Thanks to generous responses from other S-I readers and SCABBEVI-L@rootsweb,
I am now able to attribute the source for the Tinkling Spring: Headwater of
Freedom, A Study of the Church and Her People 1732-1952. authored by Howard
McKnight Wilson, Th.D 1954 (2d edition 1974), published by theTinkling Spring
and Hermitage Presbyterian Churches, Fisherville, VA. This is Ft. Definace
territory (Virginia Synod). The printer was McClure, Vernon, VA.
My first posting included 32 locations. I have discovered that I omitted the
#33 - Near Cataba (Catawba) - West of Buchannon, VA
#34 - Tinker Creek - near Cloverdale, VA
#35 - Burdon's Grant (Borden's)
#36 - Joseph Kinkels = South side Ridge, East of Jarmon's
#37 - Bulskin - in PA
These baptisms were by the Reverend Mr. John Craig. The book has a biography
of the Reverend Mr. Craig, but I did not take notes from the biography.
