>Siloam church is located about six miles N.W. of Cadiz and can be described
>as "a little white church on a great big hill." The first meeting of the
>people was held in a log cabin a short distance from the present church in
>1878. After the meeting it was decided to erect a church and the deed was
>given Dec 02, 1878. there were 60 charter members. The first trustees
were
>W.T. STONE, CHARLES MORRIS, P.H. CAIN, JOHN J. ALEXANDER AND J.M. SHEPHERD.
>The church was dedicated Jun 07, 1879 and the sermon was preached by
BOSLEY,
>who was presiding elder at that time. The church was placed on the
Wallonia
>work with the parsonage at Wallonia. BROTHER BINGHAM was the first leader
>of Siloam. The following are a number of pastors: EDWARDS, EDRINGTON,
>STUBBLEFIELD, AND R.T. MCCONNELL. Later siloam was changed from Wallonia
>work to the Cadiz Circuit when PATE became pastor. When BRO. BOGGESS
became
>the pastor, the parsonage was changed from wallonia to Canton. Then the
>next pastors were MITCHELL, THOMPSON, GIBSON, GOODMAN, PAUGHBURN, BRANDON
>then LUCY and at this time the parsonage at Canton was sold and the
present
>on in cadiz was bought. The next pastor's were K.K. ANDERSON, RICHARDSON,
>SPEARS, R.T. MCCONNELL again, then MITCHELL again, GILLETTE, E.S. BOGGESS
>again, BILL, PENICK, WHEELER, NAPIER and of course the present one, BRO.
>ALLEN. it is interesting to note that there are only three people now
>living who were charter members of Siloam. They are Mrs. SENIE STONE, MRS,
>AD ALEXANDER AND MRS. MAT ALEXANDER PRATHER. Siloam has sent out three
>preachers. They were J.J. ALEXANDER, who was licensed to preach in 1882,
>then T.V. JOINER was licensed to preach and joined the Conference. Later
>A.D. LITCHFIELD was sent out to preach from Siloam. The Epworth League was
>organized last year with a membership of 32. The stewards are LOUIS CAIN,
>OLLIE MORRIS and WES BANISTER. In conclusion, Siloam extends to each and
>every one an invitation to visit her.
