(Note from Helen Blaha - I'd
been searching for a photo for a long time. Today Marla Lampi posted
in on the Owen-Withee FaceBook page. She said she saw it at a family
reunion she attended today. Exciting find!)
Eddie Porath reported that the Rural
Union Chapel stood on the SE corner of Section 4 in Green Grove. It was
conducted by parishioners, and connected to the West Beaver Church. He believes
the building was taken down by the Buss family in about 1951. Later, someone
built a basement there and had a mobile home on the property. Eddie Porath's
wife, Anna Mae, lived in that mobile home with her mother for a time. Later, a
young man named "Ewert" lived there and then died in a fire in the mobile home.
Eddie Porath's house is built on the basement on which the mobile home stood.
There is a cross shown on the SE corner
of Section 4 of Green Grove, on the Frank Juntunen property, in the 1956 Clark County Plat Book. It's still there
the 1964 plat book, when the surrounding property was owned by W. and C. Hingiss." Helen Blaha
