Note: r Ohio, Indiana and a great part of Illinois, and was very successful. During the first year of the joint labors of Hickernell and Keller they reported one hundred and forty conversions, and the second year one hundred and fifty. Jacob Keller at the expiration of two years returned to Pennsylvania and spent the residue of his years as a member in the East Pennsylvania Eldership. His letter containing the report of his labors in Ohio during 1835 conveyed the request of the Ohio brethren for "the privilege of holding a yearly Eldership in Ohio." William Adams, a native of Perry county, Pa., and son of a Presbyterian, was converted under E. West, and emigrated to Ohio in 1835. He was a co-laborer with Keller the second year of the latter's labors in Ohio, when they traveled the Sugar Creek circuit. When Keller and Hickernell went to Ohio they "took up twelve appointments to commence with." By the end of two years "our appointments had swelled to the number of forty." Wayne county was the principal part of their field of work. In 1836 this territory was divided into two circuits, the Eastern and Western, and two ministers were appointed to each. In 1837 three circuits were formed. In 1839 St. Mary's Mission was formed. As many as two hundred converts were reported some of these years. In 1837 there was a revival in Richland county, under the labors of Hickernell and Logue, at which twenty-five converts were reported. A similar work of grace had been reported by Hickernell at "Crooked Run meeting-house," Tuscarawas county, in the Spring of 1836; also in the Fall of 1836, at "Henry Myers', near Strasburg," in the same county. St. Mary's Mission was in Allen and Mercer counties, in the extreme western part of the State, and Hickernell was the missionary in 1839. He had ten appointments this year, and "my mission," he says, "is about fifty miles long." In 1838 there was a circuit in Stark county, with E. Logue as pastor. But two meeting-houses, or bethels, had thus far been reported, viz.: Funk's, in Chester township, [Wayne county], and Crooked Run.
