[excerpts from the item on Ivanhoe Methodist Church] IVANHOE METHODIST CHURCH

 Many of the pioneers who settled on the virgin soil, were not satisfied to merely build homes, raise families, and eke out a living. They wanted places of worship such as they had known at their former homes.
 When Rev. Grant L. Hayes, was appointed to the Methodist Circuit in the spring of 1902, it was called Ivanhoe Circuit and extended from the Beaver River south and included the area where Follett now stands.
 Ivanhoe had no permanent meeting-place. The little sod school-house that had served for many years, had been abandoned. Mrs. Amy Cox, invited the group to meet in her home. She was a widow living just north of the Texas line. When warm weather came, the folks around Ivanhoe met in an orchard, know as "Kroeker Grove" or the "Mulberry Grove. These trees had been set out by Peter Kroeker.
Grace Hayes Jones remembers how people came from miles around to attend Sunday services. By ten o'clock families would be coming in buggies and wagons, as well as on horse-back coming from all directions across the unbroken prairies. Some who came in wagons brought their chairs--sat on them in the back then used them for seats at church. They would also take down their side boards (extensions on the wagon boxes) and make rude benches for seating space. Spring seats from the wagons could be used if necessary.
 At noon, the side boards were used to make tables. No one ever saw a more bounteous feast than that was set out by those pioneer women. They spread white table cloths, then brought forth platters of golden brown, fried chicken or home-cured ham, bowls of cole slaw and potato salad, pies, cakes, and everything imaginable. Watermelon pickles and pickled cling peaches were special delicacies but beet pickles wer common and a general favorite. [This sounds almost like reminices. What Clarence found when he went to Beaver County was a dried out country]
 All that summer, the Ivanhoe people met in the grove for Sunday school and held all-day meetings. How the people sang--voices rang out on the fresh, morning air and re-echoed over the prairies. People were hungry for the gospel and the open-air sevices seemed expecially attractive.
 After the new school building was erected, services were held there....
 As soon as Ivanhoe was moved fromn the tent up on the hill, Mr. Mitchell, who was a staunch Methodist, worked hard to promote the work in his neighborhood. His dream of a church came true and a lovely building was dedicated on Sept. 1907 by Dr. Martindale. The Baptist Church was built in 1908 and it was quite a sight with those two churches out there on that wide prairie where nothing but buffgalo grass, prairie dog towns and an occasional buffalo wallow had existed only a few years before.
 Rev. Grant L. Hayes was apponted pastor in 1902-1903...
 To continue with information from Commission on Archives and History, Kansas West Conference: the next pastor was W.D. Johnson, 1905, salary was $96.00, enrollment 67;...1908 M.E. Hickman; 1909 C.J. Barnes with the highest Suncay school enrollment on record, 193.
 The original bell in the North Ivanhoe Methodist may be seen at Follett, Texas

===================

Lewis United Methodist Church Centennial 1888-1988 booklet (Ihave a copy) says p 12: Minor Hickman came in on trial to the Southwest Kansas Conference in 1910 at Viola, Ks. He served churches in Kansas and Colorado as he worked his way through school. In 1916, he graduated from Southwestern College, Winfield, KS. and later from the Iliff School of Theology at Denver, Colorado. Minor and Maud Hickman were married Sept. 22 1921. In 1925, he went to Russell, [error, should be Rozel] Ks. as a full time pastor. He served five other charges before coming to Lewis in October of 1941. While at Lewis on March 5, 1944, Maud Hickman passed away after a very short illness. From Lewis, Rev. Hickman served churches at Deerfield, Satanta and Cimmaron before Minor's retirement in 1954. Rev. Hickman married Osa Reed of Kinsley after Maud's death. They retired in Dodge City, Ks. Rev. Hickman passed away in 1969. Osa lives at Friendly Acres in Newton.

The children of Minor and Maud are:

2. Clarence - Superintendent of Schools Overbrook, Ks. 3. Raymond - Passed away in 1949 at Lewis. 4. John - Retired from the Weyerhaeuser Lumber Co. and lives in

         Tuscon AZ

Minor, Maud and Raymond are buried in Wayne Cemetery, Lewis, Ks.

===================

Lewis United Methodist Church Centennial 1888-1988 booklet (I have a copy) continues p 7: In October, 1941 the Church welcomed Rev. M.E. Hickman, his wife Maud and their four sons: Howard, Clarence, Raymond and John. Rev. Hickman served as the minister during most of the World War II years. Things weren't always easy in those years, but Rev. Hickman always handled difficult situations well. Many times in the winter months it was necessary to conduct church services in the church parlor because the furnace needed repairs and the repair parts were hard to find. During these years, extensive repair work was accomplished on the Church basement. The Church enjoyed the Hickman boys, most of whom were in high school. It was a sad day March 5, 1944 when Mrs. Hickman passed away after a very short illness.

