed by fifteen male members who were communicants of the church and residents of the city. The purport of the paper was to obtain from the bishop his official consent to the organization of St. John's Parish. The bishop at once gave his consent and approval. At a meeting held soon after a vestry consisting of the following gen- tlemen was elected: Messrs. Anderson Berry, A. J. Campbell, 1. F. Edgar, William Farley, Alexander Gib- bons, Ed. K. Graves, F. E. Johns, J. E. Keller, A. I. Tot- ten, John S. Wilson, Harry Williams and Theodore Wil- liams. A. J. Campbell, Esq., was elected senior warden, A. I. Totten, junior warden, and J. Esten Keller, secre- tary. The vestry elected and called for its first rector the Rev. Robert Elliott Grubb, who took charge of the parish about the ist of May, i885. The first service was held in a room in the Carty Building, corner of Main and Mill streets, on the 17th of the same month, and was continued in the same building till the following January, when the services were discontinued owing to the financial inabil- ity of the congregation to meet the expenses. During the rectorship of Rev. Mr. Grubb one marriage was cele- brated, three persons were baptized and three members were buried. After a lapse of two years and by consent of the bishop in April, i888, a quorum of the old vestry met and determined to revive the services and start anew the work begun. At this meeting there were present Messrs. A. I. Totten, A. J. Campbell, Anderson Berry (108) ST. JOHN S EPISCOPAL CHURCH. and R. B. Hatchraft, who had been elected to the vestry in the winter of i885. They, constituting a quorum, pro- ceeded to elect others in the congregation to fill vacan- cies and the following were chosen: Judge Z. Gibbons, Levi T. Rodes, Henry A. Guthrie, Henry A. Engman, George J. Warren, M. F. Norris and F. E. Johns, who was one of the old vestry, making twelve in all. This meet- ing was held on the i5th of June, i888, and thus began the new St. John's. The lot upon which the church is built was donated by J. Esten Keller, Esq., whose generosity to the parish continued till he removed from the citv. The corner stone was laid by the bishop on September i8, i888, with a very impressive ceremony. There were present besides the bishop the following clergy: G. A. Weeks, of Cvnthiana; G. C. Betts, of Louisville: W. H. Barn- well, of Paris; H. H. Sneed, of Mt. Sterling, W. G. Mc- Cready, of Versailles; Dr. Ward; G. A. Stansberry, of Christ Church, and the Rev. Mr. Wilson, of St. Andrew's, this citv, besides a congregation numbering nearly or quite i,00 persons. The first rector of the new St. John's was the Rev. Samuel Johnson French, who took charge of the parish about November I4, i888. The services of St. John's be- gan on true Catholic lines and so are continued. The Rev. Dr. Pelham Williams served the parish as rector for six months as "priest in charge" on the resignation of the Rev. Mr. French on All Saints' Day, i89i. On June 12, 1892, Trinity Sunday, the Rev. Roger Hanson Peters, came to the parish and served as priest till Feb- ruarv, I895. During the months of February and March the Rev. M. M. Benton, archdeacon, conducted the ser- vices and on the ist of April the Rev. John Sword entered on his duties as priest and served as such till the middle of December, 1895. During the incumbency of this godly and learned priest a chapel was made and a side altar was erected wholly at the expense of this gen- erous hearted man of God, except the stone for the altar, which was gratuitously furnished by Wm. Sleath, Esq. The present rector, the Rev. E. A. Bazett-Jones, took charge on March 22, the fifth Sunday in Lent, i8)6. St. John's has been blessed in havingsomeof the most learned priests in the church to serve at its altars and but for the modest circumstances, financially, of its members, who are unable to liquidate the debt owing by the parish, would to-day be in the front in church work generally. Since the new St. John's commenced its work there have 109 THE CHURCH RECORD. been: Baptisms, 69; confirmed, 57; marriages, i2; funer- als, 30; communicants, at present, about 50. The church is open every day and a daily celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Seats are free and the poor have the gospel preached to them. The character of the services is shown by a paper read by a layman to the vestry at a meeting held on August 3I, i89i. "I believe that here we are worshiping with forms and ceremonies which are those of the Holy Catholic Church, which are in accordance with the spirit and letter of our Ordinal and without which the services at the cele- bration of the Holy Eucharist and at the minor offices are mutilated, incomplete and non-Catholic. I believe only in observing such ritual as is to-day called Catholic, and is found in conformity with the traditions, usages and doctrines of the Holy Catholic Church of the ages past and present." A vested boy choir was introduced on Easter Day, i890, and the services as rendered compared very favor- ablv with those held in churches in much larger cities. The font sitting in the body of the church near the inner door was presented by Anderson Berry, Esq., and others and is "In Loving Memory" of H. K., M. T. and L. 0. Berry. Quite a beautiful and costly window in the front of the church bears the inscription, "In memory of Jas. A. and Mary E. Harper and Kate Harper Camp- bell." The window is in the highest style of decorative art, and has a figure of St. John the Evangelist with pen and eagle, emblematical of this beloved apostle of our dear Lord. Another window, much smaller but quite a costly window, directly over the altar, contains the image of the crucified Christ upon the cross. A massive rood beam, surmounted by an oaken cross, connects the two columns of the center arch between the nave and choir. The members of the choir consisted of E. C. Newlin, organist; J. Pointz Nelson, choir master; L. E. Elsworth, I. J. Blackburn, W. H. Sharpley, F. H. Diller, Geo. H. Chase, George A. Weeks, G. H. Sharpley, Richard M. Nelson, J. E. Keller, Jr., S. 0. Cavette, W. T. French, Louis M. Schweedes, Jno. R. Crawley, John C. Schweedes, Louis Fischer, John D. Reynolds, Francis J. French, Kerry Compton, Charlton A. Metcalfe, Wil- liam G. P. Perkins, Thomas P. Edgar, Owen D. Keller, Walter S. Carr and G. Drummond Hunt. The services were choral throughout and were very im- pressive, attractive and inspiring. The officers of the parish to-day are Messrs. George Copeland, senior war- 110 ill ST. JOHN'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH. den; George S. Weeks, junior warden; George J. War- ren, secretary; Anderson Berry, A. MI. Peter, WV. F. Jen- nings, Frank Kirschner, H. J. Vandermark and W. S. Welsh. H. B. Clav was elected treasurer. St. Agnes' Guild is rendering substantial aid in parish work, besides contributing largely toward its financial support. The members of the Altar Guild, composed of the younger women, arc energetic, devotional and are of great service in the requirements of their offices. The Sunday-school has a fair attendance and is presided over by the rector, assisted by Mr. J. S. Keller, superintendent, and Mrs. Bazett-jones. Biographical Sketch of Rector. Father E. A. Bazett-Jones, the present rector of St. John's Church, was born at Fleetwood, in the county of Lancashire, England, on June 9, i845. His infancy was spent there, and in earlv childhood he was taken by his parents to live near Preston, his father's interests necessitating the change. At a lovely home some seven miles from the city his childhood was spent, receiving his early education and training from his mother until he was nine years old, and then upon her death, which happened about this time, his father employed a governess, who taught his younger sister and brother as well as himself until he was twelve years old, when he