Rev. Helenor M. Alter Davisson was a circuit-rider of the former Wabash and North Indiana Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church. She was ordained a deacon in 1866 in Jasper County, Indiana, quite possibly the first woman to be ordained in any branch of the United Methodist Church in America. Her grave is in Sandridge Cemetery about one-third mile west of the intersection of county roads 250N and 450W, north of Rennselaer.
