Preacher listed in John T. Brown's book Churches of Christ - A Historical, Biographical, and Pictorial History of Churches of Christ.

J. V. Updike was born in Celina, O. He passed from earthly life at Bloomington, Ills. His mother was Maria Lincoln and a relative of Abraham Lincoln. He was a marvelous man of God and a most successful Scriptural evangelist. After his great meeting in Des Moines, when 563 were obedient to Christ, H. O. Breeden and others pronounced him the greatest living evangelist, and said: "He is of medium stature, has good health and tine spirits. His face, smooth shaven, usually wears a smile. The eye twinkles with good humor. He is buoyant, cheerful, hopeful and sympathetic. He at once gets on good terms with his hearers by frequent recognition of all the good there is in them, especially those who differ from him and may be prejudiced against his doctrine. His elocution is assisted by a clear, ringing voice. Its tones produce a pleasant sensation. The graces of oratory are immolated on the altar of truth.
