Miller's United Methodist Church Cemetery-Manchester

(United Brethren until 1960s)

History of the Miller's United Methodist Church

Most Brethren churches were German.  There is nothing in the history (Nott/Dement) that indicates the parish or area was German.  Many of the names on the original membership/charter of the church would lead us to believe it was German, as are many of the names within the cemetery (from the 1895 membership rolls:  Miller, Smith, Gentz, Myer, Frank, Rabinstine, Hoofnagle, Hager, Rinehart, Albaugh, Bollinger, Deager, etc.).   There are also indications that the Sunday school was ‘Miller’s ‘Union’ Sunday Schools’, which normally represented Lutheran and German Reformed, but could be any two faiths sharing a church facility.
