Deed (click to see)

Spring Creek Church, located about two or three miles southwest of Clyde, or Hornsby P. O., united with the Concord Association in 1852, and reported 12 members at that time. Elder Carter Keel, Jacob Harris, and L. Jones were messengers in 1853,  Deed records have been found, which show that Tarleton Blevins and wife Sarah, on January 3, 1870, granted one acre of land to the trustees of this church, viz., Carter Keel, David Wood, Franklin Duncan, Henry B. Blevins, and John K. Beer.  This was in the SE Corner of the NW 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Sec. 16, Cahokia township, T8N R6W 3PM. The 1875 atlas plat of Macoupin county shows a church symbol at this legal description, and it is adjacent to land owned by Elder Carter Keel and others who were members.  The church continued to meet as late as 1942. The records have not been found, and a photo has not been located.  It appears that Sarah Keel was clerk until her death, in about 1932, then one Elizabeth Harris was clerk, and may have been the last living member.
