Notes John Fly was a faith healer, son Caleb a preacherboth preached at Goshen Church which is also the United Methodist Church
Marrages from Tenn. Marriage Book
Deaths - cemetery records
Church info from Goshen Church compiled by Hewell Baker Shouse, March 1984 in a reply to my letter to the church..Methodist Church from Methodism in Tenn.Mentions John Fly.Also, He was not a Methodist Preacher - He was a faith healer per letter from Methodist Church.
Perhaps someone sees where more info can be filled in on these individuals.Questions about dates can be verified by cemetery records and the person of Mr. Vance Little.
Oh, Goshen Church is actually Goshen United Methodist Church.
Perhaps this might help someone that is related to this line of Flys.
