REMINISCENCES

BY C. A. LAMB.
Written June, 1874

The 27th of August, 1832, the Baptist church at Oakland was recognized by council. Not far from the 1st of May, 1833, Brother Slater of the Ottawa church was ordained at Oakland church by a council called for that purpose June 16, 1833, the church of Bloomfield was organized by a council called for that purpose which met at the house of Dr. Swans. The first of 1834 the church of Northville was organized. The question of receiving members baptized by other denominations came up, and such had been the influx of Baptist ministers and members from the east that that question was overruled in opposition to the rule in the constitution of the association, and since that time the question has not been raised at the organization of any church where I have been present. A Baptist church of West Pontiac was organized in the winter of 1834. A Baptist conference at Walled Lake called a council to recognize them as a Baptist church in gospel order, in February, 1834. This was mostly a colony from Farmington church. In October, 1836, a council was called to sit with the church of Oakland to examine and ordain Brother A. W. Button. He was ordained and for years labored in that vicinity. In the spring of 1837 a council was called by the Walled Lake church to ordain Brother Geo. Penn ell to the gospel ministry.