was sent to school. For three years he attended the Preston Grammar School, a foundation of King Edward VI, I 549. From this school he was taken and placed at a private school, begun by a personal friend of his father's. The school after a few years weas broken up, owing to the head master having accepted the position of leader of a large and prominent school in Yorkshire. His father, acting under the advice of the family physician, for some time kept him in the country, where his time was spent principally out of doors, engaged in the dear old English sports and athletics, until having become thoroughly strong he was taken into his father's office and in- structed by him in the rudiments of a business educa- tion. From there he was sent to Liverpool, aw-here, through the influence of his father's friends, he obtained a position in the Bank of Liverpool, remaining there THE CHURCH RECORD. until some little time after his father's death. He be- came interested with mutual friends in an idea which took firm possession of them to go abroad and settle. After some investigation it was determined to go to the United States, and, putting what capital they had to- gether, land was purchased in the State of Minnesota. He remained here long enough to discover that farm- FATHER U. A. BAZErT-JONES. ing was very hard work, and very little income accruing therefrom. Two years' experience led to abandoning the farm and entering business. After several years of active work, circumstances arose, which, under guidance, led him to study for orders. He entered Seabury Hall Divinity School, and took the theological course. His first work was serving his diaconate in Gethsemane Parish, Minneapolis, Mlinn., when at the end of the year he was ordained to the priesthood, sent to the parishes of Zumbrota and Pine Island, remained in charge a little over twvo years, was transferred to Iowa and took charge 12 ST. JOHN'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH. of Holy Cross Parish, Keokuk. In the third year of his rectorate he organized a colored work called the Mis- sion of St. Mary the Virgin, and for nearly four years ministered to both white and colored work. In the fall of i89i he was transferred to the Diocese of Chicago, and in charge of the parish at Elgin, where he remained a little over a year, when the bishop placed him in charge of a new mission which had been organized in the city of Chicago. For two years the mission flourished and then for some unexplained reason the bishop killed it. For rest he then took charge of a small parish in the Dio- cese of Chicago. Remaining one year, he received and accepted a call to the parish of St. John, Lexington, Ky. Entering upon his charge on Passion Sunday, I896, he has as rector led and directed the parish until now. 8 113 NAPYLAND-AV[NNU[ GERMAN EVANGELICAL CHURCH. Historical Sketch.

Mr. Frohne was educated at Elmhurst Seminary, a short distance from Chicago, and Eden College, at St. Louis, having spent four years at the seminary and three at college. Mr. Frohne is a member of the German Evangelical Synod of North America. In I896, he mar- ried Miss Annie Schroeder, of Freelandsville, Ind. The Maryland Avenue Church is Mr. Frohne's first charge, which he is conducting most acceptably to his congregation. He is very energetic and progressive, and just such a pastor as a struggling new church needs to tide it over the crisis to a firm foundation. List of Members. Affolter, Mrs. J., No 57 Winnie street.

Otto Kuhr, pastor of the Ger- man Lutheran congregation at Ottenheim, Lincoln county, Ky., came to this city to preach to the German Lutherans in this place. He gathered a small congre- gation, which was organized in the summer of the same ST. JOHN S EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH. year, as the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Congrega- tion. Rev. Kuhr now served as the minister of this con- gregation. They were furnished with a place of wor- ship by the kindness of the Second Presbyterian Church, (117) THE CHURCH RECORD. and later of the Maxwell Presbyterian Church. From April to August, i892, they were permitted to use the Chestnut Street Christian Church. Early in i892, Rev. Kuhr left Lexington, and on March 4th, Rev. Paul Schencke took his place. About this time a number of members, who did not agree with the confessional standpoint of the congregation, left it. The remaining members, then about ten in number, at once proceeded to build a church of their own. The lot for the building, on the corner of Fifth and Wolf streets, was donated bv the late Mr. D. F. Wolf, an old citizen of Lexington and member of the congregation. The church was dedicated on October 30, i892. On July 28, i895, Rev. Schencke having taken another call, Rev. J. F. C. Schmidt. member of the Evangelical Lu- theran Synod of Missouri, took charge of the congrega- tion. In September of the same year, the congregation established a parochial school, to provide more sufficient religious instruction for their children than can be given in a Sunday-school. The school is conducted by the pastor. Besides the regular course of a grammar-school it gives instruction in religion and German. Sunday- school is held in English. The congregation receives as its confession the Augs- burg confession and the other Lutheran symbols con- tained in the Book of Concord. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. Rev. J. F. Charles Schmidt, pastor of St John's Evan- gelical Lutheran Church, is a native of Ohio. Was born at Elyria, Ohio, in i874. He attended Concordia Col- lege at Ft. Wayne, Ind., and finished his preparation for the ministry at Concordia Theological Seminary, St. Louis. He was a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Missouri, when he was called to Lexington to take charge of the little church erected on the corner of Fifth and Wolf streets by a faithful few. Mr. Schmidt also conducts a parochial school in con- nection with his duties as pastor. He is a most earnest, thorough and untiring worker among his flock, and is much beloved by them. This is his first pastorate, which he began in i895. The future holds great promise for this faithful young pastor. 118 ST. JOHN'S EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH. List of Members.

In i844 the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States was divided into two parts-one of which, the M. E. Church, South, occupied the then slave States of the Union. After the close of the civil war, at the session of the Kentucky Conference held September, i865, reso- lutions were introduced memorializing the General Con- ference, in view of the fact that slavery had been abol- ished, to take steps looking to organic re-union of the two Methodisms. This was voted down by a large ma- jority. As a result of this action eighteen members of the conference (believing that they would be sustained by a large portion of the Methodists in the State) deter- mined to withdraw from the Church South, and cast their lot once more with the old church. Something over one hundred members withdrew from the Hill Street AI. E. Church, South, and, on the 3d day of January, i866, in a private residence in this city, that of Hiram Shaw, Esq., were organized and tendered to Bishop D. W. Clark, who was to preside at the Kentucky Con- ference of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Covington, Ky., March, i866, with the request that a pastor be sent them by the bishop. At this March conference the "eighteen" joined the M. E. Church and one of their number, Rev. Duke Slavens, a relative of Bishop Kavanaugh, was appointed to Lexington. A lot was purchased on the corner of Broadway and Church street, and by October following the chapel at the rear of the present church building had been erected and was dedicated to the service of God by Dr. (afterward Bishop) Isaac W.

