Item Description
  Statement of William Walker, member of Wyandot Nation
Author: Walker, William
Date: January 16, 1861

William Walker, a member of the Wyandot Nation, described the political history of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Kansas Territory. Walker stated that a missionary had accompanied the tribe on their migration from Ohio to Kansas Territory, but that in a political dispute within the church organization, in which the ME Church split into North and South organizations, that missionary had returned to Ohio in loyalty to the North faction. The South organization had prevailed in K.T., though those supporters of the North built a separate church. Mysteriously, the ME Church buildings of both North and South organizations had been burnt down.
