Forks of Elkhorn Church: With Genealogies of Early Members
Situated near the conjunction of Franklin, Woodford, and Scott counties, the Elkhorn Church was a magnet for persons of the Baptist faith who had suffered under the established church in Virginia. In a series of sketches based on the old minute books of the church, the author recounts the church's early history; lists its founders, members, and pastors; and endeavors "to tell something of the families who worshiped at the Forks Church during the first half century of its existence." Several hundred families are traced by means of entries in the old minute book, family Bibles, wills, land records, tax lists, census records, and a variety of other sources, while family legends and traditions are also incorporated into the fabric of the genealogy. Here the researcher is furnished with places and dates of birth, marriage, and death; names of children, husbands, and wives; places of residence; and points of migration.