Dr. Stevenson was aggressive and when he departed in March, i87I, he and the con- gregation had mutual satisfaction in realizing that the present church building had been erected and paid for during his administration. Up to this time all the pas- tors had been native Kentuckians. Now a new depart- ure was determined upon. A transfer from Rock River CENTENARY METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. Conference, George E. Strobridge, was made pastor, and during his administration of three years the membership was nearly doubled, and all the work of the church pushed forward with great success. T. M. Leslie, a former member of the West Virginia Conference, served the church for one year, and then went to Ohio. Jas. E. Gilbert, from the Cincinnati Con- ference, next served for three years and was succeeded by J. L. Sooy, of New Jersey, who served the church for two and a half vears. Again a member of Rock River Conference, in the person of Adam J. Jutkins, was ap- pointed and served for two years. Now the church re- 121 THE CHURCH RECORD. turned to the Kentucky Conference and Rev. Wm. Mc- Afee served the church for three years. He was suc- ceeded by Ira T. Walker, from Wyoming Conference, who held the place for three years. F. D. T. Bickley, of Western New York, served the church for one year, and was followed by H-enry Tuckley, whose health failed in the middle of his third year, and who was on this account released from the pastorate. J. B. Smith, of Hull, Mass., was transferred to fill Dr. Tuckley's vacancy in the middle of the vear. He remained one year and a half and was transferred to another field. He was followed by Dr. A. D. Knapp, of North Ohio, for three years. This brings us to September, i896, at which time the present incumbent, B. R. Wilburn, was transferred from Johnstown, Pa., and appointed to Lexington. Dr. Wil- burn has been warmly welcomed and has already begun an excellent work. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. Dr. Wilburn is a native of Southwest Virginia. His people have been prominently identified with the civil and religious history of that State from the time of its early settlement. His paternal ancestors were among the sturdy Welsh pioneers of the Southwest. His mater- nal ancestors were French Huguenots, two of whom served as commissioned officers in the Revolution, and the War of i8I2. In early youth Dr. Wilburn applied himself to the studv of law, but after graduating, at the age of nineteen, he abandoned the idea of following the practice of law, and began to prepare himself for the work of the Chris- tian ministry. Shortly after entering the ministry he be- came pastor of a congregation in Baltimore, Md. Dur- ing his seven years' pastorate in that city he completed, under tutors, a course of scientific and philosophical study. At the close of his Baltimore pastorate, he served as pastor of a small church in Cincinnati, Ohio, for one year, from which place he was transferred to the Walton Church, Pittsburg, Pa. His next pastoral charge was First Church, Greensburg, Pa. From Greensburg he went to the Franklin Street Church, Johnstown, Pa. After a residence of two years in Johnstown, he was 122 CENTENARY METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. selected by the bishop, having charge for a pastoral term at Centenary, and was accordingly transferred to this city. He is among the latest accessions to the minis- terial corps of the city, his work here having begun last October. Dr. Wilburn is a man of broad scholarship and deep research, a careful and pleasing historian, and an elo- DP,. WILBURN. quent and effective preacher. His degree of "Doctor of Philosophy" was earned by the completion of the pre- scribed university course of study. In his work he may be said to be both aggressive and conservative. He pos- sesses the faculty of endearing himself not only to his own congregation, but to all the people of the community in which he resides. As an organizer he is possessed of more than ordinary talent, and knows how to use all the working force of his congregation to the best advantage. His sympathies being largely with young men in their 123 THE CHURCH RECORD. efforts to attain position, he finds no great difficulty in securing their sympathy in return. The matter of his sermons is helpful, and thoughtful, while his manner of delivers is deliberate, earnest and direct. He speaks without the aid of manuscript, and spends no time on preliminary discussion, but after announcing his text en- ters at once into the spirit of his subject. He is an en- thusiastic student of the peoples and literature of the Orient. and is regarded as an accomplished Biblical and Oriental archaeologist. He is an enthusiastic member of several learned societies of Orientalists, among which is the 'Society of Archaeology and Palaeontology of the University of Pennsylvania." This latter is a society of learned Orientalists engaged in collecting and decipher- ing the prehistoric annals of ancient Chaldaea. The Doctor has been warmlv received by the good people of Centenary, and it is believed his pastorate in this church will be satisfactory to himself and the people he serves.

This was in the year I786. The appointment in the minutes of that year reads, "Kentucky," the first circuit formed in this vast territory. These two missionaries, however, had been preceded by several local preachers of more than ordinary ability, who had organized societies in different settlements. Francis Clark, local preacher, with John Durham, class leader, settled about six miles west of Danville, and formed a society, in the year 1783. About the same time, Nathaniel Harris and Phillip Tay- lor, of Virginia, and Gabriel and Daniel Woodfield, of Redsandstone, came and settled, the first two in jessa- mine, the latter in Fayette. These men preached to the pioneer settlers and formed several small societies. When the Kentucky circuit was formed, 1786, and Haw and Ogden were sent to it, they found a few feeble Meth- odist societies already existing; just ninety members in all. One of these societies was at Masterson's Station, four or five miles from the town of Lexington, where a log church was built in 1787, presumably the first Meth- odist church structure in Kentucky. Although a permanent settlement was formed at Lexington as early as I779, under Col. John Patterson and twenty-five associates, no Methodist society was formed here for nearly ten years, in I789, although the pioneer Methodist preachers several times made a pass- ing call. Conditions seem to have been unfavorable. A few lay Methodists, very poor, but good, honest peo- ple, kept the holy fire alive in their hearts by holding re- ligious worship, such as prayer and class meetings in pri- 10 (1 4 5) THE CHURCH RF.CORD. vate homes, but no regular, organized society was formed until about I789. Very little mention is made of Lexington for a number of years. In 1790, the first Methodist Conference was held at Masterson's Station, Bishop Asburv presiding, but he did not stop or preach in Lexington. The first mention of Bishop Asbury stopping in Lexington is in his journal of i8o5, and then he makes no mention of preaching. From these facts we infer that the society as vet was small, and it was HILL-STREET METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, SOUTH. probably not prepared to entertain even a plain preacher like Asbury; besides, there was no suitable house pro- vided for preaching. We are informed, notwithstanding, that, in 1803, Lexington asked to be separated from the Lexington circuit and made a station; that the request was granted, and Rev. Thomas Wilkerson was ap- pointed in charge, yet the regular minutes do not agree to this view. Wilkerson was appointed to Lexington circuit in 1796. For 1803 the minutes read, Samuel Danthet. The society in Lexington had a hard struggle. Redford (Hist. Meth. in Kv.) says: "In i8i9 the church was very small and feeble, and worshiped in an ill- 146 HILL-STREET M. E. CHURCH, SOUTH. shaped, dilapidated