CODERS in Carbon County

I have been researching my 3rd great-grandfather Rev William J Coder.

In an online history of Carbon County, PA, in the history of the borough of Mauch Chunk I found the following:

"Methodist Episcopal Church- The first Methodist sermon in this place was preached in 1827 by the Rev. William Coder, a local preacher, at his own house, near where the weigh-lock now is. The first class was organized there, and Mr. Coder was appointed leader. The class consisted of twelve persons, among whom were Henry Coder and his wife, William Coder and his wife, and Isaac Allison and wife.."
later on the page:
"During this year [1830] William and Henry Coder removed to Port Carbon."

Port Carbon is in Norweigan Twp in Schuykill County. In the 1830 census there is a William Cooder and a Henry Cooder listed. I've always suspected William Cooder was my William. I also have believed Henry was William's brother and this now seems likely.

Still no first name for Mrs. Rev. William. She's always just "and wife."
