Redstone QM was the first to be established for Friends living west of the Appalachian Mountains. Its original meetings were Westland and Redstone, but within a decade it extended from approximately Pittsburgh west to approximately Indianapolis. The QM was originally subordinate to Baltimore Yearly Meeting, which partitioned the Ohio meetings in 1807-1808, limiting the QM to meetings in southwestern Pennsylvania. The QM suffered from the Hicksite division in 1828 and then the Gurney division in 1854. By the time of the second division, the meetings in the QM were in a much reduced condition. In 1869, when only one MM could be sustained in the Quarter, Redstone QM was laid down and its members were attached to Salem QM.
