    Salem United Methodist Church
    Goldsboro, North Carolina

    Homecoming and Becentennial Celebration
    September 21,1986
    We are indebted to a former member, Col. W.S.G. Andrews, for much of
    the early history of Salem, which was recorded in his article published
    in the North Carolina Advocate of Feb. 1856.
    Daniel Deans Jr. came from Virginia and settled on Stoney Creek in
    Wayne County, North Carolina. He was a member of a small religious group
    in that community. In 1786 his mind became very much disturbed about
    religion. His conduct was so singular at times that his neighbors though t
    him deranged. During one of these seasons of mental depression, he
    concluded to visit his birthplace in Virginia. While he was there he
    attended a meeting of Methodists, heard the preaching, was taught the
    way of life more perfectly, and experienced the forgiveness of his sins.
    When he returned home, on meeting his wife, he threw his arms around
    her and exclaimed, "O' Elizabeth! I have seen a man in Virginia, who
    was worth a lifetime of labor to see. If I had known how happy his
    preaching would make me, I would have traveled the world over to find
    him. He has promised to come and preach for us, and you shall hear him
    and be happy."
    Shortly thereafter, the "English preacher", as Bishop Asbury was
    called, came to the Stoney Creek neighborhood. An Englishman named Watts ,
    who lived on the east side of Stoney Creek, consented that he should
    preach at his house.
    The sermons of Bishop Asbury were preached to the small religious
    group at the house of Mr. Watts, in Wayne County. Daniel Deans Jr.
    therefore is credited with helping to introduce Methodism into Wayne
    A few years after Bishop Asbury preached at the Watts home, a small
    log meeting house was built on the west side of Stoney Creek, and called
    " Deans Meeting House ". It was very crudely constructed of rough logs,
    with holes cut for a window and door. But no window or door was ever
    Some of the preachers who conducted services at Deans Meeting House
    were John Buxton, John Kay, Morris Howell, and Mr. Moody. They were m en of
    great zeal, and constant revival attended their labors.
    Some years later, the little group which had been formed at Deans
    Meeting House, moved to Sarah Howell's about two miles west, and near
    the present location of Salem Church.
    Sarah Howell had joined the church at Watt's; had lost her husband;
    was not in affluent circumstances; had a family dependent upon her; but
    she threw open her doors to the group and to the preachers.
