CHURCHES:

DRY RIDGE (WILLIAMSTOWN)

Dry Ridge Church was organized in 1791 by Elders Lewis Corban and John Conner. Indians threatened early services. Elder Squire Boone preached here in 1798. The church was reorganized on the fourth Saturday in November, 1826, at the old brick seminary in Williamstown, and took the name of the Williamstown Church. The seven charter members of the reorganization were William Conrad, Martin Draper, Elizabeth Conrad, John Lowe, Esau Boyers, Robert Childers, and L. John Lawless Sr. The presbytery was composed of Elders William Glascock, James Gouge and Absalom Skirvin. Elder William Conrad was ordained here on April 28, 1827, and served as pastor for 54 years. He was followed by Elders James J. Gilbert, W. L. Lines, J. Harvey Daily, and others.
