Church and Family History Research Assistance
for Wayne County, Kentucky



Beaver Creek Church was organized by 1802 or earlier, and united with the Green River Association that year. Among the earliest members were Philiman Payne, Reuben Sympson, Joseph Beck, John Balloe, Thomas Merit, and the Coopers. Frederick Cooper came with Daniel Boone to Kentucky in 1775, and was with him when he recaptured his daughter and the Misses Calloway from the Indians in July of the following year. Frederick Cooper later served four years in the Revolutionary War. He was a messenger from this church to the Stockton's Valley Association in 1808. Elder Henry Cooper, Frederick's son, served this church for a period of time, and Elder Henry Cooper's son, Elder William ("Uncle Billy") Cooper also served here. Elder W. A. Cooper was honored for heroic behavior in the Civil War.


Otter Creek Church also united with the Green River Association in 1802, as a newly organized church.
