Excerpt from book:
CHAPTER III. THE OLD INDIANA CONFERENCE, 1832-1844. If any single period in the history of Indiana Methodism stands out more conspicuously than any other, it is the period from 1832 to 1844, the years of the life of the old Indiana Conference. These are notable years because of the outstanding leadership; when such men as Allen Wiley, James Havens, Matthew Simpson and Edward R. Ames were in their prime. These were years also of conspicuous progress in the church throughout the State. When the Indiana Conference met for its first session it had a membership of thirty- nine preachers, five presiding elders' districts, and the church membership in the state numbered 19,853; in 1844, the year marking the close of the period, there were 206 preachers, sixteen districts and 67,118 members. For many, however, these years in the history of Indiana Methodism are rendered the more interesting because they mark the inception and the founding of Indiana Asbury University, now DePauw University. The old Indiana Conference and the founding of this next to the oldest living Methodist College in the old Northwest, are inseparably connected, and the history of both during these early years belong together. The first session of the Indiana Conference met in New Albany on October 17, 1832, Bishop Joshua Soule presiding. Eighteen members were present at the first roll call, and responded to their names in the following order: Allen Wiley, Joseph Tarkington, John Kern, Daniel Anderson, Samuel C. Cooper, George Locke, James Havens, Asa Beck, Charles Bonner, John T. Johnson, William Shanks, C. W. Ruter, James Armstrong, William H. Smith, Enoch G. Wood, James Scott,Richard S. Robinson and Boyd Phelps. C. W. Ruter was elected secretary of the Conference, which position he held continuously until ...
