McMinnville Old Order Amish Settlement (McMinnville, Oregon, USA)
The McMinnville, Yamhill County (Oregon), Old Order Amish settlement, located near McMinnville, consisting of 60 members, dates back to 1895, when the families of David Schrock, Amos Schrock, Tobias T. Yoder, Joseph Christner, and Jacob K. Miller moved there from the neighborhood of Hubbard, Marion County, Oregon. The congregation was organized in 1896 with Tobias Yoder as bishop and David Yoder as minister. Other ordained men who served the congregation were David Y. Miller, Daniel E. Miller, David D. Schlabach, and Daniel Coblentz. The settlement died out twice, 1904-1906 and 1927-1928, but was reorganized in both cases. In 1955 the membership was 35, with Menno Swartzentruber serving as bishop and Samuel Weaver as minister.