building far out in the east end, likely at the corner of Dewees and Short streets, where the col- ored Baptist church now stands. It was not till i820 that this church received any special impulse toward a healthy growth. A revival sprung up, as a result of the great revival at Ebenezer, in Clark county, brought into Lexington by those who attended that wonderful meet- ing, mostly members of the church in Lexington, who caught the holy fire and spread it throughout the city. Up to that time, we are told, there was not a young per- son in the society. The revival continued through i820 and 182I, during which time a great many persons, young and old, were converted and brought into the church. MIany strong men contributed by their zealous and self-sacrificing spirit and efficient labors to the early establishment of Methodism in Lexington and through- out the region of Kentucky: such as Paythress, Haw, McHenry, Lee, Massie, O'Cull, Page, Allen, Brooks, Northcutt, Ray, Burke, Cook, Gibson, Baird, etc., but the chief among them all was the invincible Francis Pay- thress. Later, such men as Jonathan Stamper, William Gunn, George C. Light, Wm. Stribbling, H. H. Kavan- augh, George W. Brush, T. N. Ralston, Edward Steven- son, John H. Linn, Edward Sehon. L. D. Huston, Peter Akers, John Newland Maffett, H. B. Bascom, Benj. Crouch and more than a score of other names, justly dis- tinguished as among the greatest pulpit orators and di- vines of modern times. Lexington enjoyed the ministry of all these men from time to time, either as regular pastors or frequent visitors. The Hill Street M. E. Church (since I845, M. E. Church, South), has had its troubles, perhaps, more than most other churches. In i8io it was a station, and Dr. Caleb W. Cloud the pastor. In i8ii it seems to have been again placed in the Lexington circuit with three preachers, viz., C. Holding, E. Truett and Caleb W. Cloud. Dr. Cloud was a man of pietv and ability, but ambitious and eccentric. These qualities brought him into antagonism with a large portion of the member- ship and resulted in his withdrawal, tozether with a num- ber of members, over whom he wielded great personal influence. This secession occurred in the year i812. After nreaching for some time at his own house, he suc- ceeded in building St. John's Chapel, where he offici- ated gratuitously as pastor for quite a number of vears. He finally came back to the Methodist church, and died within her bosom May 14, i850. 147 THE CHURCH RECORD. The feeble and unprosperous state of the church from i8ii to i8i9, when the revival broke out, was doubtless largely due to the disturbances created by the event just mentioned. The revival of i820 and i82i enabled the church to abandon its former ill-favored quarters and erect a new, plain, but comfortable and commodious brick church, 5ox6o feet, with a large gallery for overflow congrega- tions, and for the people of color in her communion. From this time, under the pastoral care of such men as Ed. Stevenson, Richard Tydings, William Holman, H. H. Kavanaugh, George C. Light, Spencer Cooper and Peter Cartwright, the church continued to prosper. The present church building was erected in i84I, and dedicated by Doctor, afterward Bishop, H. B. Bascom, one of the most wonderful of all the great galaxy of American pulpit orators. The division of the church in the United States of America in i845, provided for by the General Confer- ence of the whole church in I844, affected, to some ex- tent, the growth and prosperity of Hill Street Church for a number of years, as, indeed, it did for the entire body of the church in the state. Hill Street Church very promptly connected her fortunes with the Southern wing -of this great body of Christians, and so has remained to this day. A second secession occurred in i856. A difficulty sprung up about the powers of the officers in the removal of the pastor, Rev. Samuel Adams. It was followed by the withdrawal of Mr. Adams and some fifty-seven mem- bers from the communion of the WI. E. Church, South, and the organization of an Independent Methodist Church, with Mr. Adams as pastor. The congregation bought the old Medical Hall lot, and built on it a very neat, plain, brick church. Under the leadership of Revs. Samuel Adams and Nicholas Headington it continued to grow, until they returned, a few years after, to the communion of the church they had left, with over two hundred members. They conveyed the property by deed to trustees for the use and benefit of the M. E. Church, South, which continued to use it as a second church, most of the time, until i866, when it was sold for a city library, and the remnant of members transferred to Hill Street Church. During the great Civil War, from i86o to i865, this church had a great struggle for existence. Two sorts of people were within her pale, the Northern and Southern, 7 148 HILL-STREET M. E. CHURCH, SOUTH. and their opposite sympathies and prejudices kept the church in a state of turmoil and confusion. The Union- ists, however, held sway over the church in such way as to cause many Southern sympathizers to go into the fel- lowship of other churches. Quite a number, from time to time, made their way into the Presbyterian and Epis- copal churches, in order to avoid discord and enjoy a season of peace. A church convulsed by the violent prej- udices and passions, springing up on both sides during a REV. H. P. WALKER. desperate civil strife like ours, could not possibly experi- ence much numerical increase. Up to this period, and for years before, Hill Street Church continued to be served by men of marked ability, such as Wm. C. Dandy, John C. Harrison, John G. Bruce as P. E., R. Hiner, E. P. Buckner, etc. After the close of the Civil War, at the session of Con- ference held in Covington, September, i865, eighteen members of the Kentucky Annual Conference of the 149 THE CHURCH RECORD. M. E. Church, South, located and soon after went into the communion of the AM. E. Church. The occasion of this course on their part was the decisive action of the Conference, by a large majority, defeating their well concerted plan for committing the Kentucky Confer- ence, as well as the General Conference, to seek a union with the M. E. Church. This plan was outlined in the majority report of the committee on the state of the church. The minority report prepared by Rev. H. P. Walker, proposed to relegate the whole question of or- ganic union to the action of the two great co-ordinate bodies of Methodism, etc. This report, after a full and free discussion in open conference, was adopted by a large majority, whereupon the "loyal eighteen," as they have been stvled, proceeded, the day following, to lo- cate, but not until after the four delegates to the General Conference, which had been called to meet in New Or- leans the following May, had been chosen of men who stood firmlv on the minority report. Following the lead of these brethren, in the latter part of December, i865, about one hundred members withdrew from Hill Street M. E. Church, South, and soon after, March, i866, joined the M. E. Church in the city of Covington, during the session of Conference. At this Conference the eighteen were received as members, and Rev. Duke Slavens, a gifted young preacher of their number, was appointed to serve the newly organ- ized church in Lexington. This was the third seces- sion from the ranks of Hill Street Church. At this time Rev. H. P. Walker was in charge of Hill Street Church. He proceeded to consolidate the remaining member- ship, comparatively few in number, and mostly of small means, and succeeded, by the close of the year, in pay- ing off a large debt upon the church for repairs, and leav- ing a balance in the treasury. During the year he held a protracted meeting, at which a large number were con- verted and added to the church, and once more the tide of prosperity set in. At the close of this Conference year he was placed on the Lexington district, and was followed in the station by Rev. B. M. Messick. The church continued to