    Thanks for all of that info! Ever since we ran into some Born Again German Baptists while camping in Oregon about 12 years ago, I’ve been interested in more! I would love to have spent more time with them, and they invited us to, but alas, they arrived the day before we left…

      Interesting, Tiffanie, I have not heard the term “born again” GBs…did they dress plainly? Did they say where they were from?

        It may not be an official group name, but they said “We’re German Baptists, we’re born again .” Yes, they were dressed plainly. We’re also born again Christians, so we had that connection there. Also I wear dresses, even camping, so another connection, sort of. I don’t remember where they were from, but somewhere in Oregon I think.

    I might be able to help a little with the german baptist from Bradford/covington area. I have family that was raised there and my mother used to work for a Dr that had family that went to the church. Email me if you can use what little I have.

    Old order GB’s vend produce at the Piqua farmer’s market every Thursday from 2 pm to 6 pm. They do use tractors for farm work but horse and buggy for transportation.

    For some reason part of my comment didn’t post, so I will redo the missing part.
    One of their churches is east of Covington, the other, west of Pleasant Hill. Both are easy to get to. Sundays are alternated between churches so driving distance is more equal for everyone.
