WESLEY CHAPEL, HARLAN TOWNSHIP

The Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church was organized about 1846, by Jacob Jackson, Joshua Thompson and others. The church is situated near Level, in Harlan Township, and is one of the most active country societies in the county, with a large membership. The pastor is Rev. J. W. Burdsall, who is seen in the above picture. The elderly gentleman standing at his side is Mr. Am. M. Fox, born in Union Township, Warren County, March 30, 1827. In 1845 he moved to Harlan Township, within half a mile of Wesley Chapel, of which he became a member in 1853. In 1869 he moved closer to the church, where he now resides, being the oldest member now living. He has held all of the official offices, and within the fifty years has always been found in the front ranks, absenting himself only on account of sickness which, fortunately, has seldom afflicted him.
