Martin Mellinger, a prominent deacon for 52 years in the Mellinger Mennonite Church just east of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, named after him. Mellinger was born at Ruchheim, Palatinate, Germany, became an orphan at 10, landed in America 16 October 1772, and was ordained deacon in 1790. He also served the Swiss immigrants who settled near Wooster, Ohio. His correspondence with his cousin Peter Weber of Kindenheim, Palatinate, Germany, published in the Mennonite Quarterly Review 5 (1931) 42-64, contains much valuable historical information.
