HISTORY OF SCHUYLER AND BROWN COUNTIES, ILLINOIS 1686-1882, p. 222, 223:

 

"Rev. James W. Baldwin, the founder of the Union Baptist Church of Illinois, was born in Butler County, Ohio, August 7, 1806. He made choce of the medical profession, and practiced as a Botanic physician in various places in Ohio and Indiana, from 1826 until 1833. He was married first to Miss Lydia Wiseman, 30 August 1830; second to Miss Mary Ann Martin, June 23, 1845. He professed religion June 1833. this event caused a radical change in the course of his life. He joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was at once chosen class leader. Before the expiration of his term--six months-- he moved to McLean County, IL, where he remained connected to the Methodists about two years, then joined the Missionary Baptist Church at Randolph Grove. He was licenses to preach by that church in 1838. He moved to Mason County, IL in 1840 and joined the United Baptists at Mt. Zion Church. In

1841 he was regularly ordained to the Gospel ministry; Elders Abraham Bales, John L. Turner and Elijah Veatch officiated in his ordination. He moved to Schuyler County [IL] in 1849, where he remained preaching and practicing medicine until 1871, when he moved to Brown County [IL], locating on the old Langdon Farm in Versailles Township, where he still resides [1882]. Father Baldwin -- as he is familiarly called -- is a man of strong and purely honest convictions, eminently devout and spiritually minded, and possessing no considerable degree of education, and being endowed with no wonderful force of intellect, it has ever been the wonder of those who have heard his preaching, what power he has over men. Thousands have been converted under his preaching, and some of his converts have made eminent ministers of the Gospel." (more here on the tenants of the Union Baptist church but not specifically about James W. Baldwin)

 

The Little Creek Church, which was associated with the cemeterywas organized in 1850. It had a "frame house of worship, 24 X 30 feet, built in 1870. It is situated in the northeast part of Versailles Township."
