  • Notes 
    • He was already a minister when he came west and settled in Lee County, Ill, in 1855. He was advanced to eldership in 1858 and put in charge of Rock Creek Congregation in 1860, a position which he held until his death in 1877. As elder of the local church it fell to him to appoint the members of Standing Committee in 1865. He preached at the Franklin Grove, Illinois Church and at the meeting house in Ashton. He kept a family bible which is where much of the Dierdorff genealogy came from. Brethren Encyclopedia says, “He was an elder in Lee County, IL.” p. 384, , ,
