"The Old Order River Brethren are a small Old Order Christian denomination with roots in the Mennonite church and German Radical Pietism through the Schwarzenau Brethren....

"The denomination began about 1778 in Pennsylvania. It shares an early history with the Brethren in Christ Church. A group of brethren near the Susquehanna River that had previously separated from the Mennonites became known as the River Brethren.

"In 1856, a group left the larger body of River Brethren and established a separate, more conservative group. They were sometimes referred to as the York Brethren or Yorkers, because most of the members in 1843 were located in York County, Pennsylvania.

"This minority group believed the majority of the church was becoming lax in non-conformity and non-resistance, and desired to return to old doctrines and traditions. With the emergence of more progressive or modern groups and the clarifying naming of other Old Order groups among the plain people such as Amish (Old Order Amish forming 1862-78), the Mennonites (Old Order Mennonites, 1872-1901) and the German Baptist Brethren (Old German Baptist Brethren 1882) in the late 1800s they defined themselves also as 'Old Order'". - Wikipedia
