Collection Description

Biographical Note

North Six-Mile Baptist Church probably was organized early in 1818 and on February 21 of that year the church meeting agreed to purchase "a book for the use of the Church" and also to purchase "one Acre of Land of James Morton for to Set the Meetinghouse on" the building to be "framed" and 30 by 10 feet in size. Rules of conduct and procedure were placed in the book (numbers 1-3 are missing). On September 18, 1836, the next to last entry in the book, the church agreed to unite with the Rocklick Church and build a church "at or near Pleasurville."
