Several children of my 3g-grandparents James and Mary McCord Johnson were listed as being born and baptized in Old Hanover Church records 1788-1790. The church is long gone but was at the site of the Old Hanover Presbyterian Churchyard Cemetery grounds in East Hanover township near Grantville. Marriages also were registered there among members of the allied families.
I do not know exactly were my ancestors lived but obviously close enough to call this their church for at least a period of time.
Rev. John Edler associated with the Paxtang and Derry Presbyterian churches also seemed to be a figure often mentioned in records of my family. Could they have gone to both churches? Or switched at some point? Or were memberships transferred for some reason?
I'm grasping at straws and hoping someone with some expertise can share their thoughts.
Is anyone reading this familiar with those times and from what distance people would be traveling to church? Did they have lots of options? Might they have traveled a considerable distance?
Thanks for any help.
