Biographical / Historical

After the Separation of 1828, the few families from Warrington and Menallen Monthly Meeting who identified with the Orthodox came under the care of the Baltimore Monthly Meeting. Not until 1893 was a Preparative Meeting formed and a Meeting site procured for the Orthodox Friends in the village of Bendersville in Adams County, Pennsylvania. It was laid down in 1903.
