      Research by Liz Osborn:
      "At the beginning of the Summit County Marriage Records book are several hand-written pages, where the County Clerk or his deputy took down the evidence given by the clergymen stating their legal standing to perform marriages in the State of Ohio."

      On page 15, item # 2, is recorded the following:

      Rev'd Marshall Wilcox
      May 17, 1843
      Marshall Wilcox produced for Record in this office a Licence under seal from the Court of Common Pleas in Medina County authorizing him to solemnize marriages in the State of Ohio as a regular ordained minister of the gospel of the denomination called "Disciples" dated February 9, 1843.
      Attest N. B. Stone Dep. Clerk

      Background informatoin regarding the "Disciples"

      History of the Disciples in Illinois, on pages 206 and 207, in section headed Fulton County states the following:

      Ipava.

      Organized 1842, by William Howard; present membership, 225; value of property, including parsonage, $10,000; Bible-school began 1858; present enrollment, 136.

      As early as 1840 there was quite an emigration from Ohio and Kentucky into the southern part of Fulton County. Most of these were members or friends of the church of Christ. Prominent among them was Wm. P. Howard, then a young man. At first meetings were held from house to house. A schoolhouse of round logs, chinked and daubed with mud and straw, clapboard roof, with puncheon seats and floor, was built. In this meetings were held and the congregation formed. This was four and one-half miles southeast of the site of Ipava. This house was soon too small to accommodate the worshipers, hence a church house was built. It was 30 x 40 feet, with eight feet to the ceiling logs and poles, and roof of lap shingles, riven and shaved. The siding and all finishings were of walnut. This came to be known as the Howard Church. To this congregation Mr. Howard ministered for sixteen years without financial remuneration, supporting his family by his farm labor.

      All the conditions were primitive. The women then did all the spinning and knitting, sewing and weaving--all this in addition to other household cares. In this community. when they would attend the business meeting of the church on Saturday afternoons, they would take their knitting along with them and knit going to and coming from the church. Those living within a radius of two miles of the meetinghouse generally walked. These women would travel barefoot, carrying their shoes and stockings. When near the church they would put on these articles of dress. The time and the circumstances required economy. Those who rode went horseback, or in the big farm-wagons. Sometimes they were drawn by oxen. "Old Sam" and "Brin" were useful in those days. The seat-board was an oak plank, cushioned with a sheepskin. Everybody went to church, including the babies.

      In addition to Mr. Howard, Hughey Stoops and J. W. Hopkins were two ministers of this community who went, at their own charges, preaching the Word--all self-sacrificing and faithful servants of God and men. After Mr. Howard's removal to Texas, in 1857, Wm. Grissom served the congregation, as did also Wm. Lorance.

      By 1867 the building was dilapidated and the congregation disbanded. Part of the members went to Summum and part to the Washington Schoolhouse, where Dr. J. H. Breeden had built up a congregation. In 1869 they purchased the old M. E. chapel in Ipava and repaired it. Thereafter this town was the place of meeting. In addition to Dr. Breeden, P. D. Vermilion, M. T. Cooper and L. M. Robinson served the church. This chapel was not well located; so it was sold and in 1895 a modern structure erected.
