Biographical / Historical

Soon after the Separation of 1828, Gunpowder Monthly Meeting, Orthodox, was designated a Preparative Meeting because of its small membership, under care of the Baltimore Monthly Meeting, Orthodox. It reported regularly to Monthly Meeting sessions until the 1850s. In November of 1871 it was recorded in the Minutes of the Baltimore Monthly Meeting that the "Meeting for Worship at Gunpowder, Baltimore County, long held at the house of our Friend John Scott was directed to be discontinued owing to his removal to Deer Creek."
