His pastorate included Low's, Friedens, St Paul's and Richland.An organizer from Ohio, who was ordained in 1808 in the NC Synod, later records show his work in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois and after 1829 in the Tennessee Synod.During this pioneer period of the Lutheran church he served as the first president of the Indiana Synod.
Birth date is not known, but he was born in Ohio, and died November 22, 1850, to be buried at Portland Mills, (Putnam Co) Indiana. (Source: 225th Anniversary of Low's Lutheran Church, compiled by Lorena Garrett Shoffner, 1996 - Low's Lutheran Church, Liberty NC)
In the minutes of the synod held in 1810 at Organ Church in Rowan County NC there is this interesting statement:"Rev. Markart's pastorate: Pilgrims, Beck's Schweiszguth (Swicegood) now Sandy Creek, Lau's (now Low's), Friedens, Graves (now St. Pauls)." Certainly the field was large enough to claim the energies of any man. (Source: 225 Years History of Friedens Lutheran Church, compiled by Lalah G. Apple,page 9)
