Just a possible note of interest. The Brethren Encyclopedia indicated that Abram Yant, from Pennsylvania, assisted in the organization and early leadership of the Tuscarawas congregation now known as the Eden Church of the Brethren in Stark Co., Ohio. Services were originally held in homes, schoolhouses, and in Yant's barn. He is listed as having been an elder in the church.

Brethren often moved west in family groups or close knit friends. I looked at the Yant Family Forum searching connection to my ancestor Sophia Traul or Trowell who was one of John Thomas Traul's children placed under guardianship with Abraham as executor for her father.
