Biographical or historical data
Lutherans had settled in the area that became Floyd County in 1831 as early as the 1790's. On 10 May 1813, the Lutherans worshipping in a log schoolhouse were formally organized into a congregation. In 1838, the first church building was constructed and dedicated as an Evangelical Lutheran and German Reformed Church by the Reverend Jacob Scherer and the Reverend Samuel Sayford. The brick church was constructed in 1861 and another church was built in 1898.
