Manuscript Volume, Records of the Congregational Church . . .
April 2, 1859
This small note/ledger volume contained some "Records of the Congregational Church of Mt. Gilead Anderson Co Kansas Territory," which may have been recorded by John S. Hanway, the son of James Hanway (but John S. Hanway's name is not given among members, etc.). The volume covered about a year and a half, from the church's inception in April 1859 to the last dated entry in September, 1860, and was composed mainly of the congregation's articles of faith and by laws. Samuel L. Adair led devotions at the first meeting. The church's first members and/or officers were Wakeman and Mary E. Partridge, J. F. and Ruth I. Wadsworth, Lydia Gilpatrick, Margaret Potter, and William Loomis.

Kansas Experience of William Beh
This testimony, presumably from the Journal of Investigations in Kansas, was most likely recorded on paper by Thaddeus Hyatt, president of the National Kansas Committee. This particular testimony is a very brief account of William Beh's experiences during the turbulent times of 1856 and 1857. It includes information about his claim on the south fork of Pottawatomie Creek and his involvement in the militia as a member of Capt. Samuel Anderson's company. He also requests aid, because he has been sick for three or four months.

Town Organization of Hyatt, Kansas
This printed item documented the organization of the town of Hyatt in Anderson Couty, Kansas Territory. Issac Hull and C. J. Farley served as the officers at a May 2, 1857, meeting that unanimously adopted a "declaration of rights" and "articles of fraternization" suggested by W. F. M. Arny. Arny was elected mayor of Hyatt for a year. The document also included information about the organization of Anderson County. D. N. Buffum presided at the county organization meeting held May 4, 1857, and Albert Blauvelt served as secretary. After the resolutions organizing the county were approved, W. F. M. Arny was named judge and associate judges were J. Y. Campbell, Col. Harvey, Solomon Kaufman, and B. Tyler. Election judges--S. P. Hand, John S. Robinson, and Darius Frankinberger-were also selected.
