Since 1839, Buried at
LONG AND ACTIVE CAREER
Born in England 83 Years Ago, and
Died at Home of Daughter
Edgington, March C At the home
of his daughter, in Ipava, Rev. John
Wood, who was an early settler of Rock
Island county, died Tuesday, Feb. 27,
after an illness of about a week, due to
cold on the lungs and internal paraly
sis, at the age of S3 years, 4 month3
and 24 days.
Funeral services were held in Ipava
Thursday, March 1, conducted by the
local pastors of the Presbyterian.
Christian and Free Methodist church
es, and at 2 p. m. Friday, at Zion M.
E. church, near Edgington, where Rev.
Henry Brink, of Alpha, pronounced 1
fitting eulogy and gave an impressive
discourse upon the lessons of his life
and services to the church and com
munity. The remains were laid to
rest beside those of his wife in the old
Dunlap cemetery, near Edgington, and
the old home place of the family, in
the presence of children, grand-children,
and other relatives, old neigh
bors and friends.
Skrtcli of Career.
John Wood, son of Thomas and Mary
Wood, was born in Bolton, Lancashire.
England. Oct. 3, 1S22, and was their
only child. His father was a manufac
turer of goods in Wigan and Up Holland
England, about 12 miles from Bolton,
in whose mills he learned the trade of
carding and spinning. In 1S37 he left
England with his father to come to
the United States. They set sail from
Liverpool Oct. 2, and landed in New-
York Jan. 2, 1S3S, having been on the
ocean 12 weeks and 6 days. He was
just entering upon his 10th year, and
ever afterward carried a vivid recollec
tion of his experiences on the ocean.
They were in some severe storms, dur
ing one of which the waves ran very
high and a quarter of a mile from crest
to crest. The sails were torn from the
masts and the vessel was turned on its
side and sprung a leak, but hard work
at the pumps saved it from sinking. It
was the worst storm the captain had
seen in 24 years. To the boy the peril
was frightful and led to serious re
solves. He had early religious train
ing. His mother carried him to Meth
odist meetings when a child. She was
a devout woman and taught him to
sing hymns. He kept a love-feast tick- J
et with his mother's name on it and
the words, "Unto you that fear My
name will the Sun of Righteousness
arise with healing in His wings." The
voyage was so prolonged that the pas-

In this country the journey was con
tinued from New York to Pittsburg,
where they remained during the win
ter, the river being frozen so that they
could not travel farther west by water,
which they wished to do, as traveling
overland was tedious. It was before
even the largest cities were connected
by railroads. In the spring of 1838
they came on to St. Louis, and there
saw the famous Indian, Black Hawk,
and a company of his warriors. Not
finding a desirable location there, his
father came the same spring to Drury
township. Rock Island county, this
state, where he settled with his fam
ily. lliubrneeai the Clinrrh.
In the fall of 1S39 the subject of
this sketch, then at the most critical
period of his religious life, was invited
by one of the neighbors to go with
them to a campmeeting held near Swe
dona, then called Richland Grove, at
which meeting he was converted. Rev.
Berryman was presiding elder. Rev.
Wilson Pitner, son-in-law of Peter
Cartwright, was one of the preachers
present. He was brought under con
viction by the singing, by two men, of
the hymn, "O, How Happy Are They
Who Their Savior Obey." By the in
vitation of the pastor, a Rev. Smith,
he went to the altar, and the same
night united with the church. At home
he attended regularly a cottage prayer
meeting held in the house of a man
who was a Baptist and his wife a Meth
odist. The nearest preaching point
was at Eliza Creek about eight miles
distant. He frequently walked to serv
ices at that place until church services
were established at Illinois City four
miles from where they lived, 11 miles
west of Edgington, near which latter
place he afterward lived many years
with his own family. In the earlier
years he went on horseback to attend
the Presbyterian church in Edgington,
as well as to other services. This-
catholicity of spirit regarding other de
nominations than the one to which he
belonged was ever characteristic of
him. Previous to his marriage to Miss
Margaret Dunlap, at Edg:ngton, in
1845, he had been leader of the Meth
odist class for some time at Illinois
Cit3 After marriage he lived m the
Dunlap settlement, as the Edgington
community was originally called, mov
ing after two years onto land obtained
from his wife's father, Joseph Dunlap
By his industry, and through means
received from his father, the property
was much improved. This was the fam
ily residence about twenty years.
