List of China Inland Mission missionaries killed during the Boxer Rebellion

Martyred Missionaries of the China Inland Mission in 1900"Missionaries serving with the C.I.M. who were killed during the Boxer Crisis"In 1900, attacks took place across China in connection with the Boxer Rebellion which targeted Christians and foreigners. The China Inland Mission lost more members than any other agency: 58 adults and 21 children were killed. They were soon referred to as some of "the China Martyrs of 1900". However, in 1901, when the allied nations were demanding compensation from the Chinese government, Hudson Taylor refused to accept payment for loss of property or life in order to demonstrate the meekness of Christ to the Chinese.
