This was the Rush Creek Friends Meeting. Along with Maple Grove Meeting in
Huntington County, it made up Maple Grove Monthly Meeting. These were
Hicksite Friends. Abstracts of its records appear in volume III of Willard
Heiss's ABSTRACTS OF THE RECORDS OF THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS IN INDIANA.
Heiss says that Rush Creek was laid down about 1900.
I am interested in William McKimmey, who was a prominent Quaker minister.
