Dear Sue in Virginia, This list is for the Church of the Brethren which
is different from the United Brethren in Christ church (the U.B.s later
bacame E.U.B.s and the E.U.B.s later became the United Methodists),
however, many of us UB/EUB/UMCs monitor this site anyway and have
benefitted immensely from the "conversations" that come through. What
you need to do is request microfilms of The Religious Telescope through
interlibrary loan (ILL) for the years in which you are interested and
read the microfilms for information about your Rev. Wainscott. I don't
remember coming across his name as I read microfilms #1 through #9, but I
wasn't "keyed-in" to his name then, either. The microfilms begin with
the 1834 issues of the paper, a weekly that was the "official" newspaper
of the U.B. church. It was published first in Circleville, Ohio and
after about 1855 was published in Dayton, Ohio. The paper was subscribed
to and was distributed all over the nation. The microfilms are not
indexed, so if you read one, please consider indexing as you read. I am
indexing #10 right now, but I am the only one I know of who is doing this
volunteer project. ---Sue Stine (Sue in Minnesota)
