MOLL'S CREEK CHURCH RECORDS


Transcribed by Max Ervin
These are some of the names and writings contained in an old Moll's Creek Church ledger. They are taken from photocopies of some of the ledger pages, but unfortunately the copy quality is very poor with many names being unreadable. Here are some fragmented transcriptions:

[Partial Membership roll - 1859. The notes following a name were probably added later than the date indicated for the page. For example, Nancy Carty is known to have died in 1878, so "Deceased" was apparently added to the roll where she was listed in 1859.]:
