Michigan

By Rev. S. N. Griffith

She and her worthy companion refused to build a house other than their first small house until they had built a house for God; and this was the first house of worship north of St. Joseph river. But now they rest from their labors and their works do follow them. Nathan Cobb was among the number of those that formed the first class and was a steward, and furnished a home for the weary itinerant. He died in the summer of 1833, full of hope. Rev. J. T. Robe also formed classes at Little Prairie Ronde, and at what is now called Three Rivers; also on or near McKinney's Prairie, and at John Albright's, at Edwards' Prairie, and at John Hunter's, in the bend of the St. Joseph river, above Berrien, and at the mouth of the St. Joseph river. The nearest he came to forming a class in Bronson, (now Kalamazoo), was a class organized at Indian-fields, at the house of Bro. John Hemka, who then lived on the east side of the road at what is now called McKee's corners, this side of John Williams', John Hemka, leader; his wife, Hannah Chester Johnson, Maria. McCane, Martin McCane and wife, and R. Harris, now living in Kalamazoo, 1878.
