Lake County, Illinois: The Leaves of Healing

The Leaves of Healing was a publication started by John Alexander Dowie and continued by the Christian Catholic Church that he founded. The church established a base in Zion, Illinois. Members came from around the world to join their brethren.

The magazine included testimonial letters from members and prospective members, names of those baptized, children consecrated, and other information of value to a genealogist.
