¥e can find very little on this church organization. An item of January, 1891, notes that Dr. Jewell and M. J. Carter, the trustees of the M. E. Church, have made arrangements to allow use of the church building for services of the German Lutherans on every third Sunday. An article published in the winter of 1894 notes that the German E. L. Church of St. John was incorporated in Ossian by the following members: Frank Frantzen, Henry Breitspecher, Louis Schweinifus, Henry Behrens, Henry Scheve and Charles Grnipp (sic) . A professional card in a November, 1903» edition reads: "German Lutheran Church Services at call—Rev. G. Blessen, pastor."


We are limiting our coverage of this federal count to Ossian businessmen plus the names of farmers that are reconizable in later periods of the town's history.
