The Alta Heiser Collection Index Vol. 4, January 1, 1948 & December 26, 1951. There is a record that James Scott and William Robeson, as trustees of the Concord congregation, paid Robert Lytle $20. toward the meetinghouse erected on the ground he gave from this farm for a church and burial plot. The folks up that way of the Associate Reform faith were too far from the church in Hamilton, Butler County, Ohio. Major William Robeson’s daughter Maria married James Woods. Their farm was between Darrtown and Collinsville, Butler County, Ohio. Their daughter, Mary Ann Irwin, after moving to Indiana often was homesick for the old Four Mile community. One of her letters, in which she spoke about the time “when we all went to the old log church, an undivided family”, thus told that this was a log structure.
