The book "Centennial Lancaster", written and published in 1897 by C.M.L. Wiseman, states at pages 204-205 that The Evangelical Lutheran Church was organized in Lancaster, OH about December 15, 1816, Rev. Michael Steck of Greensburg, PA. Prominent Lutherans included Jacob Beck, Sr., Christian Rokohl, Edward Schaeffer, John Herman, George Beck, Sr., Christian King, Jacob Schaeffer, and Gottlieb Steinman. A new church was built in 1819, cornerstone-laying ceremony taking place on August 11, 1819.

Hope this helps. Anybody reading this have any info on a James Baker McCray, married in Fairfield County about October 21, 1838?
