Miller's United Methodist Church Cemetery-Manchester

(United Brethren until 1960s)

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.
