In the first few pages of Minute Book 1 are found these names as person who "defend and support" the artices of faith:

The last eight named appear to be servants as no last names are listed.

This was apparently to separate the members of Spring Creek of Sulphur Fork and Spring Creek of Red River churches.

   From: GEORGIA
        chickflet <chickflet@aristotle.net>
    The Elizabeth Sellers mentioned in the Will of William Huddleston in 1814
Robertson County, Tennessee, is Elizabeth Huddleston Sellers, first wife of Isaac
Sellers, son of

Robert Sellers Sr. of Burke County, NC. If I remember correctly the
marriage can be found about 1799 in Rutherford Co., NC.

GEORGIA - Thanks, but, you are going to have to draw me a picture or a
chart!I haven't traced the HUDDLESTONS, except Wm's will in 1813 and an
Elizabeth HUDDLESTONS will in 1821, both in ROBERTSON CO, TN  and
probably should order copies of these as an ELIZABETH SELLERS is
mentioned in the papers of Elizabeth, wife of Wm Huddleston.
I'm sure this Howell SELLERS is from Edgefield Co, SC = Rev War papers
But, we Need help on All these Western TN counties. And, I do want to
trace this ELIZABETH SELLERS connected to Huddlestons. Thanks , marie,

FROM OLEEN
"Oleen Pollard" <opolla@apex.net>
Marie, As far as I know there is no official document listing Daniel as the
definite husband of Elinor.  It came down through some of the submissions
for the "Family Ties" journal.  There could be a Bible record somewhere
this was referring to, but now I just have to say it is undocumented.

On Larkin Sellars Children:  Jesse came to Graves County, KY in the early
to mid 1850's.  John (Jack) according to family information lived around
Nortonville, KY.
Willis, David and Naracissus Caroline who is my gr. grandmother, and Martha
came after the death of Larkin in 1858.  They were on the Graves County
Kentucky census in 1860.

The only children named in Larkin's will were:  Martha, Narcissus Caroline
and David.
They all were willed land.  David was willed the land Larkin bought from
Howell Sellars.
=====
OLEEN, thank you, I would appreciate a copy of LARKIN SELLERS 1858 ,
ROBERTSON CO, TN will - can you copy? or type? NEED all names, heirs,
witness, description of land.
Do you have extracts of any other Robertson Co, Tn wills? I believe mine
in county minutes only go to ca 1804 and we need these Huddleston wills
1821 and 1813.
Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa

Nathan and Nancy (Howell) Fyke, natives of North Carolina. The father of our subject was their
youngest child and was a farmer and shoe-maker. He was married three times, our subject being the
child of his first wife. He attended school at Cedar Hill, and when twenty-one years of age began
working for his father on the farm, continuing six years. He was married to Mary Solomon May 13,
1875, and purchased the farm of 116 acres where he now resides. They have one child, Eula M.,
born August 29, 1880. Mr. Fyke has been quite prosperous in his agricultural enterprises and raises
corn, wheat and tobacco. [p.1153] The family are good, substantial citizens, and the father is a
