Growing up schismatic

Where are the hotbeds of Reformed Christianity in the United States?

Western Michican and northwest Iowa. No surprise there. The distribution of counties where Friends form a significant percentage is a bit strange though:

Of course, the maps are not conveying a particularly accurate sense of where most "X"ers live, just which counties have the highest relative concentrations of them. There could be many more Reformed Christians living as a minority in a few populous counties than as a majority in the South Dakota and Iowa counties. (But I doubt it.)
