Yes, the Ladoga congregation was on Raccoon Creek. I do not know
whether the Potter John Miller family who moved to Parke Co considered
themselves part of that or not (it was a considerable distance by horse
and buggy). Potter John returned here to the Four Mile about 1850, and
lived with his son, Minister Daniel Miller (who later moved to Iowa).
There were several meeting houses in the congregation, at least later.
A cousin was Thomas Miller, put into the ministry at Ladoga, and moved
to Missouri (Cedar Co), injured during the Civil War atrocities of that
area, and died in Kansas. Several other Four Mile families moved on
west from there - Arkansas, Iowa.
