Church Founders Rachel Burwell and Abraham Wiser

I am trying to locate information on my ancestors, Abraham Wiser and Rachel Burwell. Would you have any records in the church regarding them? Thank you. Nancy

"Center Chapel, a Methodist Episcopal edifice, is located about a half mile east of Espyville Station. The class was formed in 1825 by Rev. Thomas Carr, the first pastor, and among its earliest members were John Thayer and wife, Abraham Wiser, Rachel Burwell, Mrs. Hannah Burwell, Miss Hannah Burwell and Horace Taylor and wife. Meetings were held at private houses and in the schoolhouse until about 1846, when the present church was erected. The society now numbers about fifty members."
