Historical sketch of the St. Paul A.M.E. Church, Urbana, Ohio

St. Paul A.M.E. Sabbath School, Dec. 3, 1876

The Church of Urbana was organized about the year 1824 or '25 by the Rev. Moses Freeman, who was a Missionary sent by the Philadelphia Annual Conference.  He traveled very extensively throughout the west; when he came to this place he found only a few persons of color and but few members of the A.M.E. Church, but when the object of his mission was made known, he was gladly received and with Frank and Rachael Reno, Lewis and Susan Adams, John and Rebecca Gamon, Elijah Brown and Fanny Carter, met at the house of Sister Fanny Carter, where he preached and organized the first A.M.E. Church in Urbana.  Elijah Brown was the first local preacher; he was appointed Leader of the Class and kept the little flock together until a preacher was sent to supple and care for this little plant.


W.O. Bowles, Superintendent, Julia W. Roberts, Female Superintendent; James Robert Myers, Treasurer, John W. Jones, Librarian; Wm. C. Guy, Ass't Librarian; Walter M. Tudor, Secretary.
