The Bunker Hill Universalist Church was organized in 1845 or 1846, with Elias SAYRES, J. C. WELLIVER, Hiram and David PEARSON, Samuel GARNER, Sr., and brother, William, John CREAGMILES, Noah SAYERS, George GARNER, and several of the ROSSES, for its first members. The land on which the church stands, as well as where the graveyard is, was owned by Alexander DENEEN. The house was erected in 1857 by Elijah ROSS, contractor. Before the church was built, meetings were held in a frame school-house, built in 1852, on the south side of the road, at the foot of the hill near the creek, at the junction of the St. Charles and Millville Roads.From about fifty interments in the burying ground we take the following: Michael BRESSLER, born in Berks County, Pennsylvania, May 26, 1792; died February 7, 1866. Susanna BRESSLER, born February 27, 1797; died April 5, 1866. Obadiah WELLIVER, born September 13, 1777; died September 15, 1839. Hannah WELLIVER, born October 3, 1780; died July 8, 1869. These two people were the parents of large and respectable posterity, many of whom still reside in this vicinity. Margaret TREMBLY, died April 23, 1864, aged 65 years, 8 months, and 11 days. The TREMBLYs were also early members of this Church. Abraham BALSER died June 6, 1858, aged 72 years. Elizabeth BALSER died December 23, 1859, aged 72 years. Michael BURGETT died June 22, 1857, aged 46 years and 1 day.
