#4 - D.T. Crabtree – (West?) Union Church of Straight Fork

I have permission from D.T. Crabtree, Sr., to copy the pages from an Old Church Ledger, believed to be from and about the “Union Church on Straight Fork”. Book has dates of late 1800’s, to early 1900’s.

According to a Facebook friend, Tracy-Steve Matlock, she was told by her Aunt, that the Missionary Baptist Church, and the Straight Fork Union Church, met in the same building. She actually said they met at same time and had revivals . The ones from the Missionary Church sat on one side and ones from other church sat on the other side.

What is written is mainly about the dates and results of the church’s business meeting and establishing a “Rules of decorum for church” and election of Moderators, Clerks, etc. A few old names are mentioned, names like: G. B. Lay, W. B. Hale, Elder William Baird, Spencer Lay, Richard Crabtree, John Ladermilk?, James Lay, Moses Crabtree, Lizey Byrd?, Ellick Goodman?, Calvin Marcum, Marziley Lay?, Rachel Strunk, Andy Lay, Emiline Adkins, Adrain Neal, Marrian Adkins?, Nancy Lay, M. C. Cross?, W. M. Hale, Johnson Phillips, Martha Cook, Alferd Lay?, Emily Cross, Will Cross, W. T. Pennington, Billie Hale, S. C. Roberts? Nancy Roberts, Will Goodman and wife Bell Goodman, Isaac Seiber and wife Lissie Seiber?, ?? Frits?, Matildie Frits, Rebeckey Darty?, Creasie Darty?, Mose Crabtree, Oney Stephens?, Nettie Stephens, Hiney Shelton (Shellen?)?, Hallie Shelton (Shellen?)?, John Stephens, Tommy Stephens, J. M. Silcox, Andrew Silcox, John Hale, John Baird, W. A. Lay, M. F. Chambers, Thomas Cox, Elizabeth Cox, E. S. Wells, Mary Wells, Mandy Wells, Mary J. France, Lue Baker, Sherman Nash, Lucey Allen, Nancy Allen, Texey Stephens?, G. F. Stephens, Sarah Stephens, J. H. Stephens, James Goodman, Emesley Hatfield, M. D. Baird, Joseph Newport, J. L. Baird, Frank Smithers, Rebecca Smithers, Nancy Adkins, Tomis Smithers, Pherby Smithers, Parzida Silcox, J. C. Lay, Truman Ely, Abraham Strunk, John Collins, and others.

Some pages are missing from the Ledger. Pages shown here are all that was available.
