In the History of the Northern Plains 1844-1977, there is 1.5 pages about
the Osceola Church,
started in 1872. However this book only lists pastors, elders, and
occasionally family names
of founders of a church. I don't find any names you mention, but there's
no doubt about there
being a church which you attended. Church work ended after 1944 with only
two active families.
The building was rented to a Lutheran congregation and later sold to the
Reorganized LDS and
the congregation "officially disorganized" in 1962.
The only idea I have presently for finding church records would be the
Northern Plains District
Office, Connie Burkholder, District Executive. You'll have to type in the
email address, as
I haven't learned how to create a "clickable" one.
