I am researching the oldest child of Rev. John Alter. Her name was Helenor (Alter, Draper) Davisson, and she was the first woman ordained in the Methodist tradition. She was born in PA and moved to Indiana as a child. What I am looking for is any information about the children of Rev. John Alter and Charity VanAusdall. Their names were John Wesley, Issac VanAusdall, David, Ester, Hannah, Jacob, and Benjamin. I would really like to know if any writings or photographs still exist. It is said that Rev. John encouraged all his children to keep journals. I know of a photograph of David, but no one else.
Can anyone help???? Thanks! Rev. Chris Shoemaker Georgetown, GA
