Aaron Martin, born 30 August 1918 in Lancaster County, PA, joined with the Jacob Stauffer group in eastern Snyder County, Pennsylvania, but in 1945 led one of the two-way schisms in that congregation. Martin was ordained to the ministry after this schism, 4 June 1945, and four weeks later bishop. In 1950 the group had 28 members and used the meetinghouse a few miles west of the Susquehanna Trail. Further divisions, a total of four in seven years, reduced the group to small fractions each with a bishop, minister, and deacon, all using the same meetinghouse at different times.
