A Tribute to Elder Micajah B. Rowland

Elder Micajah B. Rowland was born in North Carolina in about 1783; he united with the Primitive Baptist Church at age 18 and entered the ministry at age 20. He married Miss Lucy Bradley, a native of Virginia, in 1806 in Kentucky. Elder Rowland was active in the Little River Association of Kentucky before coming to Illinois. He united with Union Church, in Morgan County, in January 1826. He then moved to McDonough County and united with Union Church there in 1833. Next he moved to Hancock County and united first with Middle Creek Church, and in February 1836 with Providence Church. He was dismissed to Cedar Creek Church of Iowa in 1837. At the time of his death, which occurred May 24, 1861, he was a member of Round Prairie Church in the Des Moines River Association. The cause of Christ seemed ever uppermost in his mind, especially the last few years of his life, as was shown by his daily walk.
