Two books that cover the pioneer founders of early Illinois Brethren
Churches are SOME WHO LED (by D. L. Miller and Galen B. Royer, Brethren
Publishing House, 1912) and SOME BRETHREN PATHFINDERS (by Eld. J. H. Moore,
Brethren Publishing House, 1929). Both of these books cover the activities
of Elders George Wolfe, Isham Gibson, and Daniel B. Sturgin, who were three
leading pioneer Brethren Elders, establishing many of the earliest Brethren
congregations in Illinois. Names of counties are mentioned in these books.

> For Northern Illinois, you might start by getting "Brethren in Northern
Illinois and Wisconsin", by John Heckman and J.E. Miller, published by
Brethren Publishing House in 1941. Brethren started settling in Ogle,
Carroll, and Stephenson counties in the 1840's.
