Note: this is the end of the list of Probationers in this book.” The Church Record”, Mount Hope of Quarryville Charge, ending about 1913. Note: Not all probationers went on to become members of the church. Some were dropped from the rolls, others transferred to other churches, others just moved away. The book does include information that I did not have room to include. If additional information is needed please request that the original book be opened if you find an entry in question. This has taken me some time to complete, but it was an act of love on my part. And something I wanted to do. To the present church members, these people are the past, they began this church. You are now the present, the children are the future, teach them to love and respect it.
