5 "The tribe of Christians, so-called,
are not extinct, even to this day." So
wrote the learned Josephus some 40 or
50 years after Christ's death. Josephus
seemed to think it strange that loyalty
to Christ should last so long. But the
Lord is their ' Shepherd, and, on the
whole, He has led His people through
green pastures and beside the still
Sunday school teaching, or its equiv
alent, has been in the world for a cou
ple of . thousand of years. We are told
that "was an important part of the
early Jewish educational system."
And the Roman Catholic church and
the reformers in its membership have
from time to time taught their chil
dren in the scriptures. Martin Luther
was, of all things, a teacher, and says:
"When schools prosper, the church re
mains righteous and her doctrines
pure. Young pupils and stu
dents are seed and source of the
church. If we were dead, whence would
come our successors, if not from the
schools? For the sake of the church
we must have and maintain Christian
schools. They may not appeal1 attrac
tive, but are useful and necessary."
Sunday schools, somewhat the same
as we have them today, have been held
here and there, in America as well as
in' Europe, but no effort at striving
systematically to organize a Sunday
school in every church was made until
a Mr. Robert Raikes of Gloucester,
England, took hold of the idea in A.
D. 1780. It was the impulse that he
gave the work that reached Rock Is
land county 60 years later. Not that
it took CO years for the good people
to see any good in a Sunday school,
hut the "westward course of empire"
had not yet reached so far into this
western paradise. Rock Island county
was then and for decades afterward
still a place "where every prospect
pleases and only man is vile."
Braved Dnnarer From Inillaux.
A lady 91 "years' young" and still
hearty and who came here in A. D.
1836, told me that one William Bell
used to walk from his home in a little
village called "Farmington" (Ferrens
burg), up the river, to a settlement of
farmers, where he was their "class
leader," every Sunday, and that his
wife worried considerably over these
trips of his. She feared the Indians
would waylay and kill him. It fs writ
ten that this settlement had the first
Sunday school in Rock Island county,
and that my "91 years young" inform
ant's husband was its first superin
tendent, and that it was organized in
1835, "probably in June" of that year.
How charmingly interesting. Let us
digress Just a second. Our young su
perintendent had arrived from Pennsyl
vania, only that year; took up land,
and in the autumn was to return to the
old Keystone state to marry my in
formant. But "man proposes," etc
The old Mississippi froze up, and there
was no wedding until the following
May; then a three weeks' trip down
the Ohio and up our old river, brought
the couple back to the settlement, and
to the Sunday school. We will all re
joice in the fact that the good Lord re
warded this patriarchal superintendent
by making one of his sons a bishop in
the Methodist Episcopal church, and
this bishop today is touching the lives
of thousands, perhaps we should say
millions, of the people of Africa, for
IVFlln n Common nme.
This Sunday school was held in the
" home of the senior Joel Wells; the
superintendent was Michael J. Hart
zell. They tell us that at that time a
stranger could call everyone he met
"Mr. Wells" and he would not be
wrong more than half the time. Today
a stranger might call anyone he meets
on those same grounds either "Mr.
Johnson." "Mr. Olson," or "Mr. Swan-
son," and be fairly sure of being right
We are told that all history is con
nected. The writer, while visiting a
- fine old patriarch, also some "90 years
young," in Moline last week, hunting
material for this poor paper, glanced
up to the large clock to see the time
of day. - "That clock," said Mr. Hub
bard, "is from the old Joel Wells, Sr.'s,
home" the home of the first Sunday
school of Rock Island, county. It would
seem that everything connected with
a Sunday school is continuously and
It sounded strange to hear Mr. Hub
bard tell of driving to Galena to pur
chase a lot, from a German there, on
' which to build the First Congregational

