Wanting to leave personal info on Rev. C. W. KARNS who was the minister of the Methodist Church at the end of the 1800s and perhaps for a few years later. I understand that a book has been written about him, and probably it is related to his work with the circuit of churches there at that time. Could anyone help with his personal vitals. Thanks, Jean Ladd, jladd@ionet.net

Also, anyone with knowledge of meaning of 'late guardian' as it applies to Michael INGLE please explain to me. I have found that all of the names in these references are quite different from those used at your Reformed Church. I elected not to change the court record.

On the motion and instance, as above, Michael INGLE was appointed guardian over the other children of Peter FOUST dec'd, namely, John, Margaret, Sara & Susannah, under 14 years of age. MARY FOUST, over 14, chose Michae lINGLE as guardian. Approved. (20 February 1792) Upon application by Memorial of Jacob GLASSNER, Jr and on motion of W. NAWGLE the court appointed Jacob GLASSNER, Jr., & George BURKET as joint guardians over John, Peggy, Sally & Susannah Foust, minor children of Peter FOUST, dec'd, in place of Michael INGLE, late guardian.
