* - Those with an asterisk by their name are circled in the document.
+ - It was reported March 16, 1861, that "colored Sister Harriet" formerly property of Brother William H. Buckner, had been absent from this part of the state for some time and no one knew her residence, so her name was removed from the church roll. BBC, Pastoral Gallery - p.6

     The Minutes of 1861 also report: "In September, a committee was appointed to determine the whereabouts of certain "colored" members who had absented themselves from the church, having not notified the church of their leaving." BBC, Pastoral Gallery - p.6
