In the early 1960s Mary Brownlow Kerr noticed these Sunday School record books were 
being handled improperly at the church.  She rescued them from further defamation by 
storing them in her home.  The books have now been donated to the Giles County 
Historical Society and can be found in the Museum located in the Giles County Library.  
There are a number of now unfamiliar names listed.  Perhaps you may find an elusive 
relative there.
