    It’s so nice to see Kokomo’s Amish community finally mentioned here.

    I agree, Reid. I grew up in the Howard-Miami Mennonite Church, and I read this post with considerable interest. I have a copy of the History of Howard-Miami Mennonite Church, which was issued in 1948 on the 150th anniversary of the church’s founding. It includes a detailed history of the church and many of its early (and later) leading members. I’d forgotten how fascinating it was, and I’m going to blog about it on my Northkill blog as soon as I get a chance.

    Thanks so much for this article! I really enjoy this blog!

    If I recall correctly from discussions with Old Order Amish in Milroy, the Milroy community in Rush county are descendants from the community in Howard County. The Milroy community would also be considered “progressive” in comparison with other Old Order Amish in the state, due to their allowance for various modern conveniences and technologies. Its not uncommon to see bobcat machinery used on the farms there. There is also a family that is reported to have electric in their home because of the medical condition of one of their children.

    if and Amish family needs electricity for medical reasons, there is nothing wrong with that. Amish are just like the English, we are all humans and we are all children of God.
