Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Volume One: 1836 and Beyond - Sherida K. Eddlemon.
The Cumberland region included Kentucky, Tennessee and parts of what was then known as Virginia. The area became known as "Cumberland Country" since the pioneers had to cross over the Cumberland Mountains and through the Cumberland Gap to reach the territory. The twenty-two churches whose records were abstracted for this book were located in Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. These early church records are an untapped rich resource for the genealogical researchers. The records in this book include marriages, births, baptisms, communions, deaths, and registers of deacons and lay members. This volume includes listings from churches grouped by state.
