From "The History of Randolph Co., Indiana" by Tucker, page 149: The White River MM, Randolph Co., In, 6 Sep 1828: John and sons William Armfield, Isaac and Curtis were received on certificate from Springfield MM, IN; also, Susannah and daughters Rebecca, Rachel and Elizabeth.
14 May 1836, John Thornburgh of Cabin Creek Meeting complained of for "withdrawing from the society and sideling in, setting up and holding meetings contrary to disciplines" for which he was disowned 9 Jul 1836. Susannah was also disowned.
About 1834 there was a defection in the Hardshaw Preparative under the White River MM. "Rev John Smith, a U.B. Preacher, came into the neighborhood where John Thornburgh lived. Upon his preaching, the people liked his doctrine and a Union Church was formed by Methodists and Friends. Some of the chief members were John Thornburgh, George F. Smithson, G. Wesley Terrell, Willliam Moore and John N. Terrell. The log church near the cemetery was built in 1838. The church was thriving while John Thornburg (also a minister) lived among them. After his death, divisions arose, the meeting house was sold and another erected further south, and gradually the Friends-Methodist Church became a thing of the past."
