Genealogy of the Woodcock Valley

Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania

St. Mathew's Lutheran Church


*****************UNDER CONSTRUCTION*****************************



St. Mathew's Lutheran Church has a history rich in the Woodcock Valley. The church was first hosted out of the home of the Garner family and then a wooden school house known as the Garner School about 1804.. Then, a stone structure was built in 1838, which still stands today and is now known as the Old Stone Church.

Later, a new brick church was built in Marklesburg, on the road to Aitch, which still serves the Lutheran congregation.

A list of ministers who served the church, taken from the Re-Dedication of St. Mathew's Lutheran Church on Sunday, November 9, 1941, includes:
