    The Fathers of the German Reformed Church in Europe and America, Volume 5
    Rev. Charles A. H. Allardt
    This brother came well recommended from Europe, in 1833, and was received by the West Penn. Classis . In 1834, he is reported as pastor of four congregations in Columbiana county, Ohio, and afterwards, at Cleveland, in the same State . In 1845, his name appears for the last time on the minutes. He probably left the Church.

    Cleveland Pastors and Their Churches
    Schifflein Christi
    From the Jubilee Edition of Waechter und Anzeiger Newspaper, 1902
    …In August 1838, Steinmeyer accepted a call to Phillipsburg. His successor was Pastor C. A. H. Allardt. He remained in office until 1861. In 1842 a bridge church was built at the corner of Erie and Hamilton Street which received the title of “The Little Boat of Jesus.” Fuurther storms were not lacking during his ministry, breaking out in 1858 when Pastor M. Steiner was called by the congregation as assistant pastor. He made himself very popular with the congreation, but could not get on well with his elder collegue and superior, and this led to another fracture in the congregation. With the help of his adherents, Pastor Steiner organized a new congregation which constructed a church on property belonging to the mother congregation on Scovill and Greenwood. This daughter congregation is the flourishing St. Paul’s Church, whose minister today is Pastor Eppens.
    After pastor Allardt laid down his office, Pastor W. Schmidt took over. A bad storm arose during his ministry as well, which once more tore away a piece. In 1868 there were disagreements which led to a portion of the congregation, including some of the oldest members, departing along with Pastor Schmidt to establish the First United Evangelical Protestant Church on Erie Street and Central Avenue.
