Mill Creek (Old Mulkey) Baptist Church

(This message is from Doug Moore in response to Sandi Gorin's postings on the membership of Mill Creek (Old Mulkey)Baptist Church. I hope that these two lists will be of some help to you. Thank you Sandi & Doug for making them available.)

Sandi wrote:
"So many of you have ties to the Old Mulkey Meeting House in Monroe Co. I am going to post the membership here, as I just started with Siloam. The church minutes run 1798 thru 1820. I cannot here, now, get into a history of the church altho I hopefully will do this later. This is taken from my transcription of the minutes of Old Mulkey."

Doug's comments and list:
"In the paragraph above Sandi notes that the minutes run 1798 thru 1820. What she meant was that the transcription made by Eva Coe Peden (which Sandi has in her catalog) covers that period. You can view the entire set of minutes on microfilm at the LDS Family History Centers. I don't recall exactly where it ends, but I believe it goes up into the 20th century."
"The transcription that Sandi sells is well worth having. The handwriting in the original is very difficult to read and I use Sandi's transcription whenever I need information from that period (1798 - 1820)."
"An excellent (and accurate) history of the Mill Creek Church is a relatively new book by Loy R Milam entitled "Old Mulkey - A Pioneer Plea for the Ancient Order". The address on the title page is:

                       Loy R Milam
                       PO Box 81
                       Tompkinsville KY, 42167

"In the original minutes, there is a list of members (177 names) that appears near the beginning of the book. Eva Peden left these out of her transcription. It has been stated by some writers that this is a list of the membership in 1798. This is not true. The church split in 1809 over church doctrine. The list of 177 names was compiled at that time and included (more or less) all who had been admitted to the church between 1798 and 1809. I am including this list (in alphabetical order) below:"
