* hey Merle, you disagree with Roger S. on who John H. from NC is -- did
>find some definite proof???
I forget now Sappington's stand on this. I don't have his Carolina
History (he mentions me in it -at the North Wilkesboro Church), but it
is here at Bethany Seminary, so I've read it. I hold that "John H"
(placed on ban by the 1798 Annual Conference) was John Hendricks who
moved to the Drakes Creek Church in Kentucky (Warren County -then;
Simpson County -now) and died on a trip near Kaskaskia -in southern
Illinois - as the family was preparing to move to Missouri (White Water
Church, near Cape Girardeau).
I do not agree with some Brethren Historians that it was a John Ham
-since the Ham family over on Drakes Creek was not Universalist.
The real leader of Brethren "Eternal Restoration" (Universalism) in the
Carolina's was David Martin, son of George Adam Martin. But David
Martin had previously died, so was not mentioned at Annual Meeting.
>-- and lastly, i hear there was a CoB publication last month about the
>universalist Brethren, can anybody direct me to where I might buy a copy of this?
A person doing some real research on Universalism in the Brethren is
Michael Hodson (address: 160 Carriage Crossing Way, Troy Ohio 45373 -I
thot he gave me an e-mail address? -I don't find it -used to be chaplain
at the Greenville Brethren Home) He gave a paper on Eternal Restoration
at the Bridgewater College Conference a year or so ago.
