APPLE CREEK
The story of Apple Creek Church, at White Hall, is a heart-breaking example of a bitter epoch in Baptist history in Illinois, although only a few glimpses remain to give us insight. Apple Creek Church was organized in 1822, in White Hall, with eleven members. ..... In November 1830, Apple Creek Church joined the Apple Creek Association, which was organized at Providence Church. Elders Charles Kitchens and Aaron Smith were her messengers. Minutes of the Apple Creek Association show that Apple Creek Church had 39 members in 1833; in 1834, 37; in 1835, 35; in 1836, 39; in 1837, 31; in 1838, 41 (18 were baptized this year). In 1839, however, Apple Creek Church was not represented, and the Association took note of the absence of the church as follows: "Took under consideration the distressed condition of Apple Creek Church, and appointed a committee of brethren, John Davidson, Meshack Browning, Abner Hill, E. L. Cooper, Isom Cranfill, Jacob Godwin, J. V. Rhoads, Ellis Davidson, Nathan Allen, Stephen Wright, B. F. Barnett, and John Taylor, to examine their records and give counsel, and report at the next association." In 1840, after hearing the report of their committee, the Apple Creek Association took the following action, "On motion, Apple Creek Church was dropped from the association, yet leaving the way open for those members who are desirous of obtaining fellowship with any regular Church in union." The nature of the trouble is not stated.
HICKORY GROVE
Hickory Grove Church began meeting as an "arm" of Taylor's Creek Church on January 30, 1830...... Elder Stephen Coonrod was the first pastor. He was followed by Meshack Browning, in 1834, followed by H. H. Witt, in 1842. About this time, the division occurred over the modern mission system, and this church went with those who advocated the new innovations.
