SALT CREEK (See also Logan County)

Salt Creek Church was organized sometime between the fall of 1828 and the fall of 1830, and united with the Sangamon Association before the session of May 1831. In May 1831 it reported 31 members, including messengers Philip Snider, S. Wood, and S. Evans.

Salt Creek Church only sent messengers to represent a few times. A committee was sent to labor with the church, but it appears the church was led off into the modern mission system, and united with the Springfield Association when it was formed on the new measures, in 1837. But the church only continued as part of that body a short time.


The records of Plum Creek Church, in Scott County, dated May 1861, read as follows: "Whereas application was made through Bro. William A. Langston, by Brethren and Sisters residing in and around Manito, Mason County, Ill., who holds letters of dismission from this church, to authorize them to sit and transact business as an arm or branch of this church and certify the same to them, therefore, Resolve that said request be granted and appointed Bro. Martin to write and answer the request."
