Little Grove Christian Church
Robert Breeze was born in Orange county, North Carolina in 1778 and died December 8,1862, at the age of 84. He fought in the Indian War at the Battle of Tippecanoe under General Harrison. In 1810 in Clark County, Indiana, he married Margaret Copple. She was born in 1791 in Rowan county, North Carolina and died in 1875 at the age of 84. While still in Indiana, Robert and Margaret joined the Christian Church. In 1827, the family moved to Jefferson county. In their home was organized probably the first Christian Church in the county by Rev. David R. Chance and Rev. William Chaffen of Marion county. Later the Breezes deeded the land to the church where Little Grove Church now stands.
