Michigan

Jackson Mi.

Mr. Pierce held many places of honor and trust, among them that of superintendent of public instruction. Later in the fall of 1830 the Rev. Elijah H. Pilcher and the Rev. Mr. Colclazer—both young men—were appointed circuit preachers by the-Methodist conference, and preached in Jacksonburgh once in two weeks-for a year, during which time they held their services at the house of Wm. R. Thompson. Mr. Pilcher's first sermon in this place was on the evening of January 27th, 1831. There is perhaps no man in Michigan who has-preached longer or been more identified with the growth and prosperity of the Methodist church in this state than Elder Pilcher, and to his ministry the society in Jackson is particularly indebted, as his labors here in building up both the society and its church have been of the most zealous-kind on his part, and attended always with a marked degree of success. Mr. Pilcher labored zealously in the Methodist church in Michigan for over thirty-seven years, during which time he was several times located at Jackson, and was for a long time presiding elder of the circuit in which he lived. Mr. Pilcher's standing with the community at large, as-well as in his church, was always such as to reflect the highest degree-of credit upon his labors.
