  • Notes 
    • "Minerva Moore Riead was born in Allen County KY on Feb 20, 1819, was married to John Riead at the age of 21 and she professed faith in Christ and was converted about that same year, and united with the Missionary Baptist church at Lively Grove, Washington County IL. She remained a faithful member until the Free Baptist Church was organized in her neighborhood by brother J. C. Gilland when she became a member of this church, as she was 9 miles away from the first church. The family later moved to Perry County IL and sister Riead and her husband moved their membership to the Moore School House, known now as Red Brush, and from this place of worship, they organized and built the church house now known as Bethany Church. She remained a faithful member of this church until some years ago when she left that neighborhood and then became a member of the Free Baptist Church in Tamaroa, and remained a faithful member of that church until God called her to join The Happy Ones around the Throne of God. She bid farewell to her friends and dear children on Feb 13, 1902, her age was 83 years, lacking a few days. She leaves to mourn their loss, five children; three girls and two boys, together with a host of friends. Jesus while our hearts are bleeding over the spoils that death has won, we would at this solemn meeting, calmly say ‘Thy will be done.' By Rev. M. Fox" [1]
