Chauncey Taylor Founder of Church. Rev. Chauncey Taylor No improvement could be made on what B. F. Reed says of Rev. Chauncey Taylor in his history ol Kossuth county. "From pioneer times, in that year (1854) in which Algona had its birth, down to the date of his death on the 29th of February, 1876, Father Taylor, as he was lovingly called, lived and labored among the people of Kossuth county, seeking ever the moral uplift of those with whom he was associated. *** He was born in Vermont, February 17, 1805, and died in Algona, February 29, 1876. *** Father Taylor made himself a part of the We of the community. He shared in the joys and sorrows of the people, aided them in their labors, encouraged them in hours of trial and temptation, inspired them with courage and preached to them the hope of a blessed immortality. The concensus of opinion gives to Father Taylor the credit of doing more for the moral uplift of the community in Kossuth county than any other man. The memory of such a man can never die while living monuments remain upon which were Imprinted the touch of his noble soul." Congregational Church Completed 1868, Cost $9,700 ,Capt. W. H. Ingham Member of Building Committee Capt. W. H. Ingham Capt. W. H. Ingham was one of the committee in charge of the building of the present church.

Later the bell was recast into a larger one which Is now in the church. Mr. Ingham married Miss Caroline A. Rice.

Chauncey Taylor, who came here to establish a church and preached his first sermon hi Algona to a group of twenty-five persons gathered at the J. W. Moore cabin on Sunday, April 20, 1856. Twenty, eight months later on August 15, 1858, the Congregational church was organized with a union of five workers which included Father Taylor, his daughter Harrlette E. Taylor Stacy, Mrs. Eugenia Rist Smith, and Mr. and Mrs. George D. Wheeler of Irvington. The two Wheeler children were baptised at the first service and thus began the church's career. The Congregational Society which controls the business management of the church, was incorporated February 7,1866, and the articles signed by Father Taylor, August Zahlten, Warren Walston, James L. Paine, Elum C. Miles, Harvey M. Taft, Jerome E. Stacy and Dr. Matthew H. Hudson. Upon completion of the town hall in 1857 services were held there every Sunday. The hall was located on the site of the present Boston store or the old Steele location. Eleven years later the Congregational Society bought the building and dedication services were held September 20, 1868, when Rev. E. C. Miles of Belmond preached. Father Taylor was formally installed as pastor on Sept. 6, 1867, and remained in that capacity until 1873, when he retired. In 1878 the building was moved to the northwest corner of the block in which the high school stands. Several years later when the school board wanted the entire block and the church wanted a new building, the present church was built on McGregor street and was completed in 1886. The building committee included Rev. W. H. Barnard, third pastor of the church, captain W. H. Ingham, H. S. Langdon, D. A. Buell. The contract for the building was let for $9,700. After Father Taylor completed his seventeen years of service Rev. H. B. Underwood came and was in charge of the pulpit for about a year. Others who .have succeeded him are as follows in their proper order and with the years of service: Rev. W. H. Barnard, 12 years; Rev. W. E. Davidson, 8 years; Rev. C. E. Sinclair, 2 years; W. J. Suckow, 4 years; Rev. O. H. Holmes, 11 years (during his pastorate the pipe organ was installed); Rev. Louis Goddard, 2 years; Rev. J. J. Jones, 3 years; Rev. B. M. Southgate, 10 years; Rev. W. A. Frazier, 1% years; Rev. Fred J. Clark, 2 years. Rev. J. Robert Hoerner, who is the present pastor, came to Algona about a month ago. August Zahlten Aug. Zahlten was also one of eight who signed the articles which incorporated the Congregational Society controlling the business management of the church. He was made a deacon for life years before his death, as was also Dr. M. H. Hudson. Mr. Zahlten came to Kossuth county in 1856. A short time later he bought the farm which is now known as the Zahlten farm and which Is farmed by Miss Clara Zahlten and her nephew, August Slagle. Miss Zahlten is the only surviving member of her immediate family. Mr. Zahlten was born in Prussia, Janury 12, 1817, and passed the first 35 years of his life there. On January 7, 1857, he was married to Miss Margaret Rlebhoff. Mr. Zahlten died on March 0, 191)2, after a long life of usefulness and industry. The Zahl- ten family always took an active part In the life of the Congregational church. August Zahlten Early Deacon for Life Jerome E. Stacy Jerome E. Stacy was one of the eight signers of the article's which incorporated the congregational Society which controls the buslnesti management of the church. He came to Algona in 1856 and on April 12, 1862, was united in marriage to Miss Harrlette E. Taylor, daughter of Rev. Ohauncey Teylor, founder of the Congregational church. Mr. Stacy served in many civic capacities and among other offices which he filled was that of county judge for a two year period. For thirty years he was proprietor of the Algona Nurseries and he also erected Algona's first flour mill which he operated for the same length of time. He died December 16, 1904.
