Welcome

church history

From Charles Blanchard’s Counties of Morgan, Monroe and Brown, 1884:

“Since the earliest times, the religious sentiment has been stronger in Brown Township than perhaps any other portion in the county of equal or less extent. The first settlements were no sooner formed than ministers began to appear, and classes began to arm themselves for the good fight ...... The Methodist class at Mooresville was really founded by Eliza Moore, wife of Samuel Moore [founder of Mooresville] not far from the year 1828. ....... In 1839, the members of this church were the families of the following persons ....... A very large revival had occurred two years before, by which the class had multiplied nearly tenfold.”
