Christian Newcomer was a brother of my gggg-grandfather Henry Newcomer. I posted a picture of Christian Newcomer's grave in December 2013 along with a summary of his life. He was the third Bishop of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. You can read about him on Wikipedia or GAMEO.
Although a sign on the church identifies it as a Methodist church, a plaque tells us that is was originally Evangelical United Brethren and was first built in 1879 and rebuilt in 1915.
