1. My Harrison Family weren’t early members but were Presbyters and lived in Valley Creek by 1855 so must have been members.

  2. My husbands relatives were newtons and most were Presbyterian ministers, establishing church’s on the east.

  3. Thanks very much for a very interesting write-up. I have one correction, however. The last sentence under “First church was razed and a frame building arose” states that Rev. Porter and others were from Abbeville, North Carolina. They were actually from Abbeville, SOUTH Carolina. Henry and Pheba Emerson, 3rd great-grandparents of mine, were early members of the church, arriving from Abbeville, SC in 1825, as were the Armstrongs, Henry’s mother’s family.

    1. Thank you for the correction!
