About the Church family
Captain Samuel Church first moved to the region north of Riga in 1808 where he built a saw and flour mill. He privately owned the entirety of the land, but in 1852 it was formally named Churchville after Samuel Church. Dennis Church, whose names appears on page 3 of this volume and page 150 of the Riga School Records, was the nephew of Captain Church.
