Williamson Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), located one mile west of Williamson in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, a member of the Washington County, Maryland, and Franklin County, Pennsylvania Mennonite Conference, had a joint min­isterial body with the Marion congregation until 23 March 1948, when Mahlon Eshleman was ordained exclusively for this congregation (William­son). Previous to 1869, when the meetinghouse was built, the members worshiped jointly with what is now the Marion congregation, the meetinghouse then being located at Brown's Mill. By 1924 the membership had dwindled to 5, but by 1954 had risen to 65. In 1957 the minister was Mahlon D. Eshleman, and the membership was 49.
