"The ground upon which the meeting house was built was donated to the church by Allen Tomlinson to Joseph Moore, Allen Tomlinson and Noah Tomlinson, as trustees in 1859.  In the erection of this edifice the labor was donated by the members.  A part of the house was used for a school room for eight years."   [S1, page 323]
The Friends Church and school building (School # 17) are shown on the 1880 Washington Township map in their current location, on the land of Allen Tomlinson who provided the land for them both - They are located north of Westfield on the Lick Creek Gravel Road [S2, between pages 134, 135]
