Feature Article on millennium. Topic: EVENTS
By Jim Sayre in October, 1999

MILLENNIUM EXPECTED NEARLY 130 YEARS AGO

"The millennium is certainly near at hand. A few weeks ago the pastor of a Methodist congregation at Versailles, Darke county, commenced holding a series of religious meetings at Newport in the western part of this county. An interest was at once taken by a few persons in the cause, and at last accounts twenty-six persons had become professed Christians. A Catholic church as been the only place of worship in that section of country for many years. This good work has been brought about by Rev. Reuben Rouch" (Sidney Journal, Mar. 8, 1871).
