Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- It seems likely that the Moller got removed from Bethany Lutheran - which was formed in 1954 from the merger of three older Lutheran congregations:

-Mt. Pleasant Lutheran Church (of Big Hill Road, founded 1845) -Old Mt. Pleasant Lutheran Church (of Big Hill Road, founded by split with Mt. Pleasant in 1922) -Mt. Zion (of Meat Camp, founded in 1896).
