*History Of Wayne County, Indiana, by Andrew W. Young
(published in Cincinnati, 1872)
"About the same time the society decided to build a new house of worship; and in November following; (1866,) Wm. S. Reid was chosen "to take the entire superintendence of the new church building." David H. Dougan was elected treasurer; and Daniel Reid, John J. Conley, and David H. Dougan, trustees for the ensuing year. On Sabbath, September 15, 1867, the congregation entered their new house of worship for the first time. The opening sermon was preached by Wm. Davidson, D. D., of Hamilton, Ohio. July 17, 1869, A.M. Weed was chosen an elder. In February, 1870, Rev. Joseph W. Clokey, the present pastor, commenced his labors, and was installed the 28th of April following." (end of quotes)
In the publication; History Of Wayne County, Vol. II, published 1884 in Chicago by Inter-State Publishing Co., the following paragraph was added to the (above) ending quotes: "The church was not fully finished until 1869, when it was dedicated by the Rev. William H. McMillan, of Xenia, Ohio. The Trustees at the time were Daniel Reid, John J. Conley and David H. Dougan. The Elders at this date, 1884, are: William S. Reid, Andrew F. Scott, James W. Smith and T. W. O. Braffett; Deacons, Frank H. Glass, Lucius W. Roberts, Alfred Lefevere and Don MacPherson. The church liabilities at its completion were assumed by W. S. Reid and A. F. Scott, and the church is free from debt. It is a handsome edifice, built in the Gothic style, and in size 39 x 70 feet, with a seating capacity
of about 400."
