Re: Church Records of VA have a CONFLICT
Yes the sources are what someone published but they were supposedly taken from original church records.

New Kent county was formed in 1654 taken from Charles River County one of the original counties.
Middlesex county was formed in 1669 from Lancaster County which was formed in 1652 from Northumberland Couny.
By the 1700's New Kent county and Middlesex county borders were well established.The two counties were many, many miles apart from each other.
St. Peters Parish is located near the town of Tallysville, New Kent Co., VA.
Christ Church is located near the town of Saluda, Middlesex Co., VA.
The churches were in that location in the 1700's.
So the names and dates may correspond, however that doesn't explain how people can be at two places at once especially since the two places are many, many miles apart.
So the question still remains:
Which church records are correct???
