Been looking for my Alexander McClain who was in Nicholas County about
1813-1829. We are now chasing a New Light Church connection. The name
index to The Christian Messenger gives, for a couple of meetings in that
Williamsport, Ohio, Mar. 13, 1827, report of conference in Bear
District by Fergus Graham and Enoch Harvey. Names of elders: B. W. Stone,
Hughes, F. R. Palmer, ... J. Caldwell.

Alexander McClain married Elizabeth Caldwell in Nicholas County in 1813.
Their first child was named Francis Palmer. Alexander became a New Light
minister and was active in Brown and Adams County, Ohio, after their move
there in 1829.
Does anyone have any information about the New Light movement in Nicholas
County in these years? Any information on Francis R. Palmer and J. Caldwell
of this church?
