Inhaltsangabe: East Central Indiana was at the crossroads of two distinct migrations, each bringing the social customs of their former homes. One group came from southern areas; the other from more northern states; each with traditions of architecture, farming practices, gardening, and preferred foods. The thick woodlands with occasional grassy prairies reminded each group of home, and they established similar cultures here. Thus, throughout the area, the neighbors might be doing things in different ways than you were accustomed to. It was the same for the Brethren. While many had come overland from eastern settlements of Indiana or the western edge of Ohio, some had migrated northwestward following a trek over Tennessee and Kentucky. In addition, they were a mixture of German-speaking people from Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia, and English-speaking people who were more recent converts from Lutheran, Baptist or Methodist backgrounds. The surnames and cultural practices found in this area clearly reflect that homogeneity. Most comprehensive account to date of German Baptist Brethren migration into East Central Indiana from the earliest settlers to 2008, focusing on Henry, Madison, Hancock, and Hamilton counties, with special emphasis on the Beech Grove Congregation of the Old German Baptist Brethren from 1881 to 2008. Contains a concise account of the beginning of the Brethren in Europe and America; each chapter introduced by a fictional first-person discussion between people who would have experienced what the following pages recount. Describes frontier life and developments around the Brethren: includes first person accounts; 448 surnames with hundreds of short biographies, including those who lived there after 1881; endnotes; bibliographies; topical index; surnames index; biographical appendix with 50 pages of pre-1881 German Baptists in western Delaware, Hamilton, Hancock, Henry, and Madison, Indiana counties. Ideal for genealogists, historians, and church historians.
