Peter Cook and his wife Rachel were such devout Presbyterians, they were willing to take their church from New York to the frontiers of Michigan. The couple joined forces with several other families, with last names including Kanouse and Hathaway, and established a church on May 22, 1831. Then they all boarded a boat on the Erie Canal with their children and a few belongings, then took another boat to Detroit, like a floating church headed for Saline.
