(Webmaster's Note: Continuation of June 15, 1850
entries from previous page.)
June 15th, 1850 CONTINUATION:
It was moved that Br. STREATOR cite them to
appear before the officers of the church on Saturday the 29th of June to answer
to the charges brought against them. Br. PRALL for intoxication and
non-attendance and Br. ROBINSON for profanity and non-attendance. In the
case of Sister McCREARY it was moved that Br. STREATOR write to the Peters Creek
congregation to ascertain her standing at the time she left. Inasmuch as
the brethren at Redstone deemed it inexpedient to change Br. STREATOR's
appointment in order that Br. STREATOR and Br. MILLIGAN might preach one half of
their time for this congregation, it was resolved that Br. MILLIGAN still be
employed one half of his time.
On motion of Br. MILLIGAN that Brs. SULTON,
HAYDEN and BURNET be invited to attend the yearly meeting. On motion that
we adjourn to meet again on Saturday before the 3rd Lord's day in June at 1/2
(one half) past one o'clock.
June 29, 1850
The officers met agreeable to adjournment.
Brs. Harrison PRALL and Robert ROBINSON being present their cases were taken
into consideration. The testimony was presented in Br. PRALL's case and
was considered sufficient to prove the charge. Br. PRALL having exprefsed
(sic=expressed) a regret for his past conduct and an intention of doing better
for the future was excused.
Br. ROBINSON acknowledged to the charge of
profanity. He was then called upon for his reason for absenting himself from the
church (and?) a number of charges against members of the church which were not
considered by the officers as any reason why he should absent himself.
Having therefore not rendered any sufficient reason nor manifesting any desire
to do better. On motion he was excluded from the church.
The following cases were postponed till the next
meeting. Br. HAND for using profance (sic=profane) language. Br.
Joshua MARTIN for fornication. Samuel MARTIN for profanity. Jacob LUTZ and
Jane MARTIN for improper conduct. On motion Br. STREATOR was appointed to cite
them to appear (at) the next meeting. On motion that we adjourn to meet
again this day 2 weeks at 2 o'clock.
