  • Notes 
    • An article about my Great Great grandfather, Rev. John Antle, (1789-1866), 2nd husband of Phebe Sackett Mosteller Antle. I located this article at the Illinois State Historical Library - [from Alyce Beggs]
      History of the Separate Baptist Association in Illinois Printed in Petersburg, IL, 1879

      Elder John Antle emigrated to the State of Illinois in the year 1829, and settled in Sangamon county, and in the same year he organized the Bethel Baptist Church near Springfield. In the next year, 1830, he organized the Union Baptist Church in Morgan County. In the year 1833 he organized another church at Salisbury, in Sangamon~County
      We would make special mention of Elder John Antle. He was the first minister of the Separate Baptist Church that emigrated to this part of the state. Possessed of good native talent, a common education, but thoroughly versed in the scriptures. sound in doctrine, a man of true piety, highly esteemed and loved by all, gified in exhortation, powerful in prayer, and especially adapted to the work of an evangelist; he had great faith in the promise of God, and experienced some remarkable answers to prayer. We give one instance, in which contrary to every prospect, his prayer was answered, and in which he seems to have received an assurance entirely satisfactory to himself; that it would be answered, and made the same known to others before the answer was received. A young man, a minister of fair promise of usefulness, in whom the Elder felt an especial interest, was taken violently ill, became unconcious; and grew worse from day to day, until both friends and physicians gave him up to die, and in fact, death was hourly expected. At this time Elder Antle called to see the yourig man, and after looking on the scene for a while in profound silence, he remarked to a friend, "That from every human appearance death was inevitable," but said "he will not die, his Master has a work yet for him to do." That minister still lives to preach the gospel. A short sketch of Elder Antle's life is given in the "Biography of the Old Settlers of Sangamon County, Illinois." It is there said of Elder Antle "That the only reward he ever received or expected in this life, was a hope of a reward in Heaven." He has passed away, and although no stately monument marks his final resting place to perpetuate his memory, yet he still lives in the niemory of those who knew him. "Though dead, he still lives in the memory of those who knew him. Though dead, he still speaketh." His influence is still felt among us. As to this world he was poor, sometimes walking a distance of twenty-five or thiry miles to fill an appointment. How applicable the words of Paul tothe Corinthians: "As sorrowful., yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing all things."
