Bethyl Society
Class Book

1856-1859

Donated by Garret Graham
and George W. Van Syckel,
grandson of George L. Piggott


There were once two Bethyl Churches in Harrison County, known now as the "Old Bethyl Church" and the "New Bethyl Church".  The churches were located between Lumberport and Dola, and no long exist.   This class book is a listing of all the members between the years of 1856 and 1866, and provided basically attendance information.  I've kept the spelling exactly as it was written, and have tried to mark strange spellings so they wouldn't be mistaken for typos:)
