“Thawley’s Methodist Church (M.E.) at Hickman. In 1884, land at Noble-town, Md., was secured from Zebedial Fountain upon which a chapel was erected. It was located close to Liden’s School. It was named Davis’ Chapel in honor of the Rev. A. D. Davis. In 1888, the chapel was moved to Hickman where it stands on the Delaware side of the street which it faces.

The name was changed to ‘“Thawley’s” in honor of Henry Thawley of Burrsville. The site was purchased from Wm. R. Peters on Mar. 23, 1904. The original corner-stone was recovered, in 1919, by the Rev. G. T. Gehman and reset in its proper place. In the spring of 1942, the church was repaired and renovated.” (1)
