Can anyone advise where the actual minutes (not the abstracts) can be located for this church, which was actually just over into Caswell Co., NC?

Hello Richard Hazel,

The last I heard, the repository for the Primitive Baptist Church Records was located in the town of Elon College, NC. (not on campus) However the library on campus of Elon University may be able to provide you with the contact person. Also I believe that if you entered "Primitive Baptist" "History" "Records" "Elon" into a Google search, you should come up with an address or location for the Archives. The church was organized in the early 1800's, as I recall, and it was burned sometime in the 1970's after it was no longer required for worship services. There is a graveyard which remains, just off highway 86 from Hillsborough to Yanceyville. It is not far from the crossroads of highway 49 and 86. There is a family cemetery very near it for the Malone family. One of my ancestral uncles, William Willis Wells was ordained to the ministry in the Lynches Creek Congregation, and served as preacher/minister there in the later years of his life. His father, my GGGG grandfather, Miles Wells, was one of the organizers of the Church.

We may have shared conversations previously, as I am a descendant of Bennett Hazell of Orange/Alamance County, NC, who lived very near the Union Ridge area.

Best regards,

John Fox

Many thanks, John. I've been to the PB library, out on NC 87, near Elon, but unfortunately they do not have the minutes, only the abstracts.

thereof, for Lynches Creek PBC?  I have spoken with Earnest Blaylock, nephew
of the gentleman who did the index (of which I have a copy) and he could
provide no info on their whereabouts.  They obviously exist somewhere, but I
have had no luck locating them.  The NC Archives seem to only have the
index.  I am researching some of the early "Free Colored" families who were
members there. (Jeffries, Corn, Jones, Hood, Haithcock, Guy, etc.)

Surnames: Smith, Compton, Campbell, O'Kelly
I have been researching my Smith family that lived near Lynches Creek in Caswell County NC and the Compton family that they married into. There are some of Lynches Creek records on the Aquilla Compton websites that are out there that show limited church records. I descend rom Joseph B Smith (son of Robert) who married Susannah Compton (granddaughter of Aqilla) in 1816. LCPBC records show that his uncle, William Smith, who was involved in the church, acted as bondsman. At the time of William Smith's death in 1820, John Landers was one of the witnesses to the Smith Will. Landers was the pastor at LCPBC at that time according to the minutes posted on the AC websites. Reverend Landers wife was Lucy (Johnston) who died in NC before 1830 when Landers went on to preach in Georgia. A Robert Campbell was an executor to he Wm Smith Will, but I have been unable to find him or determine his relationship to this Smith family. One of the heirs to the will was a William O'Kelly, son of William O'Kelly. I cannot determine that relationship, either. Any assistance on these family members would be appreciated.
