This minor classic in the literature of Kentucky genealogy is principally concerned with the family history of the church's early members. Situated near the conjunction of Franklin, Woodford, and Scott counties, the Elkhorn Church was a magnet for persons of the Baptist faith who had suffered under the established church in Virginia. In a series of sketches based on the old minute books of the church, the author recounts the church's early history; lists its founders, members, and pastors; and endeavors "to tell something of the families who worshiped at the Forks Church during the first half century of its existence." Several hundred families are traced by means of entries in the old minute book, family Bibles, wills, land records, tax lists, census records, and a variety of other sources, while family legends and traditions are also incorporated into the fabric of the genealogy. Here the researcher is furnished with places and dates of birth, marriage, and death; names of children, husbands, and wives; places of residence; and points of migration--as far as they could be determined by the author.

Documentation for this station is very sparse. Ardery (1939:14) places this site in present North Middletown which was formerly known as Swinneytown. Smith (1923:66) states that it was originally settled around 1783. Among the early inhabitants were William Adair who kept a tavern and James Cogswell who ran a store. No Virginia land grants are listed for Swinney name or its other common form, Sweeney. The only primary source of information found was in Shane's interview of James Hedge (Draper mss. 12CC117-120). Hedge stated that Swinney was married to a Huff. He sold lots for which he could not provide title after which the place became "dissipated" and owners hauled away houses. No determination of eligibility could be made for this site.
