St. Peter’s Lutheran Church was located one and a half miles south-west of Hamilton. It was organized as early as 1805 by Germans, who had settled in this part of the township, from Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina. Among the early members were the GARVERs, FISHERs, LINGLEs, CASTATORs, TROUTMANs, MITCHELLs, KYLEs, and SHELLHOUSEs. The first house was a log building, about sixteen by eighteen feet. The furniture was plain and simple. The fireplace was eight feet in width and five feet deep.

As there was no regularly built school-house, at an early day the church was used for educational purposes also. It continued to fill both these requirements for about thirty-five years. James HILL, of Millville, long dead, was a school teacher in the old church, in 1832. He was followed by Captain William GIFFIN. Jonas BALL came soon afterward.

Justice TROUTMAN, who attended school here when a boy, says the “teachers always had a stock of iron-wood switches on hand, stuck above the joist, to be used in cases where the youngsters needed trimming.” These men were not very conscientious about the application of the whip. When there were six scholars in the classes they were thought to be large. Among those who attended school here were James GARVER, now a distinguished physician of Minnesota; William GARVER a prominent lawyer, and Henry GARVER, now acting surgeon at the Soldiers’ Home, Dayton, Ohio. Jacob TROUTMAN, well known in Hamilton and elsewhere throughout the county, and a man who has filled nearly all the municipal offices in the gift of the people and the city, was another pupil.
