Miller, Farmer, Hebron W.A. Miller, Farmer, Hebron 1882 History of Mercer and Henderson Counties, Illinois: Latter-Day Saints' Church The third and last of the churches now represented in Millersburg is the Latter-Day Saints' church, not unfrequently called Mormons, but the people of this faith here detest the very idea of polygamy. This doctrine of the church was first preached in the county about 1840, by Elder G.M. Hinkle. The first society in the county was organized in 1861 in Duncan township. The members of this faith then at Millersburg worshiped with the congregation in Duncan township till 1872, when they were organized into a distinct society, which met at private residences for worship for a short time after its organization, and other buildings suitable, till 1876, when they built their present church-house at a cost of $600. The first members were as follows: W.S. Morrison, Joseph Harris, James Vernon, Eliza Vernon, Viola Vernon, J.M. Terry, Mary Terry, Elizabeth, Emma, Stephen, Theresa, James and Nancy Miller, Jasper, Mary, Mary E., Clara, Juliet, Adelaide and Edward Duncan, Hannah Terry, Margaret Brown, William Cardman, Sarah Cardman, Elizabeth Webb. The present members number forty-six. Michael N. Miller Source: The Hebron Register, September 16, 1910, p. 6 Mr. Michael N.
