The membership of Pleasant Run Church on McFarland Creek in Monroe Co 1827-1844. Taken from the book of the same name by the late Eva Coe Peden and now (c) by Sandi Gorin. This church was located on McFarlands Creek in the SW portion of Monroe Co. No one currently seems to know the exact location. There is an old burying ground nearby near the KY-TN line which might have been close to the church.
The church was constituted 7 June 1827. There is one membership roll in the church minutes showing the following members during this time frame.

Remember - dismissed means they moved or a new church closer to them was constituted and they requested a letter. Excluded means there was a problem which the church and the individual couldn't rectify and they were excluded - similar to excommunication in the Catholic Church.
