==================
From Jodi Emblen:

The first church in Friends Cove was a crude log cabin. The title to the land was granted Jan. 6, 1798 to early settlers of the Reformed faith from Louden ‎(sic)‎ Co., VA.
Rev. Henry Geisey came some time between 1790 & 1794 to serve the Lutheran-Reformed. In 1803 Rev. John Deitrick Aurandt began a Missionary among German Reformed. In 1809 he visited Friends Cove once every three months. In 1812 Rev. John Henry Gerhart served people in Bedford Co., including Friends Cove, for seventeen years. 1831 to 1835, the Rev. Solomon K. Denius served the area.
This church ‎(Old Double Brick Church)‎, a new, large, 2nd church building was completed in 1833. It was ‎(is)‎ a two-story brick structure 35 x 45 feet in size, with a gallery on three sides and a Swiss high pulpit - at a cost of $2,290.60. The building was designed by a Hunt. Most of its interior is still intact. Original window panes show the wavy quality of old glass. The pulpit on its high platform, deacons' seats, communion rail, stairs and balcony are all from the original furnishings. Pews and pump organ are from a later period. It housed two fast growing congregations. The Reformed congregation sold their interests to the Lutheran congragation and built a third church in 1888, within a few hundred feet of where the original log church stood. The Lutherans continued to worship in the Old Double Brick for many years.

===========================
1884 "History of Bedord, Somerset and Fulton Counties", P974.871HI: pp. 353-355, Colerain Township was organized as a township of Cumberland Co., prior to the formation of Bedford County in 1771. Its original dimensions cannot now be ascertained, though there is evidence that they covered nearly one-third of the present territory of the county. The nearness of Friend's Cove to Fort Bedford was favorable to early settlement, and the white man came early to this beautiful valley. During the trying times that ensued, the pioneers bore themselves with firmness and courage. The revolutionary period presented the darkest scenes in the early history of Bedford Co., and the inhabinants of Friend's Cove were subjected, during that time, to the greatest dangers and hardships. The reader is referred to the general history for an account of the contests between the white men and the Indians. Friend's Cove is a fertile and beautiful valley, encompassed by mountains on three sides. The soil is more that ususal fertility, and the land, though somewhat stoney, is valuable to agriculturalists. The first pioneers generally located at or very near the foot of the mountains, on what would now be considered the least valuable portions of the valley. The reason for this was, doubtless, the fear of frosts, which were very prevalent along the bottom-lands and in all low places. John Friend, for whom the cove is named, secured a title to a tract of land lying at the southern end of the borough of Rainsburg, which was patented to him as "Friend's Retreat" in 1762 . . . ‎(cont)‎