[It should be said that the church people were truly behind the war effort. Normally, people did not let harvest interfere with church, but in those years, the farmers worked on Sundays. Dad drove a truck one year, except on Sunday, during harvest. There weren't enough men left to handle the harvest. I worked on a farm of about 1200 acres. Thre were three of us to cut the wheat, one to drive the tractor, one to run the combine, and I drove the truck. Later, I did all the plowing, actually one waying on the farm. There simply weren't enough men. I don't think Dad found anything wrong with farmers missing church to help with the war effort. After all, several of the "boys" were in the services and some would die. Everyone wanted the war over, and anything that would help was o.k.] [At least once, the call was all married men]

===========================================

According to Margaret, Mom and Dad were living in Wichita in 1924 (but she is not sure that it was 1924). Mom was expecting her first child. Margaret believes the child was born in Sept. [This is probably in error. Edward, their first child, was born in Colorado Springs in July 1924. If the month was July it would be Edward, or the year was 1925 and if it were her second child, namely me, then everything would be OK. [Margaret may not have known of Edward.]

Margaret says when she was smaller (before 1924?) Dad served two churches. She also says that once after Dad married Mom, she, Margaret, went to Colorado with them. He had a Model T Ford, [the kind with the door in the middle of the car?]. They went over the Great [Continental?] Divide. [I remember Dad talking about going in the mountains with a Model T. It was necessary to back up sometimes because the gas tank was under the driver's seat and there wasn't any fuel pump or vacuum tank to push the gas to the engine.] Margaret says they would camp by a stream and Dad would catch fish.

==

Dad attended the Southwestern College Academy. It is not clear from his transcript when he took specific courses, but it appears that he attended 1908-1909, 1911-1912, 1912-1913. An Academy was somewhat similar to high school. It was to prepare people for College. He attended Southwestern College college 1913-1915, summer 1915, 1915-1916. Graduated 1916. Major History, Minor Physics. He took lots of German and some Latin. In general, it appears that he emphasized religion, math, physics, and history. Southwestern Collged, Winfield KS. copy of transcript

===

I recall Dad said he was sickly as a youngster. He spoke of ague and malaria. Dad worked for some time on the Cowley County Ks court house. He talked of driving a wagon and a stone boat. [Check Cowley Co for court house dates]This must have affected him because he told me that I should never quit school to go to work. Having money is too much temptation not to continue school. [I did not know about Margaret when he told me this story. I felt that things were tough for him as a bachelor. Knowing now as I do about Margaret, the story takes even greater significance. They must have been extremely poor and literally living hand to mouth. Probably pay was very poor - he was only a student minister - and travelling to his churches must have been a big expense.]

Dad had a contract to teach school in Zenda Public Schools,School District No 82. Salary was $125. Reference at home of Clarence W Hickman

Classified 4 then 5. He had a badly injured wrist. He told me that he fell on a double bitted axe, when he was still living in MO, and cut his wrist. A "old quack" [as he told me] sewed him up. His hand hung down after that. [I believe I read somewhere that there is a nerve or something that must be repaired or the hand will hang down]. Dad also spoke of making rail fences out of black walnut. He said that they must have used "a million dollars worth of walnut" to make fences.

I have a copy. == The Southwestern Collegian, [Seen at the Kansas State Historical Library, Topeka], 18 May 1915: Debate with College of Emporia Tonight Minor Hickman.. ibid, 14 Sep 1915: Pi Kappa Delta, National Debate Fraternity, Being Organized, Charter Members include "M. E. Hickman, '16, member of two victorius teams..." 28 Sep 1915: Minor Hickman elected vice president of senior class == This is from John Wesley Hickman. "Dad was very proud of his college succes in debate. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa; the honorary forensic fraternity. The membership certifcate shows him as No. 238, was issued at LaGrange, Illinois Sept. 1 1915 and reads:

 This certifcate is hereby issued to Minor E. Hickman who, on account of proficiency and    distinction in intercollegiate forensics, has been unanimously elected to the degree of        Fraternity Order of Debate and Oratory and who is entitled to alll the privileges of active    membership in the Southwestern College of Phi Betta Kappa.
 In witness where of we have hereunto affixed our names.
 Signed: John A Shields, Gen. Sec, National Council and Teros [Treas?]  A Williams.       President, Southwestern Chapter

This certificate hangs on the wall of the John Wesley Hickman residence == John Wesley Hickman continues: "Dad was a Republican. a rock ribbed Republican; he never felt the depression was caused by President Hoover or Republican policy. A bad day for him included Franklin Roosevelt, but a terrible day included "Eleanor". Dad believes that government was not the solution for the nations [sic] ills. This belief has passed on to his sons."

