*Rev.JOHN B. CURL

The second Sunday in July, 1831, Minister John B. Curl constituted the "Bear Creek" Church in Adams County, and also the "Mill Creek" Church in the same county before the close of the year. Mr. Curl labored diligently through all that section of the State, and three or four other congregations were formed about the same time.
