S. RUTGER, George & Marget HITE and Andrew HITE & Sara NEIBERGER.

You will find the History: Zion Hill (Paradise) Methodist Church.This is an outline that I have obtained from the estate of Margaret (Hite) Strader.I do not know of
the author, but it was written August 28, 1955.This outline also contains a list of preachers that had served the Paradise-Zion Hill Church from 1853 till 1953.
There is a book online for Marty and I.For the most part, it contains Marty's family.Prior to our divorce, I had concentrated a lot of time and research to his family ancestors.I find them very interesting and plan to continue my research on Marty's family line.Also, I have not ignored my ancestors...I just havn't taken the time to enter them into the computer.There is a lot of them!!I am almost to the point of drowning in information that needs to be inputed into the computer!
So, for now...HAPPY HUNTING.