prosper under the labors of R. K. Hargrove (about nine months), S. X. Hall, H. A. M. Henderson, J. Rand, C. W. Miller, H. P. Walker again, Rev. W. F. Noland (under whom the old building was remodeled into its present beautiful inside finish), John R. Deering and E. L. Southgate. All these brethren have done good work. During the pastorate of E. L. 1.50 HILL-STREET M. E. CHURCH, SOUTH. Southgate there was quite an extensive revival, and it was during his pastorate that a fresh impetus was given to the pet scheme of Dr. Walker, for many years, to have a second charge in Lexington. After much effort the design ripened into Epworth Church, but not until Dr. Walker had taken the responsibility for three years of having a Mission preacher appointed for Lexington, and the work kept, for two ylears, under the jurisdiction of the Quarterly Conference of Hill Street Ep- worth now gives fine promise of solid growth. Rev. E. L. Southgate was followed in Hill Street by Dr. W. T. Bolling, and he by Dr. C. H. Evans, transferred in the midst of the present Conference year to supply the place of Dr. Bolling, who wvas transferred to Colum- bus, Miss. The church is furnished with handsome pews, a beau- tiful carpet and a fine pipe organ. The congregation has provided, for the comfort of its pastors, a substan- tial and commodious brick parsonage on Upper street, and furnished it throughout with everything requisite for housekeeping. Hill Street paid her pastor, in i885, i,8oo, and I suppose the same for i886. I have not the minutes before me. She paid about 4oo to the benevolent collections, and i,874.50 to other purposes. She reported a membership of 494. The value of the church building is reported at 20,ooo, and its parson- age at 5,000. Thus it will be seen that after all her troubles she is yet moving on lines of fair prosperity. Hill Street has been kept up to a great extent by sev- eral very marked revivals, viz.: i820, under Dr. Ed. Stevenson; i830, under Bishop Kavanaugh; somewhere in the forties, by Dr. Maffett, a great worker; two under the labors of Dr. Walker-one in i866, the other in i878 or i879-in which more than two hundred pro- fessed conversion, and about one hundred and sixtv united with the church. The meeting continued for eight weeks, and imparted wonderful vitality to the church. Another, as already mentioned, under the pas- torate of E. L. Southgate. There were also others, not so large, yet of great value, but we have not the data before us. Mav the bow of this historic church con- tinue to abide in strength, and streams of salvation pro- ceed from her altar to bless and save the fallen race of Adam. 151 THE CHURCH RECORD. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. Rev. Chas. F. Evans, D. D., is a native of Louisiana, and was transferred to the Kentucky Conference, and stationed at Lexington, Ky., in December, i896. He was converted in 1853, and joined the Felicity Street REV. CHAS. F. EVANS, D. D. Church in New Orleans, where subsequently he was licensed to preach. He entered the itinerancy in Decem- ber, i864, and was stationed that year at Canton, Miss., and from that city, in the following year, was sent to New Orleans, La. There he served two pastorates, and his full term on the New Orleans district. He was also in Pine Bluff, Little Rock, Hot Springs, Ark., and Memphis and Chattanooga, Tenn. 152 HILL-STREET M. E.

They erected a log house of wor- ship on the S. E. corner of Walnut and Short streets, and called to the pastorate Rev. Adam Rankin, of Augusta county, Virginia. The church was first known as Mount Zion. During Mr. Rankin's administration the con- gregation was divided over some doctrine disputes. In 1792, Mr. Rankin withdrew from the presbytery, and, with his followers, formed the Associate Reform Church, over which he presided for twenty-five years. The part of the congregation who were approved to Mr. Ran- kin's views took the new meeting house, an unfinished frame building commenced before the church trouble culminated, which was situated on the corner of Mill and Short streets, and called Rev. James Welsh, of Vir- ginia, to fill the pulpit, which he did most acceptably until i804, after which it was filled temporarily by Dr. James Blythe, the president of Transylvania University. Rev. Robt. Stone and the faithful John Lyle served at different times, until the installation of the second reg- ular pastor, Rev. Robt. M. Cunningham, of Pennsyl- vania, in i8o7, who served from I807 to i822. He was succeeded by Rev. Wm. McCalla, who was followed by Rev. John Poage Campbell, D. D. Then came Rev. Nathan Hall's long and prosperous reign, from i823 to 1846. Rev. Robt. J. Breckenridge, the most talented min- ister in Kentucky, followed Mr. Hall and continued the pastorate until I853, when he removed to Danville as professor in the Theological Seminary. -lis successor was Rev. J. D. Mathews, whose ministry was so accept- able that he was retained many years-from i847 to i870. In i870, Rev. Wm. Dinwiddie, of Virginia, was chosen pastor, and remained until i874, when the present (166) FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. pastor, Rev. W. F. V. Bartlett, began his ministerial labors. In I892, the first church dismissed seventy-seven of its members to form the Maxwell Street Church, and this offspring has grown into a self-supporting church of two hundred and fifty members. It is also, in addition to its own Sunday-school, carry- ing on a flourishing mission school in the northwestern part of our city, and its members are engaged in Sunday- school work in the countrv. The ladies' societies are supporting a missionary in China, and are about to start a kindergarten in one of our mountain towns, and are active in helping the poor and sick of the citv. The church has under considera- tion, and will soon carrv into execution, a project for the enlargement and complete transformation of its house of worship and the parsonage. It is expected that the lecture-room and Sunday-school room will be entirely separated from the main building, and will be provided with the most ample accommodations. No single church organization in Kentucky, per- haps, has exerted so great an influence for good as this church for more than a hundred years. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. Rev. W. F. V. Bartlett, pastor of the First Presby- terian Church, was born in Portland, Me. At the age of ten years he began clerking in a store in Portland, and four years later went to Boston, and continued in the same business for three years, when he left Boston and entered the freshman class of Yale College, from which he graduated in 1853, after which he went south and taught school in Natchez, Miss., for several years, and then went to New York and spent three years at the Union Theological Seminary there, and returned to Natchez and became president of Washington College. On his return south, he was married to Miss Mary Moore, of Natchez, who is connected with the Moore family of Danville, Kv. The Civil War coming on about this time caused Dr. Bartlett no little struggle to decide whether to cast his lot with the people among whom he had so recently come, or to return to his native home and share their fate. His sole object was to do good, and finally de- 167 THE CHURCH RECORD. cided to minister to the spiritual wants of the First Ala- bama regiment at Port Hudson. At the close of the war, his health having failed, he traveled in Europe for two REV. W. F. V. BARTLETT, D. D. years, and on his return took the chair of Latin in Oak- land College, in Mississippi. In i874, he accepted a call to the First Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Ky., his first and only pastorate, which he still retains, notwithstanding the fact that he has received many calls from large churches in many cities. The University of Richmond, Ky., conferred the degree of D. D. on Dr. Bartlett several years ago. 168 FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. Officers of the Church. Pastor-Rev. WV. F. V. Bartlett, D. D.

The Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church, on the corner of Maxwell and Lawrence streets, and between South Upper and Limestone streets, was organized May 8, 1892, by a commission of the Presbytery of West Lex- ington. It is a vigorous offspring of the First Presby- terian Church of this city and came into existence after this manner: December 3, i888, the session of the First Church ap- pointed a committee, consisting of Messrs. James A. Headley, John Pew and E. S. DeLong, to take under consideration the propriety and the feasibility of establish- ing a mission in some promising part of the city. The en- terprise met with such a hearty approval that the com- mittee, to which Elder R. S. Bullock had been added, abandoned the idea of a mission, and in touch with the views of the congregation, determined to build a house that would answer at once for a church. March 3, i89o, they purchased a lot on Maxwell street, which had on it a two-story brick residence, facing Upper street, and the same which the new church pur- chased from the first church in February, I897, and is now known as the Maxwell Street Manse. On that part of the lot fronting Maxwell street they erected a handsome brick church, trimmed in stone, lighted by gas, heated by a furnace and furnished with modern pews, capable of seating comfortably four hun- dred worshipers. On the I7th day of August, i89i, this house of wor- ship was completed, free from debt, and dedicated to the service of the Lord bv Rev. W. F. V. Bartlett, the be- loved pastor of the First Church. Rev. C. T. Thomson, who had been called by the session of the First Church to labor in this part of their (184) MAXWELL-STREET PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. field as an assistant to their pastor, began his ministry in the new house of worship November IO, i89, anld so great was his success that a petition, approved by the session of the First Church. was presented to the Presbv- tery, April 6, 1892, asking for a separate church organiza- tion. This request was granted, an(1 a commission, con- sisting of Rev. (G. HI. Rout, D. D., Rev. WV. F. V. Bartlett, MAXWELL-STREET PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. D. D., Rev. C. T. Thomson and Elders D. B. Price and James A. Headlev, was appointed to organize the Max- well Street Presbyterian Churcb, Maav 8, 1892. Tile organization was effected with seventy-seven members, of whom thirty-three were a colonv from the First Church and fortv-four had been received bv Rev. C. T. Thomson in services at 'Maxwell Street. The officers elected were Elders T. T. Forman and W. L. Bartlett; and Deacons, Dr. Wmi. Rhodes and N. H. 185 16TH CHURCH RECORD. Smith. To these were added, February, i893, Elder J. Morton Davis, and Deacons J. W. Yent and J. R. Smith. The church grew rapidly under the faithful ministry of their beloved pastor, Rev. C. T. Thomson, and when, in February, i894, he severed his official connection with it to become the pastor of the Bethel and Horeb churches, there were a hundred and forty members on the roll and ninety pupils in the Sabbath-school. Before he left this field, in which his labors had been so signally blessed, he moderated a congregational meeting February iI, z894, when the church called Rev. I. S. McElroy to be their pastor. This call was accepted, and the new pastor began his ministry the first Sabbath of the following May. During the short vacancy in the pastorate, Rev. W. C. Young, D. D., president of Center College, supplied the pulpit for a few weeks, when the building was beau- tified and made more comfortable at a cost of several hundred dollars. The rapid growth of the church soon made a demand for additional officers, and December i, i895, B. F. Van Meter, Sr., and Dr. Wm. Rhodes were elected elders, and E. D. Veach, Jas. Rogers and W. D. Gay, deacons. During the five years of its history there have been added to the original seventy-seven members, two hun- dred and fifty new members, of whom the larger part re- main unto this present time. In February, i894, Rev. C. T. Thomson was assisted by Rev. J. H. Hopper in a successful evangelistic meet- ing, when there were forty-two additions, and in Novem- ber, i895, Dr. McElroy had the assistance of Rev. J. H. Evans in a similar meeting, when thirty-five members were received. These were the largest accessions at any one time, the others, for the most part, being received at the regular Sabbath services. The growth of this church in membership, although quite remarkable, has not exceeded its growth in those other directions so essential to a vigorous and efficient organization. It was never more prosperous than at present, never more hopeful of the future and never had a wider open door of usefulness. The congregations are good, the contributions are liberal, the Ladies' Aid and Missionary Societies are enthusiastic and the Sab- bath-school of one hundred and sixty members is thor- oughly organized with a corps of most competent teach- ers, who are doing an excellent work in this department. 186 MAXWELL-STREET PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. This church is especially notable for the activity and sociability of its members, and for the charity and har- mony that has characterized its historv. The seats are free, the offerings are voluntary, the visitors receive a cordial welcome. The present mem- bership is two hundred and seventy. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. The Rev. I. S. McElroy, D. D., pastor of the Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church, is a native Kentuckian, of Scotch-Irish Presbyterian parentage. His ancestors came to America in company with the Irvines, the Mc- Dowells and others in "the good ship George and Ann" about I723, and to Kentucky with a colony from Camp- bell county, Va., which effected the first white settlement in what is now Marion county, Ky., October, I789. The chief town of this county received its name from the old log meeting house which these settlers erected shortly after their arrival and called the Lebanon Presbyterian Church. Near this historic spot and not fifty miles from his present home Dr. McElroy was born July 30, i853. He was fortunate in having Prof. J. C. Fales, now dean of faculty of Center College, for his instructor until his sixteenth year, when he removed with his father's family to Newtonia, Mo., where for three years he taught school and studied law at night. When nineteen years of age a conviction of duty to preach the gospel, which he had successfully resisted on former occasions, took such a hold on him that he was constrained to yield to the divine call. Without delay he repaired to Danville, Ky., Jan- uary, i873, where he completed his academic education and then spent three years teaching in the Danville Class- ical and Military Academy. While teaching here he studied Hebrew and. Theology under Dr. Wm. F. Jun- kin. He completed his theological studies in Union Seminary, Va., May, 1878, and was ordained by the Pres- bytery of Missouri the following September. He had been a communicating member of the Presbyterian church since he was eleven years of age. From the theological seminary he went at once to the charge of the Keytesville and Brunswick churches in Mis- souri, where his labors were eminently successful until 187 THE CHURCH RECORD. the climate proving prejudicial to his health he accepted a call from the church at Stanford, Ky., October, i88o. The following month he was married to Annie Lee, the second daughter of Judge George F. Lee, of Danville. While pastor at Stanford lie also preached for a part of his time at Perryville and later at Hustonville. REV. I. S. McELROY, D. D. In October, i884, he accepted a call to the church at Mlt. Sterling, and gave a part of his time for the first year to the Springfield church as pastor elect. He remained at Mt. Sterling until July, i890, when he removed his family to this city. At his earnest solicitation his church consented reluctantly for him to provide them a supply for the year i889 while le and Chancellor Blanton would endeavor to raise an additional endowment of one hun- dred thousand dollars for Central University. This they accomplished in seven months and then the Synod of Kentucky requested Dr. McElroy to continue his labors with a view to securing an endowment fund for a theo- ;:t 'II 188 6I4 SO MAXWELL-STREET PRESBVTERIAN CHURCH. logical seminary. The following spring he resigned as pastor at Mt. Sterling and gave himself entirely to this new work. The Louisville Theological Seminary was organized March 29, i893, when the Synod most reluct- antly accepted his resignation. While securing subscrip- tions for this seminary, aggregating considerably more than a hundred thousand dollars, he also did the full work of a successful evangelist. Immediately on concluding his labors in behalf of the seminary he accepted a call from the Lexington, Mo., church, but his Presbytery refused consent and placed in his hands an invitation from the Bethel and Horeb churches, which he served until the following October, when the Synod elected him to superintend the State evangelistic work. Desiring to return to the pastorate, he declined this important position and spent that fall and winter with the First Church, Tampa, Fla., from which he had received a pastoral call. He continued to serve this church after lhe had declined the call until May, 1894, when he entered upon his present charge as pastor of the Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church of Lexington, Ky. Dr. McElroy has been honored by his brethren with some of the most responsible positions in his church. He is now a trustee of The Louisville Presbyterian Theologi- cal Seminary, a member of the Executive Committee of the Synod's evangelistic labor and chairman of the Com- mittee of Home Mission Work in his Presbytery. He was a delegate from the Southern General Assembly to the Pan Presbyterian Council at Glasgow, Scotland, which he attended in connection with a tour of three months in Europe the summer of i896. The Central University conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Divinity June, i894. Officers of the Church. Pastor-I. S. McElroy, D. D. Elders-J. M. Davis. B. F. VanMeter, Wm. Rhodes, MN. D.; W.

