March 14, 1889 — Messrs. Jos. T. Strickler, Philip Long, Jno. W. Long, Daniel S. Hite, M.V. Gander, Reuben Ruffner, A.D. and A.J. Brubaker, of the Old School Baptist Church, have been appointed to a committee to solicit subscriptions to build a new church near Hamburg.
It is proposed to erect a brick building about 35×50 feet, to cost about $2,000.
The building will begin early in the summer, if sufficient funds are raised, which the committee feels assured that the liberality of the people will guarantee.