Flrxt Lender at Port Byron.
Dr. Jeremiah H. Lyford was the first
superintendent of Sunday school at
Port Byron; and again the zeal of true
Christian spirit shows itself. He came
here in 1S3G. In time the Methodist
church was under construction, and,
as is frequently the case, there was a
shortage of funds for carrying on the
building. The doctor had assembled
lumber for a new residence for hinjself
and family, but the Lord's business
was first; personal comfort was sacri
ficed; the doctor and his wife donated
the lumber for the completion of the
church, and the new residence awaited
"a more favorable time." This home
made a further sacrifice when Eugene
Lyford, a son.', who had in Hie course
of time been elected superintendent of
the same Sunday school, resigned his
office, went to war, arid was killed in
battle at Stone River. In its first
years this Methodist church was pre
sided over by Elder Rutledge, a Bap
tist minister from across the river.
The first Sunday school in Rock
Island we mean, of course, what
was afterward called Rock Island, for
it was then called Stephenson was a
union school, "organized in 1S37, in an
old frame school house, on the site of
which the Second ward school building
now stands, just below the court house.
Mr. Brackett, an Episcopalian from
Philadelphia, and a Mr. Coffman were
the leaders, the former being superin
tendent, reelected for one year, when.
because of failing health, he returned
to his eastern home. John Morse fol
lowed as superintendent; and was sue
cessively reelected until the fall of
T843, when he died at the home of
Rev. Samuel Cleland, with whom he
boarded. , This union Sunday
school was moved, probably in 1839 or
1840, to 'the more commodious and bet
ter furnished school room of the Rock
Island university,' which was
the large frame building that stood un
til a few years-ago at the northeast
corner of. Third avenue and Eleventh
"This union school was moved, as
near as I can learn, in 1841 or 1842,
from Mr. Woodruff's university school
room to a room over the postoffice in
the old frame building torn down some
"In 1843 another union Sunday school
was organized in an old building north
of the present site of the Harper house.
Mr. Talcott of the New School Presby
terians was made superintendent, the
division into old and new school hav
ing just been made. Mr. Talcott short
ly after located on Rock river, and the
formation of denominational schools In
1844 absorbed this school.
"In the older union school, upon the
death of John Morse in the fall of
1843, Mr. Spring became ' superintend
ent and remained in charge until 1847,
when Marcus B. Osborne was elected.
Mr. Spring was afterward superintend
ent of the Old School Presbyterian
Sunday school upon its formation in
1847, and continued in charge until he
removed to Chicago. This veteran
Sunday school worker left his impress
upon the Sunday school, and all his
old associates, by word or letter, speak
Baptlatn Orjtnnlve In 1844.
"The Baptists organized a school in
1844 in a building which stood about
the middle of the block, on the north
side of Second avenue, between Eigh
teenth and Nineteenth streets. A tem
porary organization was effected March
5, and Horace Anthony was elected su
perintendent, Ezra Fisher assistant su
perintendent, and Harmon O. Reynolds
secretary and librarian. Mr. Reynolds
had been converted in March, 1843,
and had joined the Baptist church
The school was made auxiliary to the
American Sunday School Union, which
by resolution had proffered aid to all
schools so organized in this, then,
great wilderness of the Mississippi
"March 18, 1845, the school dissolved
its connection with the American Sun
day school Union and elected Harmon
G. Reynolds superintendent and John
A. Boyer assistant superintendent. In
the fall of 1844 the Methodists had
completed their brick church on the
northwest corner of the public square,
just east of the Harper house. Rev.
Isaac Searles was the new pastor. At
a meeting called to organize a Sunday
school, C. A. Spring, as a representa
tive of the American Sunday School
Union, was present, and seems to have
acted as organizer." (From "Fifty
Years of Methodism").
We have seen that the first Sunday
school . superintendent of the Moline
school was blessed by having a son
raised to the high office of bishop of
the Methodist church. Now the new
Sunday school of the First Methodist
church of Rock Island elects as its
superintendent J. W. Van Sant, whose
son was destined to be governor of
Minnesota, and not merely governor,
but one of an especially strong moral
fiber. Let us say "thanks to the Sun

The Presbyterians . of Edgingtou
township "organized in the Dunlap
cabin in the fall of 1837. : The organiz
ation was effected by Rev. John Mont
gomery, an itinerant home missionary,
by appointment of the presbytery of
Schuyler. Church services were held
once a month for several years, and
sometimes at longer intervals, in the
Dunlap cabin during the winter months
and in the barn in the summer. The
Sunday school was organized in 1844,
and was kept in operation only
through the summer months until 18C5,
since which time the school has been
kept open 12 months ' of the year
The years of 1835 and 1836 were
profitable years for the Sunday schools
of the county, that were to be. We
have seen that Michael J. Hartzell,
Joseph Dunlap and Dr. Jeremiah H.
Lyford came during this time. An
other "father in Israel" who arrived
at this time was John Walker of Canoe
Creek township, ort whose farm the
Enterprise LTnited Brethren church is
located. Strong in the faith, the first
Sunday school of this part of the coun
try was organized in his barn by the
United Brethren. Peter Curtis was
its members moving away. Rock river '
bottoms had attracted them. There the
elder Hartzell had erected a two-story
log cabin, with one large room built
especially for a place of worship for
the neighboring settlers. This was
built the year of their arrival, in 1835,
and here every Thursday night a pray
er meeting was held. The circuit rider
preached periodically, and when quar
terly meetings were held, the beds and
other furniture of the house were mov
ed out, so as to make room for the
congregation.- The Sunday school,
meanwhile, was dropped, until iu 1843,
when a union school was organized by
the Methodists and Congregationalists,
and their meetings were held in the
Moline school house, a brick building,
a part of which still exists as a part
of the Moline city hall The following
is taken from the writings of one of
the first ministers of Moline, as fol
The memories connected with that
old school house should be dear to
every pioneer, and it should receive
the respect and gratitude of every in
habitant of Moline. It was built in
1843, and though now shamefully neg
lected and suffered to decay, like too
many public benefactors, yet served
its day and generation nobly. For a
term of years it was the center from
which emanated an influence that
shaped and molded the social charac
ter of the whole community. It was
brought directly in connection with the
heart and sympathies of the people
Its walls were crowded from Sabbath
to Sabbath, and from evening to even
ing. There were discussed, with thrill
ing interest, the great questions of pol
itics, of temperance, of human free
dom, of social reform, and of practical
religion. The good which that old
brick school house conferred upon Mo
line will never cease to be felt." (From
"Fifty Years of First Congregational
ism in Moline").
Swedixh School In 1KT.O.
The Swedish immigration to our
country began in 1S49, and on Dec. 1,
1850, a Swedish Lutheran congregation
was organized. For six years this con
gregation was without a regular pas
tor, but a Sunday School was main
tained. Its home was a 36x40x15 foot
frame structure, located on the site of
the present large brick church. The
world-famous singer, Jenny Liud,,-con
tributed very generously to this little
church, and a steamboat bell was pur
chased and swung in the little steeple.
The people, it is saidt were greatly de
lighted to hear their "bell call them to
their house of worship, and the same
bell is now doing dutv at the Swedish
cbureh-at 'Port By rent- .
The Swedish MefTiodist church was
also organized in 1850, and its Sunday
school, of course, was an important
part of the work.
There are features of the pioneer
Sunday school that have disappeared.
The Sunday school library is one of
them. An aged lady told me of the en
joyment she had in -reading the books
from the Sunday school library. To
day we hear little of this feature, and
how to stock the school with books
has ceased to be a problem. The mem
orizing of scriptures was, it seems, a
universal custom, prizes being given
for number of verses learned. Mrs.
W. H. H. Dow tells of receiving a lit
tle red-covered testament as such a
prize. She had committed the first
chapter of John. E. B. McKown of
our county executive committee won a
bible. He recited lfi8 verses of scrip

