    Notes 
    • A Methodist society was formed March 9, 1839, with William Powell, George Sim, Theodore Cross, Charles R. Sweet, and Stephen Post, trustees. They have a church at Philadelphia, built soon after the society was formed.
      !History of Jefferson County p. 227

      The Methodist Episcopal Church of Philadelphia was formed March 9, 1839, with William Powell, George Sim, Theodore Cross, Charles R. Sweet, and Stephen Post, trustees. Soon after the society was formed, they built a church at Pogeland, owned by William Powell. The organization continued until 1867, when it was merged in the society at Philadelphia village. This latter society was organized in 1843, with Sterling Graves, Richard Crabb, Benjamin Allen, and Nelson Chadwick, trustees. Their house of worship was erected the same year, at the southerly end of the village, on land purchased of Elizabeth Mosher. In 1858 a larger lot was purchased of Jesse Roberts, on the opposite side of the street, to which the church was removed, and afterwards enlarged and greatly improved. It will seat 250 persons, and is valued, including parsonage (erected in 1859) and other church property, at $4,000.

      The Quakers in 1827 built a second meeting house and the next year had a division in the Society. (Part of the congregation became converts to the Hicksite doctrine.) The Quakers (in Philadelphia village) began to decline after this and passed out of existence between 1850 and 1860.

      The Methodists were second in the field, on center lot 611, and began their missionary labors soon after the Quakers became divided, although it cannot be said that Methodism in the village was in any sense the outgrowth of that controversy. The first society of the denomination was formed March 9, 1838 with trustees: Wm. Powell, George Sim, Theodore Cross, Stephen Post & Charles R. Smith. In this year a house of worship was built on land of Wm. Powell at "Pogeland."
