CHURCHES:

RED RIVER (FORT'S MEETING HOUSE)

Red River Church was organized on July 25, 1791, by Elders Ambrose Dudley and John Taylor, near the confluence of Sulphur Fork Creek with the Red River, in the Mero District of North Carolina (this area is now in Montgomery County, Tennessee). There were eleven charter members, viz., Richard Thomas, George Neville, William Prince, Isaac Wilcox, Samuel Wilcox, Hannah Wilcox, Elizabeth Prince, Rachel Neville, Sophia Owens, Anne Neville, and Sarah Connell.
