   "Society of Friends - Spicewood Church. -- This congregation held its first meeting at a house on the land now owned [1880]by Elijah Jay, one-half mile west of Spicewood, in November, 1865.  The preparative meeting for business was held July 26, 1866, in a log cabin on the land of Amos Cook, one-half mile south of Spicewood.  Jesse Mills, Elijah Jay, Patty Furnas and Lydia Ann Cook constituted the committee then appointed. Christopher Spray and Eunice Furnas were the first permanent Clerks, and Samuel W Cook the first Treasurer.
   The first persons who joined the meeting were Amos Harry and family, Carey Linton and family, and William Emry and daughter Ollie.  In the fall of 1869, the society erected their present house of worship, at a cost of $910.  Spicewood Monthly Meeting was first convened for business October 26, 1871.  It then had no minister, but at present has four, viz.:  John Cook, Eunice Furnas, Marian Simons and Charity Regan.  John B. and Mary Foulke are the present Clerks."  S1 page 105, Doc4605.pdf
   "Jesse Mills, son of William and Elizabeth Mills, was born, in Warren County, Ohio, on the 27th day of 2nd Month, 1831.  He was a birthright member of the Friends Church and was converted to God early in early in life.  He was married to Mary Jay in his 19th year, which proved a happy union, lasting nearly fifty-four years.  With his wife and two daughters he removed to Hamilton County, Indiana, in the spring of 1865, becoming a member of Greenwood Monthly Meeting in the limits of Westfield Quarterly Meeting. 
   He had to travel from five to eight miles to attend meeting, but was never absent without he was hindered by causes beyond his control.  Soon, however, he with his friends and neighbors began holding religious services in private houses in their neighborhood and the outgrowth of which was the establishment of Spicewood Monthly Meeting in 10th Month, 1871.  By this monthly meeting he was recorded a minister of the gospel in 11th MonthJesse, 1880.  He engaged in evangelistic work in several meetings within the limits of Western Yearly Meeting, but his special fields of labor and that which lay nearest his hear, was in Spicewood and New Hope Meetings, both of which he had been largely instrumental in establishing."   S6 page 98, Link,
