Bachelor Creek Christian Church 

Joseph Car\ ■ >ilas Stone resj ■-■■; ,heir deaconship 
the first Lord's Day in Jan. 1863, Th< > w s a notion made 
by brother Elizur Lasseile and others that the C urch pro- 
ceed to Select Elders and Deacons for this Church according- 
ly. Bros. Ezekial Bos Son/, Levi L. Cox, L. Shortridge, and 
John S.B. Carothers were chosen Elders On this Occasion 
Father Hubbard the only hid. previous to that time proceeded 
to make some scurrillous remarks upon the qualifications, of 
Br. L. Shortridge intending to prejudice the brethren against 
him as afterward appeared upon trial of the case. There be- 
ing about 70 members present, 66 of whom voted for L. Bhort- 
ridge (youths at least some not rising) he was eleeteel de- 
clared . elected. 

The Church then proceeded to choose Deacons. Upon motion 
the following brethren were chosen Joseph Co::, Elisur Lassa- 
lle, Peter Garien, Bro. Lasselle was made Treasurer. Bro. 
Shortridge was elected by the Elders as Clerk of their pro- 
ceedings and of the congregation in all matters of record. 

On the following Tuesday evening the Church met for the 
purpose of harmonizing all the discordant element, if possi- 
ble, and come into clear fellowship, './hereupon Brother 
Shortridge and Bather Hubbard had some private conversation 
and it was found impossible for them to settle the difficul- 
ty started by Father Hubbard the previous Lord's Day, in the 
charges and statements he made against Bro. S. & the previ- 
ous unity of the church. 

Bro. Shortridge then proceeded to lay the whole case be- 
for the Elders present. L.L. Cox, J.3.B. Crothers and 
Egekial Cox, who having been advised in all the premises 
Decided that Father Hubbard was guilty of misrepresentation 
and falsehood, recommended the brethren vo withdraw from him 
which the church did by a vote of 27 to 11. Many not voting 
at all. 

V/e generally felt sorry for Father Hubbard on the account 
of his age and former general respectability and on the recom- 
mendation of L. Shortridge to and through Bro. Winfield, on 
the 15th of February the church proceeded to restore Bro. Sam- 
uel Hubbard to membership without the office of Eld. Father 
Hubbard having previously made some acknowledgements. 

May the Lord help us all to live in and cultivate peace. 

Lemuel Shortridge, Clerk 

P.S. A copy of the proceedings of the Elders is preserved 
with this record. 

V/e the undersigned after having the matters investigated 
on the night of thg 31st of Dec. I062 find that Bro. Samuel 
Hubbard guilty of the following charges . 

1st. Of making public statements two weeks ago last 
Lord's Day of a private conversation had between himself 
and brother L. Shortridge without his, (Brother Shortridge) 
consent. 

— ± 1— 



Bachelor Creek Christian Church 

2nd. Of making statements last Lord's Day of a wicked 
and malicious character aiming to prejudice the brethren 
against brother Shortridge (L) wifekenfe-his in stating that 
the Church was in peace and quietude up to last August 1B62 
when Bro. Shortridge came here and Stirred up strife and ano- 
misity in the Church. 

3rd. Of misrepresentation, prevarication and falsehood 
in making the statements above named. In view of these facts 
we believe him to be guilty, unworthy of the Fellowship of 
the Church of Christ, 

We therefore recommer.d the Congregation to withdraw their 
fellowship from him. This Jan. 20 1363 • 

This they did by a vote of 27 to 11. w/DOM

vices commenced on Saturday evening before the 1st Sunday in 
Octo 1362. Three disccurses were preached at that time also

HANNA CEMETERY? WABASH. 
^D. Aug/2/07-3-1. ? 

Wabash, after seventy-two years, succeeded to securing 
q deed to the Hanna Cemetery, which contained one and a half 
acres. 

A §uit Claim Deed was giver, by the following heirs: 

Mr. & Mrs. Hugh Hanna, 

Mr. & Mrs. James '.Varren Hanna, Chicago. 

Mr. & Mrs. Alexander L. Tyre, 

Hi'. & Mrs. James D. Conner, 

Mr. & Mrs. H.H.Conner, 

Mr. & Mrs. Jemies D. Conner, Jr., 

Mr. & Mrs. 0. '7. Conner, 

Mrs. Ada C. Miles, 

Miss Rosalind Conner. 

There were probably more than five hundred burials in 
the cemetery. Because no deed had aver been given for the 
cemetery the city could not move the bodies to a new location 
where the graves would be cared for. 

After the deed was signed Mayor Murphjt with sevelar helpers 
spent an entire Sunday at the cemetery recording the names and 
dates that were recorded on the stones that remained, ^ome of 
the markers had fallen and were entirely overgrown with grass 
and T .veeds. Many were broken past all deciphering ana many 
graves had no markers at all. The two hundred fifty-six names 
they secured vers only a part of them. It is said that many 
workers on the '."abash Valley Railroad, who died during a 
cholera epidemic, v;-ere ouriad there in the fifties.
