Nold, Jacob (1765-1834), the first Mennonite (MC) bishop in Ohio, was born in Milford Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, of parents who came from the Palatinate, Germany, in 1754. He was ordained to the ministry 30 March 1794, and served the Swamp Mennonite Church congregation, where he was later ordained as bishop. In 1813 he and Abraham Wismer conducted a tour of preaching appointments in Lancaster County. In the same year he and a few others went to Ohio evidently looking for a location. Four years later, in 1817, he moved to Ohio with his family, locating in Columbiana County, just east of Leetonia. He was extremely active and energetic and is said to have been instrumental in effecting the organization of congregations in Medina, Stark, and Wayne counties, serving these congregations as bishop, going from one to the other on foot or on horseback. Feetwashing was optional in the Columbiana-Mahoning congregation in the early years, many being opposed to it. In order to have fellowship with the Wayne-Stark County Mennonites who favored it, Nold introduced feetwashing in his home congregations as the result of great effort. This counsel with the Wayne-Stark group in time grew into the Ohio Mennonite Conference. Bishop Nold had a son, Jacob Nold (1798-1864), who was the first Mennonite deacon in the Leetonia area, and who had a third edition of Christopher Dock's Schulordnung published at Columbiana, Ohio, in 1861.