"Dad was a "preacher" He never called himself a minister. Dad believed his profession required a certain style of dress. He always wore a suit, white shirt and tie in public. [He did relent on the coat on the hottest Sundays]. A particular concern was his shoes: always black; always polished, and buffed to a bright shine. In addition he wore a hat. For many years a summer required a straw "sailor" with felt hats for the balance of the year. As a young boy, I was fascinated by his wearing gaitrer and spats. Through the years he stopped the spats but the gaiters remained. We kidded him about being a "pessimist" as he used both suspenders and a belt at the same time". == Census 1910 KS Sedgwick Co Viola line 13/13: Hickman, Minor E Head age 23 married 2 yrs b MO fa b In mo b Ky Preacher; Maggie E wife age 19 married 2 yrs b KS fa b OH mo b OH

Dad preached the funeral of Mary Elizabeth Riederer, at home, in Rozel 3/28/32. He also preached the funeral of her father ___ years later. Mary's death is the first death that meant anything to me. Dad made regular reports to Mom. I remember, Mary got an infection, then she got blood poisoning and they took her to the hospital. She got bed sores, then she died. I did not understand death, but I remember the running description and how it upset the folks.

I have IN A WORLD OF LAW, HOW CAN GOD ANSWER PRAYER? this is paper given at the Dodge City District Conference meeting, at Hoisington, Feb 18, 1927. The paper is a discussion of God and Natural Law. At this time, evolution and "new" science in general were in conflict with fudamentalist religion. The paper argues, successfuly I believe, that there is no conflict. &&&&&& To Here in /data/hickman/mehfow &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& Englewood Homebiulder 7 Mar 1907 Minor Hickman spent Sunday in Englewood == Did MEH own a Model T while he lived in Buffalo Co?

    Description In February 1916, Christman Dry Goods Co. announced plans to tear down its 3-story brick building and erect a 5-story one on the same site. The retail business would continue to operate in its Virginia Street annex, which would eventually be connected to the new building. While excavating the corner of 5th and Main, workers uncovered a 783-foot deep well used by the old brewery that had previously occupied the site. The Alfred and August Michaelis architectural firm designed the Christman Building following the techniques of the Chicago style, with its reinforced concrete and brick veneer walls. In addition to these fireproof construction methods, the store also had a built-in sprinkler system. Incidentally, this feature was put to the test in 1942, when a fire swept through the first floor men's department. Although the store lost thousands of dollars in smoke and fire damage to its contents, the building itself stood secure. Christmans' new store""one of the most imposing business buildings in the city" opened its doors on September 13, 1917. Two years later, the firm expanded yet again, adding another 30,000 square feet of warehouse space for furniture, carpet, and other large items. The store touted its 150,000 square footage, which made it the largest retailer in southwest Missouri. In 1954, the Kansas City-based Macy's firm bought the company, but retained all 170 employees. The Christman family, who still owned the building, managed Macy's Department Store. Then in 1976, Macy's closed, and Christmans' Department Store reopened for four more years, calling it quits in 1980. Howsmon's Office Supply moved in shortly thereafter. Sources:Gibbons, Charles.

