Appleton City, Mo.

Early history from History of St. Clair County 1883

The First Presbyterian Church of Appleton City was organized December 28, 1867 and was
located on the northeast corner of block 8 in said city in 1871.

It's original members were: E.S. Chapin, Sarah Chapin, Julia Fields, H.H. Peipmen and
A.E. Peipmen, his wife, Mrs. Sarah A. Taylor, and Mrs. Esther Long.

Early Pastors were: Revs. Seth G. Clarke, William M. Newton, R. H. Jackson and A.B. Martin.

A frame church building was erected in 1871 at a cost of $3000.

The church, organized above, was in Hudson, Bates County, Missouri. When Appleton City
was laid out, most of the members moved to the new city and decided to move the church building
also, which was done.
