Information about these records and many thanks to Shirley for sending them to be posted to Gallatian CO IL page. I have had a time trying to get these records to you. I did manage to copy most of the pages to send, but several would not copy right. You will note that some pages end rather odd and continue on to the next page.... this is the way the original pages were written, so I have left them that way to be able to find my way around more easily. Where it was impossible to read, I left lines. I also copied every word as it was written, so if there is some misspelled words, it is the way it was originally written. These records are from Gallatin County. The church was located near Gibsonia near the Hardin co. line. There is no picture of the church. dates in the records... 1833-1847, And also..... several years ago, I submitted these records to the "Saga" of Illinois. So if you have access to those back issues... they are there. As you can see by the the church existed before photography was available in those parts We tried to locate the foundation to no avail. The original records are crumbling, and we felt very privledged to have been able to have a copy. I have also sent a copy to the Cumberland Presbyterian Organization for their records. (I found the organization still exists via the Internet)
Best Wishes,
