Oakland M. E. Church is located in the northwest part of Wayne
 Township. The first M. E. Church organization in this part of the
 county was formed in the spring of 1858 by Rev. T. McK.
 Munhall, and called Independence. The following named persons
 were the first members: Rev. Abraham Bennett, Rachel Bennett,
 Celinda Bennett, Francis A. Baker, Caroline Shaw, Diantha
 Edgerton, Jacob Smith, Rachel Smith, Moriah Smith, William
 Smith and Matilda Adams. At first they worshiped in a vacant
 house on the place then owned by George Buck, which was used
 for a church and schoolhouse. They also conducted a very
 interesting Sunday school at that time. After the Prairie Grove
 Schoolhouse was built, services were held there awhile, afterward
 in Pleasant Ridge Schoolhouse. In 1879, this organization united
 with a small society at Oakland, and in 1880 the Oakland Church
 was built, a frame building 28x40 feet. At the present time, it is
 one of the best churches of its size in the county.
