Green Plain Hicksite Meetinghouse & Cemetery

Green Plain Orthodox Meetinghouse & Cemetery (above)

Green Plain Monthly Meetings of Friends
History of Clark County, Ohio (Chicago: W. H. Beers & Co, 1881) ,pp. 765-766
"The original society by this name was organized in 1822, and worshiped near the residence of Samuel C. Howell, three-fourths of a mile northeast of the village of Selma. Patience Sleleper was one of the first preachers. The records fail to givew any very definite account of the early doings of the meeting, or of its memebership, for the first four years. In 1826, the society, here and elsewhere, on account of a question of doctrine, separated in two bodies (The Hicksite Separation); the one took upon itself the name "Orthodox", the other was afterward known as "Hicksites" ~ that is, followers of the doctrines as proclaimed by Elias Hicks.
Orthodox
This branch of the Green Plain Monthly Meeting of Friends left the Hicksites in possession of the meetinghouse, and of whatever church property owned by the original society a the time of separation (1826), and, for lack of a meetinghouse, the residence of John Wildman was used for that purpose. Friend Wildman's house was one mile east of Selma. This branch at the time of the separation, numbered 236 members. Following is a list of the fathers of the society, who, with their wives and children, were the principal members: Samuel Sleeper, Seth Williams, John Wildman, Cephas Atkinson, Thomas Atkinson, William Vickers, Thomas Embree, Levi Hutton, Jeremiah Warder, Thomas Lewis, Seth Smith, Jackson Allen.
On the 28th day of July 1832, the meeting numbered 220 members. At this date, they determined to build a meetinghouse, and thereupon they purchased for that purpose, of John Bocock and Joshua Engle, one and a half acres of land near the village of Selma, and built theron a frame church, 22X40 feet, one story high, and with the customary partition. They worshiped here till the year 1871, when they built the house they now occupy. It is a brick structure, 40X52 feet, with vestibule front, and is of modern architecture. The cost of this house was $4,300 (see black & white photo above). The present membership is 150. Jacob Baker is the present Pastor.
See, Thomas Hill's Monthly Meetings in North American: A Quaker Index: http://www.quakermeetings.com/viewRecord_display?anID=TST831L (Orthodox)
Green Plain Monthly Meeting (Hicksites)
This branch of the Freinds' Society had its origin with the original Green Plain Monthly Meeting, as elsewhere stated, in 1822. When the separatioh took place in 1826, this branch held the church property, the meetinghouse being near the residence of Samuel Howell three-fourths of a mile northeast of Selma. There is no record showing the strength of this branch when the society separated, but it is probable it was smaller than the branch known as the Orthodox.
They continued worshiping here till the year 1843, when of account of the agitation of the question of slavery, a division took place. A part of the (Hicksite) society held extreme anti-slavery views, and a part were conserative; hence the separation. The extremists (known as Congregationalists) held the church building for several years, and then became extinct, partly by their members joining with one of the other branches of the original society, and partly by their joining other Christian denominations. The building, with the ground on which it stood, was abandoned. The conservative (original Hicksites) portion built a house of worship on the lands of Abel Walker, a mile northeast of the fomer one, completing it in March 1844; their number at this time was 100. The church is of brick, 22X42 feet, and cost a cash outlay of $415.66. The Building Committee was Thomas Merritt, Joshua Harrison, Isaac Warner and Thomas Branson. Hannah P. Wilson and Ann Packer have preached to the society from time to time. The society now numbers nearly one hundred.

My great grandfather William Peacock, a Friend from Indiana, married Lida D. Smith of Greene Township, Clark Co., in 1881 and my grandfather Rolland Peacock was born in Selma in 1882. Is it likely that the Monthly Meeting Records of Green Plain would contain those notices? Where would the MM records be held? The schisms are fascinating! I can be reached via email to dny at mac dot com.

It's me - anonymous - again. After further research, I believe that the Seth Smith mentioned above is the father of Oliver who is the father of Lida Smith, my grandfather Rolland Peacock's mother.

Hello, I attended an antique show this weekend and picked up a book of sermons "Scripture Truths Demonstrated" published 1825. The book is signed inside by John Wildman. There is also a pasted card that says "From the library of Horace. N. Davis" probably pasted in later. I thought the book was just a general book of Christian sermons but with some research found that all the authors of the sermons were "Quaker"
Do you think there is any chance that this book could have belonged to John Wildman?

This is in response to the post by anonymous regarding the book Scripture Truths Demonstrated. I was wondering if you still had this book and would be willing to sell it. My mother is the granddaughter of a Horace N. Davis, friend from Bucks County Pennsylvania. It seems this was likely a book from his library. She collects antiques and I thought this might make a nice gift for her. Thank you,

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.

Karen, my name is Diane Bahler and I am writing a book about the Enoch Moon family and early Quaker history in Tippecanoe County, Indiana. I have a document that shows that Enoch Moon married Elizabeth Lewis at Green-Plain Monthly Meeting. I would really appreciate any information you could give me about them. Also, it looks like you are a real resource in terms of Quaker history. Any books, articles, etc. that you could recommend or link me to would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks! My email is DLBahler88@aol.com

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and very broad for me.

I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
