   "This photo of the Upper Fall Creek Church of the Brethren was reproduced from the Middletown/Fall Creek Township Historical Society publication 'Memories, Dreams, and Reflections of Middletown.'  The article with the picture said the church was originally known as the German Baptist or 'Dunkard' church.
   The church, which is located 2 1/2 miles east of Middletown, was organized in 1845 with twenty five members. Jacob Miller donated the ground where the church was built, and in 1853 deeded the land where the old part of Miller's Cemetery is located.
  Among the early families associated with the church were:  John F. Miller, Jacob P. Miller, Andrew Fattic, Peter Keesling, Jacob Good, Jacob Brunk, George Hoover, Isaac Van Matre, David Crist, and George Hoover.
   The name was officially changed in 1918 to the Upper Fall Creek Church of the Brethren."