chapters of Matthew so he could give

Dr. -Lyford Quoted.
Dr. W. H. Lyford of Port Byron, un
der date of Sept. 16, 190S, and writing
of the first school of Port Byron in
the '40's, says:
The scholars were only young peo
ple no adults. Our text books were
the bible and 'Union Question- Book.'
The leaflets distributed were the 'Well
Spring' and the 'Sunday School Advo
cate We had to study and learn the
lessons in the 'Question Book and
commit to memory verses in the bible.
For the latter, we received prizes at
the end of the year, according to our
HiHrcno and wnrlr ciirli ac liiltlr.c fa
taments. cards, etc. Some of us. and I
more especially the girls, would be able
to recite verses, page after page, ap
parently without effort on their part.
This faithfulness of the scholar was
rewarded to all in after life."
Ex-Gcvernor Van Sant of Minneapo
lis writes under date of Sept. 19, 1908,
among other things, as follows: "I re
gret very much that the time is so
limited, and that I cannot - prepare
something for you. I was born in Rock
Island, and my first school was the
Rock Island Sunday school, and my
mother has often told me that when
too young to go to church and Sunday
school, she carried me in her arms. I
remember very well, too, when Sunday
school was held in the old church on
the corner next to the Harper house.
Sunday school was in the room below,
and church above. Sunday school room
was used during the week for public
school. - I can just say in this
connection that the impressions made
upon my mind during those early days
in Rock Island Sunday school hve re
mained with me and made me a better
man on account of the associations of
the Rock- Island Sunday school and
church. As you perhaps
know, ray father and mother were
members-of the Methodist church for
many, many years before they died
and always took an active interest in
the Sunday school and believed it to be
a great recruiting station for the church
and most helpful to its future work."
From Illlnoin CMy Pioneer.
Mrs. William Tyler of Illinois City
writes under date of Sept. 19, 1908, as
follows: "We had no lesson helps in
those days, especially in the country
Sunday schools. We began at one
end of the new testament, say second
chapter of Matthewr and wfnt a. chap
ter or two till close of school. Happy
the day that could find some one will
ing to-open the school with prayer; for
our officers were chosen from the best,
whether professing Christians or not.
Teachers in the same way. One of the
main features was committing to mem
ory verses, chapters, and in many in
stances books of the bible; the prize,
a copy of the new testament. Sunday
school celebrations, so staled in those
days, were popular for some years.
Long tables spread in the grove, chil
dren marched around and ranged
around the tables, waited upon by the
older people. Those were held mostly
upon the 4th of July. You can imagine
the baskets laden with the good things
of the farm, packed into the lumber
wagons. But the one or two long ta
bles came into disrepute on account of
some drawbacks, such as changing of
dishes, table cloths, etc.
Later a picnic dinner became more
popular, and after churches were es
tablished more strictness was observed

The Tone That Lingers in Memory
THE full, be'J-like tone of the Kimball Piano lingers long in
memory. It is different, richer, sweeter, more refined than any
other. There are reasons for this marvelous quality." It lies in
the superiority of material and in the conscientious care bestowed on
the construction of ihe Kimball by the liighest class of skilled piano
builders. That is why we can give you the strongest guarantee for
durability and musical satisfaction.
The piano you purchase, to fce satlcfactory, must be constructed to withstand the
