Adventists in 1860's in Stephenson
I've been trying to figure out why a couple got divorced in 1873 after a very long marriage. In a biographical sketch of one daughter and son-in-law, she refers to her father as a Methodist Episcopal and her mother an Adventist. I know that there were many Adventists groups at the time, some with quite different beliefs. Does anyone know of any groups in the area in the time right around the Civil War and just after? This is a mystery I'd really like to solve.
