My G-G-Grandfather John W. Potter was a Methodist preacher "licensed to preach in 1845 in AL". He was born near the current Crawford County, GA around 1818, moved to AL around 1836, and settled in the Cherokee/DeKalb/Etowah area.
What kind of paper trail would this leave? What were the requirements to be a licensed preacher?
Would he have attended seminary school, and if so what were the likely schools in AL / GA?
Who licensed preachers: the govt, or the Methodist church. Would any records have been kept?
His brothers were Baptist ministers. Similar questions.
