Some Wesleyan Methodist and United Christian Church records from Guilford, Randolph (and to a lesser extent Davidson and Montgomery) Counties

North Carolina

Time Period: 1846-1859

 

 

In December 2004, I returned home from a trip to Greensboro, NC pretty sure that the Linthicums who had come to that area from Maryland with the Sherwoods just after the Revolutionary War were my ancestors.  Determined to discover more about these Linthicums  I detailed my findings and my need for more information in a long, wordy letter and launched it off to close to 50 Linthicum families in the Greater Greensboro area using listings from local phone books.

 

I received exactly one reply, a phone call from a Linthicum widow.  A mention that I had made of “my” John W. Linthicum’s obituary from the Greensboro Patriot in 1847 which indicated that he could have had a troubled past with “spirits”, struck a chord with her as she had an old church notebook with a memoir in it for a John W. Linthicum who had turned around a troubled past and become a good church member.  I asked the lady to send me copies of these pages so I could better understand the content; she was kind enough to do so.

 

I had previously contacted the historians of some local churches and I turned to one to help me make sense of what I had received from my new contact.  To make a long story short, the church historian put me in touch with a historian for the Methodist Church, Michael Perdue, who after some study concluded that the copies I had sent to him were copies of Quarterly Conference Minutes from the Guilford Circuit of the Methodist Church.  His words in the e-mail to me were very exciting:  The Guilford Circuit Quarterly Conference Record book which we have a copy of from 1832-65 has some notable gaps. The pastor noted in that record book that there are missing records from the meetings of the Quarterly Conference from 1847 and 1848 and YOUR COPIES ARE FROM THAT MISSING PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!! This is a truly great find because we never find any pre-Civil War Methodist Church records anymore”

 

The historical significance of the book to the church was only icing on the cake for me and my benefactor provided a copy to the church historian.  More importantly to me, there was information in that memoir that probably exists in no other place: the memoir indicated the birth and death dates of John W. Linthicum and indicates that his father was Daniel Linthicum.  I hope that someday this information that came to me by almost pure serendipity will help me to positively identify these men as my 3 and 4th Great Grandfathers.  As this information and other references to Linthicum's in these early North Carolina Methodist church records has great significance to me and could be of interest to other Linthicum researchers, I will make Mr. Perdue's abstraction of this information available as a separate link: Linthicum References in Guilford Circuit Records

 

Upon delving deeper into these "conference minutes", I have reached the conclusion that they truly are not verbatim minutes but rather a careful reconstruction of minutes or personal notes and I feel that it is highly unlikely that this compilation was done by anybody other than Reverend Daniel Wilson (1813-1898), a son of John Wilson and Elizabeth Linthicum.  The dates on the page numbered “1” by my source are somewhat confusing as Daniel Wilson appears to have been an Indiana by that time.  I will make more mention of Daniel Wilson in the Linthicum specific link.  What is obvious is that somehow the notebook came into the possession of the Linthicum family-most likely because of the John Linthicum memoir-and has been kept as a genuine family treasure until this day.

 

Although there are few hard facts about the many individuals named in these records, they do establish these individuals within certain counties and associated with certain churches and locations within the time frame of these records.  As these records came to me by almost pure chance and are not likely to ever be made public in any other form, I feel some obligation to share this information.  As I do not feel qualified to completely transcribe the records and owing to the fact that some portions might be a bit controversial and the choice on my part of a wrong word could cast an undue aspersion, I have chosen to do the following:

 

I will include Mr. Perdue's “Methodist Church primer” and with just enough interpretation to keep things coherent, I will list only names, dates and places to the best of my ability.  Some names appear several times on any given page or day; I will list the names in the order of appearance with only one listing per name.  In some cases I had to guess a bit at a name; often I cheated and looked at 1850 census records for the area to aid me in coming up with some likely surnames.  The listings are roughly indexed and “control –F” search for an approximation of the name or place you are seeking may be helpful.  Only looking beyond the summary to the scans of the original records will yield whatever conclusion you choose to reach.

 

The pages were numbered as copied by my source.  There are a few pages where some data has obviously been obscured and others where blank areas have been used as a “doodle pad” over the years.  My source prefers to remain anonymous and I must honor that request and have subsequently have obscured a few doodles that I was able to identify to specific family members from a few generations ago.

 

Any individual studying these records carefully will likely find other discrepancies and inconsistencies that led me to my conclusion that these records are a reconstruction rather than actual meeting minutes although some entries may indeed just be actual minutes rewritten.  We must bear in mind in all examinations of old records that they did not have copy machines.

 

Michael Perdue, a former Historian for the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, offered these insights into Church history and structure in NC during this era:  This Guilford Circuit was the result of a division over slavery within the original Guilford Circuit of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South (MECS) of the North Carolina Conference in 1846. Those who pulled out of the MECS formed the Guilford Circuit of the “Union Methodist Church.”  In December 1846 this group assumed the name and adopted the discipline of the Wesleyan Methodist Church. In August 1858 this group pulled out of the Wesleyan Methodists and adopted the Constitution of the United Christian Church. Now to explain a few terms:

 

'Exhorter' was a man in the local church who might assist the assigned minister with holding services. He might read the scriptures and make a brief application or homily based on that reading- but was NOT a pastor. The nearest equivalent we have to that in the Methodist Church today would be a lay leader or speaker.

 

'Class Leader'- In early days of Methodism a class could be considered as a congregation or in larger churches a portion or segment of a congregation. A leader was assigned to each class and that leader would inquire into the spiritual well-being of its members and would lead in prayers and meetings of said group. The need for class meetings died out after the Civil War and with the growth and development of the Sunday School.

 

'Local Pastor'- An LP was a member of the local church who desired to preach but did not want to enter the itinerant or traveling ministry. He could marry people and preach and hold services such as funerals and fill in for ill pastors but administering the sacraments they usually did not do. The Methodist Conferences did not keep any records on local pastors since they were not ministers in full connection and did not travel the circuits.
