History of Methodism in Alabama
A History of Methodism in Alabama by Anson West, 1893
Included in Chapter XI of A History of Methodism in Alabama is a discussion of the Chattahoochee Mission and Chattahoochee Circuit of the Methodist Church which included Henry County, Alabama but also initially included Early County, Georgia and parts of north Florida. In 1825, when it became the Chattahoochee Circuit, it was mostly on the Alabama side of the Chattahoochee, the Early Mission taking the Georgia side. By 1826, the Chattahoochee Circuit was "nearly or quite all" in Alabama. It extended from the Chattahoochee River to the Choctawhatchee River and from the Florida line to the Indian Boundary and the headwaters of the Choctawhatchee.
A searchable copy of A History of Methodism in Alabama is available on line compliments of Google Books.
The following ten ministers preached for the Chattahoochee Mission and Chattahoochee Circuit prior to 1830.
- Jesse Boring (1827)
- Elisha Calloway (1827)
- John L. Jerry (1825)
- Jeremiah Norman (1828)

Should any of the nine men who served the Chattahoochee Circuit be deemed a pre-1830 Henry County, Alabama Pioneers? They never settled in Henry County, but rather, served for only one to two years while preaching on the Chattahoochee Circuit which covered more territory than just Henry County?
I'm not so sure.
Do you find this valuable?
