Baptist and Methodist Dispute Funds

Baptist and Methodist Dispute Funds

Newport Kentucky


From an article in The Cincinnati Daily Gazette May 2, 1873


The Colored Baptist and Colored Methodist of this city
both claim a fund of $125, which was raised four or five
years ago, for the purpose of establishing a Union Church,
where all denominations could worship.  A suit has been
commenced in the Chancery Court to settle the matter,
and it will probably be decided at the next term.  The
money is in the hands of X Sine.
