Evangelical Church - This church was organized about twelve or fifteen years ago by Rev. G. Schoettle, with probably twelve or tifteen families. Mr. S. went to Ohio in 1877. The pastors since that time have been Revs. Valentine Zimer, in 1878, who left here for Indiana; Edward Schweitzer, 1879-'81, who also went to Indiana; and the present one, H.F. Deters, who has had the position since September, 1881.
Rev. H.F. Deters was born in Allamakee county, Iowa, in 1856, the son of Henry and Mary (Buchholz) Deters; graduated at Elmhurst Seminary, du Page county, Ill., and in theology at Mathiasville, Mo., in 1881. In 1882 he married Miss Langpaap, a native also of Allamakee County, Iowa. Besides holding his present ministerial position, he is also the teacher of German for the public schools of Owensboro, and a member of the Evangelical Synod of America.