    [excerpts from the item on Ivanhoe Methodist Church]
    IVANHOE METHODIST CHURCH
    Many of the pioneers who settled on the virgin soil, were not satisfied to merely build homes, raise families, and eke out a living. They wanted places of worship such as they had known at their former homes.
    When Rev. Grant L. Hayes, was appointed to the Methodist Circuit in the spring of 1902, it was called Ivanhoe Circuit and extended from the Beaver River south and included the area where Follett now stands.
    Ivanhoe had no permanent meeting-place. The little sod school-house that had served for many years, had been abandoned. Mrs. Amy Cox, invited the group to meet in her home. She was a widow living just north of the Texas line. When warm weather came, the folks around Ivanhoe met in an orchard, know as "Kroeker Grove" or the "Mulberry Grove. These trees had been set out by Peter Kroeker.
    Grace Hayes Jones remembers how people came from miles around to attend Sunday services. By ten o'clock families would be coming in buggies and wagons, as well as on horse-back coming from all directions across the unbroken prairies. Some who came in wagons brought their chairs—sat on them in the back then used them for seats at church. They would also take down their side boards (extensions on the wagon boxes) and make rude benches for seating space. Spring seats from the wagons could be used if necessary.
    At noon, the side boards were used to make tables. No one ever saw a more bounteous feast than that was set out by those pioneer women. They spread white table cloths, then brought forth platters of golden brown, fried chicken or home-cured ham, bowls of cole slaw and potato salad, pies, cakes, and everything imaginable. Watermelon pickles and pickled cling peaches were special delicacies but beet pickles were common and a general favorite. [This sounds almost like reminisces. What Clarence found when he went to Beaver County was a dried out country]
    All that summer, the Ivanhoe people met in the grove for Sunday school and held all-day meetings. How the people sang­—voices rang out on the fresh, morning air and re-echoed over the prairies. People were hungry for the gospel and the open-air services seemed especially attractive.
    After the new school building was erected, services were held there....
    As soon as Ivanhoe was moved from the tent up on the hill, Mr. Mitchell, who was a staunch Methodist, worked hard to promote the work in his neighborhood. His dream of a church came true and a lovely building was dedicated on Sept. 1907 by Dr. Martindale. The Baptist Church was built in 1908 and it was quite a sight with those two churches out there on that wide prairie where nothing but buffalo grass, prairie dog towns and an occasional buffalo wallow had existed only a few years before.
    Rev. Grant L. Hayes was appointed pastor [of the Methodist Church] in 1902-1903…
    To continue with information from Commission on Archives and History, Kansas West Conference: the next pastor was W.A. Johnson, 1905, salary was $96.00, enrollment 67;...1908 M.A.[M.E.] Hickman; 1909 C.J. Barnes with the highest Sunday school enrollment on record, 193.

    a double bitted axe, when he was still living in MO, and cut his wrist. A "old·

    I wrote Woodland UMC to see if Minor was a minister there. this is the reply:

    Yes I found in our history book that he was our minister from March, 1925 to
    October, 1925. If you want anymore information I can get in touch with our
    historian.

    Decades of Descipleship: A life Story of Woodland United Methodist Church, page 7

    The early 1920s saw general economic depression in this agricultrual area. The entire decade was a time of struggle for the Woodland congregation. In 1921 membership totaled thrity-three, the all-time low point. Neverthe less the period began with a decision to renovate and enlarge the church building...

    M.E. Hickman came to Woodland in March 1925 and was replaced in October of that year by H.G. Butler when the Conference changed its date of meeting from the spring to fall. John Yeoman came in 1927 and remained until 1930. The Hickman, Butler, and Yeoman families occupied the parsonage at 1431 Burns, the first actually owned by the church.

    In October, 1941 the Church welcomed Rev. M. E. Hickman, his wife Maud and their four sons: Howard, Clarence, Raymond and John. Rev. Hickman served as the miinister during most of the World War II years. Things weren't always easy in those years, but Rev. Hickman handled difficult situations well. Many times in the winter months it was necessary to conduct church services in the church parlor because the furnace needed repair and repair parts were hard to find. During those years extensive repairwork was accomplished on the Church basement. The Church enjoyed the Hickman boys; most of whom were in high school. It was a sad day when Mrs. Hickman passed away after a very short illness.

    It should be said that the church people were truly behind the war effort. Normally, people did not let harvest interfere with church, but in those years, the farmers worked on sundays. Dad drove a truck one year, except on Suncay, during the harvest. There weren't enough men left to handle the harvest. Often, teh farmers took on extra help during harves, but there wasn't any extrra help available.
    I worked ona farm of about 1200 acres. There were three of us to cut the wheat, one to drive the tractor, one to to run the combine, and I drove the truck. (There weren't any self propelled combnes in those days.) Later, I did all the plowing, actually one waying, on the farm.
    There simplyweren't enough men. I don't think Dad found anything wrong with farmers missing church to help with the war effort. After all, several of the "boys" were in teh service and some would die. Everyone wanted the war to be over and anything that helped was o.k.

This must have affected him because he told me that I should never quit school to go to work. Having money is too much temptation not to continue school. [I did not know about Margaret when he told me this story. I felt that things were tough for him as a bachelor. Knowing now as I do about Margaret, the story takes even greater significance. They must have been extremely poor and literally living hand to mouth. Probably pay was very poor, he was only a student minister, and traveling to his churches must of been a big expense.]
