I am currently researching the history and historical membership of the Shiro Methodist Church. I have transcribed a listing of church members from about 1885 to 1911 which includes the names above plus others.

I am interested in learning the history of these members of the church for a church web site. I would be happy to share the information I have from the old church records to family researchers.

Which surnames are you interested in researching? I will be glad to provide any information I have that may be of assistance to you.

On the Shiro Presbyterian Church, I do not have any information. I could check with their minister for a specific name if you would like.

Michael,

I am curious in the Satcher and Hoke families. I believe that William Washington Hoke was a trustee for the church but don't have any additional information. Thanks for any information you can provide.