This church was organized in i8I5 with fifteen mem- bers, and wvas then named "The Market Street Presby- terian Church." The first church building, erected mainlv lay men who were not then professed Christians, was begun in May, i814, and dedicated July 30, i815. The first pastor was Rev. James McChord, a brilliant thinker, eloquent speaker, and faithful minister of the gospel of Christ. He died May 29, i820. To honor his memory his people buried his body under the pulpit in which he had preached, set a marble slab in the wall back of the pulpit and inscribed on it the words, "The resur- rection of the just shall unfold his character." Then to still further show their feelings toward him the people on August 26, i823, changed the name of the church to "The McChord Presbyterian Church." There may have been elders in the church before this, but the first elders of whom we have record in "The Min- utes of Session," were ordained September 28, i8i8. They were Ebenezer Sharpe, then a professor in Tran- sylvania University, Joseph C. Breckenridge, afterward attorney-general of the United States, William B. Logan, and William Henry. After the death of Mr. McChord the church was sup- plied chiefly by Dr. Robert H. Bishop, then a professor in Transvlvania University, and afterward president of Miami University, until the summer of i823. A call was then made to Mr. John Breckenridge, a young man who had been chaplain of the National House of Representa- tives during the previous winter, and was then a licentiate of the Presbytery of West Lexington. Mr. Breckenridge became later a minister well known for his ability in all parts of the country. When he became pastor the church had only fifty-eight members, but it had begun to manifest (194) SECOND PRESBYTRRIAN CHURCH. that activity in Christian work which has characterized it ever since. On March 30, i823, according to the arrangements made before that by the session, the Sabbath-school was organized, and the members of the church "Pledged themselves to their God and to one another to endeavor to do something weekly and daily to promote the relig- ious instruction of the youth." The school met at two SECOND PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. o'clock p. m., the teachers were to meet their classes of "four or six scholars" exactly at that hour. A half-hour was to be spent "hearing a small portion of scripture re- peated and endeavoring in a familiar manner to enforce some divine truth upon the understanding and the heart" For seventy-four years the Sabbath-school thus organized 196 THE CHURCH RECORD. has been the very right arm of the church. It has had among its officers and teachers the most intelligent and devoted members of the church, and it has helped to train for service in this and other churches hundreds of useful Christians. Its present superintendent, Mr. John R. Sharpe, has for twenty-two years been in office, and has during all those years been absent only three or four times. Its present primary teacher, Mrs. Dr. H. M. Skillman, has efficiently conducted her department for a still longer period. In October, i824, the first deacons of the church were elected and ordained. Thev were Thomas Prentiss, William S. Ridgely, and James Wallace, and since that time thirty others have filled the deacon's office, and "having served well as deacons have gained to themselves a good standing." The third pastor of the church was Rev. John C. Young, a native of Pennsylvania, a pupil of the celebrated Dr. John M. Mason, and for many years after he left the pastorate of the McChord Church the successful president of Center College at Danville, Kv. Dr. Young's pastor- ate, begun October 27. i828, lasted but two years. It, however, introduced him to the Kentucky Presbyterian church, and opened the way to his great life work as an educator of young men. The fourth pastor was Rev. Robert Davidson, whose service extended from November 3I, i83I, to June 28, i840. Then he resigned to accept the presidency of Tran- sylvania University. Dr. Davidson is known to the church throughout the country by his excellent "History of the Presbyterian Church in the State of Kentucky." It was during his pastorate that Lexington suffered so terribly from the cholera, and we owe to his pen one of our most graphic descriptions of the horrors of that vis- itation. The fifth pastor was Rev. John D. Matthews, elected April 22, 1841. He continued in the office until i845. During the first year of his pastorate the church received fifty-three persons, and reached a total membership of one hundred and sixtv-eight. The sixth pastor was Rev. John H. Brown, a native of Greensburg, Ky., who had studied both law and medi- cine before he entered the ministry. He was "remark- able for his clear, direct style, and he presented truth with a tenderness and pathos which made him eloquent even upon occasions when least expected." His pastor- ate extended from January, i847, to December, 1853. 196 SECOND PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. From Session Book, of October 31, i847, we make the following extract: "Sabbath morning clear and pleasant. The McChord Church, having been completed, was dedicated this fore- noon. Opening praver and reading 6th chapter of 2d Chronicles by Rev. S. V. Marshall. Sermon preached by Rev. John H. Brown from 2d Chronicles, 6th chapter, 40th and i4st verses. Closing prayer bv C. W. Campbell. The audience was large and attentive." Rev. R. G. Branck was the seventh pastor, serving the church for a longer period than any of its other pastors. He was installed February 12, i854, and dis- missed September i8, i867. The church was also greatly blessed during his ministry. But his pastorate closed with the division of the church, Dr. Branck taking with him into the Southern Presbyterian church a part of the members of the Second Church. After the division of the church Rev. Edward H. Camp was pastor from January 26, i868, to September 14, i86. But during this brief pastorate fifty-two persons were added to the church. The next pastor was Rev. G. W. F. Birch. During his pastorate, which extended 'from i870 to i873, the church was again well organized and prepared to go steadily forward in its work. Rev. Robert Christie succeeded Dr. Birch. He was called November i9, 1873, and remained with the church until July 31, i879. During these years the church did excellent work in all its different spheres of activity. Rev. George P. Wilson was ordained and installed pastor of the church October 14, i880, and remained un- til January 24, i884, having accomplished a good work during these opening years of his ministry. The present pastor, Rev. W. S. Fulton, was called March 3, I884, and was installed May 7th, of the same year. Since that time the church has received into her membership over four hundred and sixty persons. Its members, without fairs, festivals or other devices for rais- ing money, have directly given to the work of the church in the city between fifty and sixty thousand dollars, and to mission work outside of the citv thev have contributed between forty-five and fifty thousand dollars. In i876 the Ladies' Missionary Society-vas organized, and for some years past it has been one of the best so- cieties in the whole Presbvterian church. For five years past a flourishing and useful mission 197 THE CHURCH RECORD. has been supported by the