Excerpt from The History of the Olivet Baptist Church of Chicago: A Dissertation Woodson, Carter G ph.d. The History of the Negro Church. Vashington, 1922. In 1846, the Wood iver-baptist Association of Illinois reported 14 churches, 9 preachers, 6 licentiates, and 243 members, scattered over the State from Shawneetown to Galena and chicago.i From this Statement it might be inferred that there was a Negro Baptist church in Chicago in 1848. Kore over, the inference seems all the more probable from a state ment from Dr. John Kason Peck to Dr. David Fenedict about the sama time.