During the pastorate of Rev. Joseph
Kirkpatrick of the Methodist church
he was licensed to exhort. The li
cense was signed by Rev. Richard Ha
nev. He was afterward licensed to
preach, and was eventually ordained a
local elder, was sent as a supply to
the Knoxville circuit when his eldest
son, Rev. T. J. Wood, was but a child.
Rev. Isaac Pool was senior preacher
on .the work at this time. It required
four weeks to complete the circuit,
which embraced Galesburg, Abingdon
and Oxford (now Viola). Some re
markable revivals attended his minis
try. There were instances of old-time
shouting and violent demonstrations.
He was afterward a supply (Rev.
John Chandler, presiding elder) on the
Indian town circuit, with Tiskilwa as
the main point. Here he was taken
sick and had to give up his work. Rev.
Shcppard taking his place. At Sun
beam, where he was afterward sent,
there were 24 conversions (Rev. Ros
well Morse, presiding elder). He was
also sent to Wyoming with Rev. Jacob
Matthews. He preached also at Osceo
la and Bradford. He did not move his
family to any point but Knoxville. Dur
ing the civil war he took the place of
the pastor on the Milan work, the lat
ter having been appointed on the
christian commission. An incident
shows his interest in young men and
his wisdom in counsel. Joseph C.
Hartzeil, now bishop to Africa, when a j
young man, asked his advice whether
he should enter at once upon the work
of the ministry, as his presiding elder
desired him to do, or seek further edu
cation by way of preparation. He
said to him:
"Get a thorough education first;
then you will not be embarrassed in
the presence of the learned, and you
will be able to converse with them in
telligently upon any subject." The ad
vice was taken, and his subsequent
career shows the wisdom of it.
About the year 1SC6 he, with his
family, moved to Abingdon, to get bet
ter school advantages for his children.
Here he remained about eighteen years,
during which time he took an active
interest in the regular work of the lo
cal church and also in the special meet
ings held weekly for several years,
mainly in cottages, for the promotion
of holiness. For a year he assisted
Rev. Isaiah Reed, of the Presbyterian
church, in evangelistic work. He fre
quently went with young men of Hcd
ding college, who were preparing for
the ministry, to their schoolhouse ap
pointments, as they were sent out by
the college ministerial association.
Wan Kree 51ethodlM.
For a time he was a member of the
Free Methodist church and, .before
leaving Abingdon, served a Free Meth
odist congregation In Galva one year
as pastor. With his wife he attended
camp meetings, holiness conventions,
and special efforts at home and in j
many other places, and was always 1
deeply interested In the promotion of
vital godliness. He gave freely to the
work of the church and for the sup
port of educational and benevolent in
stitutions. After leaving Abingdon, in 1884, one
fall and . winter were spent with the
family of his son, Fletcher, in Kansas,
at Edgington, and six years in Galva.
Afterward two years with Mrs. M. S.
Smith, a daughter, in Nebraska, then
eight years in Prairie City, where his
wife died March 17, 1800. Since that
time he has been among his children,
most of the time for three years with
his son, Thomas, the past three years
and five months with his daughter,
Mrs. W. R. Warner. For about ten
years afflicted with palsy agitans, and
with increasing years, he has been in
capacitated for active work of any
kind most of the time and for several
years has needed almost constant at
tendance. Of eight Children, the first-born, Mary
Sophia, did not survive infancy, and j
Charles W., the youngest son, died in
July of the past year. Six children
survive him, namely. Rev. T. J. Wood,

Boston; John Fletcher, of Parsons,