church in the west end of the city. This is known as the Campbell Memorial Mission. Erected and presented to the Second Presbyterian Church by a faithful and useful member-Mr. William Campbell-in memory of his beloved wife, Mrs. Serilda Campbell. It was dedicated with interesting religious ceremonies on Sunday, July 13, I892. Mr. Campbell was called to the heavenly rest on last Christmas day, a year ago, and in grateful memory of Mr. Campbell memorial services wvere held in the chapel the Sunday evening following, when the pastor, Rev. William S. Fulton, D. D., presided, preached the sermon, and Elder Dr. Lyman Beecher Todd delivered an appropriate ad- dress. The chapel was filled to its utmost capacity by a deeply impressed and appreciative audience. A prayer meeting is regularly conducted in the chapel on every Thursday evening, by the pastor and elders alternately, and also divine service every Sunday evening, which are well attended by citizens of the vicinity, and growing in interest. A Sabbath-school, numbering over one hundred pupils, is held here every Sunday afternoon, of which Mr. J. Edward Bassett is the attentive and faithful superin- tendent and Miss Ella Williams devoted and untiring assistant superintendent. Much good has been accom- plished by this school in the neighborhood. On Saturday morning an industrial school is con- ducted at this mission, attended by more than eighty scholars and by many ladies of the church, who labor earnestly and faithfully in this department, which has already given gratifying evidence of great usefulness. One of the elders of the church, Dr. John W. Scott, from i87I to I883, supported and superintended a Sab- bath-school for the colored people and in the teaching he was assisted by other members of the church, and at a later date Elder James A. Curry superintended a similar school. From about i864 to i874 members of the church con- ducted a mission Sabbath-school on West Main street in the city school building. During all of its history the church has been composed of a liberal, intelligent and conservatively progressive people. 198 SECOND PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. Biographical Sketch of Pastor. The pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church, Rev. William S. Fulton, is a native of Washington county, Pennsylvania. On his father's side he is of Scotch-Irish stock, and comes of a long line of Presbyterian ministers, his great-great-grandfather being the first Presbyterian minister to settle west of the mountains in Pennsylvania. Dr. -Fulton was educated at Bell's Mills Academy, Washington and Jefferson College, and Lafayette Col- REV. WILLIAM S. FUL'rON, D. D. lege, where he was graduated. His theological training was in the Theological Seminary at Allegheny, when the great teacher, Dr. A. A. Hodge, was there. His first pastorate was in the First Presbyterian Church of Oil City, Pa., a church of several hundred members, re- markable for the fact that it had in it but one gray- haired man, and two gray-haired ladies. This pastorate of five years was signalized by two large ingatherings and bv the unusual number of men who were saved from the drinking habit to become sober, Christian men. The second pastorate was over the First Presbyterian 199 THE CHURCH RECORD. Church of Erie City, Pa., but was not characterized by anv unusual features. After being there four years, Dr. Fulton came to the Second Church, Lexington, where lie has been thirteen vears.

Historical Sketch. By R. H. DAVENPORT. Walnut Hill Presbyterian Church, in Fayette county, has one of the most illustrious histories of any church in Kentucky. It was organized in I785 by Rev. Alex- ander Crawford, whose dust now lies in the old church yard. Rev. Robert Stuart (familiarly known as Father Stuart), was its second pastor. The first preacher I recollect was Alexander Craw- ford, who ministered there many years. He was fol- lowed by Robert Stewart, he by John Lyle, he by R. J. Breckinridge and J. J. Bullock. Stewart and Lyle died during their pastorate of this church. Some of the most prominent members were Dr. Todd, Waller Bullock, Charles McPheeters, Walter Hawkins, Andrew Armstrong, Samuel Bell, Dabney Overton, the Headleys, Will Dunlap, Col. John Dunlap, McClanihan, Mclsaacs, Robert Boggs, Edmund Bullock, Mrs. Col- onel Rhodes, Mrs. Charles Carr, Mrs. Whitney, Mrs. Gordon Hunt (mother of Judge Joe Hunt). Parson Stewart taught school there about i824, and among my old schoolmates were Joe Bullock, Robert. Sam and David Stewart, Lunsford Chiles, Charles Mc- Pheeters, Walter Carr and William Richardson. Joe Bullock was afterward pastor of the church; David and Sam Stewart became preachers; Robert Stewart moved to Springfield, Ill., and was a famous lawyer; Richard- son moved to Illinois, studied law, was elected to the United States Senate as a Democrat, and served in the Senate with John C. Breckinridge. Carr and McPheeters moved to St. Louis. Chiles lived and died at Chilesburg, in Fayette county. The (210) WALNUT-HILL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. writer of this is, I think, the only member of the old school living. There was a singing class taught there. Among those who attended were the Misses Bullock, Carr, Hawkins, Armstrong, Stewart, Simrall. Miss Sarah Bul- lock, who was a sister of Rev. Jos. Bullock and Robert Bullock, married a Mr. Simrall, and was the mother of judge Simrall, of Louisville, and Mayor Simrall of Lex- ington. Mrs. Simrall and the writer of this are the only survivors of that large class. The Sunday-school, con- ducted at that time at the Walnut Hill Church, was the only one held in Fayette county. John C. Breckinridge was an attendant at the old church, lived with Walter Bul- lock and was indoctrinated into the principles of Democ- racy by him, who was recognized as being the best posted man in the country at that time. Gen. John B. Huston taught school in that neighborhood, and it was said, studied for the ministry, but never preached. The pulpit was six feet high from the floor, boxed up, and steps leading up to it. When the preacher stood up you could only see his head, while siting he was entirely hid from the co'igregation. T hc writer gioved to Wood- ford county in i348, and is not very familiar with the history of the church S3ace. It was a gteat county, the best arnd greatest of God's creation lived there, the Dure gospel was preached in the old church, the goo(, linen and wvomnen who lived there have died and gonz to thicir L-ewxard, their descendants have scattered, many of them in the pulpit and in the legislative hall have left their impress on the history of this country, the old church still stands and, as in the past, the pure gospel of Christ is preached there. With what a mixture of pain and pleasure are these recollec- tions dotted down. One moment I can see the old church, the school-room, the boys and girls, and can hear the merry shouts as thev engage in their old-time games, then mv eves fill with tears when I remember that of all that number the writer alone is here, waiting for the summer, trusting that when it comes there will be a reunion of the old Walnut Hill boys and girls in our Father's house above. The old stone church was remodeled a few clears ago, and is a beautiful structure, and though its membership is small, still has regular ministrations of the gospel. 211
