History of Dade County and Her People
From the Date of the Earliest Settlements to the Present Time:
The early history of the Cumberland Presbyterian church in Dade County is shrouded more or less in tradition, but there are a few well-established facts which I desire to submit to the Dade County History.
Among the early ministers of this church I will mention Rev. A. A. Young, who visited Dade County and later settled in Lawrence County on Honey creek about eight miles northwest of Aurora. Rev. J. D. Montgomery and Rev. TV. J. Garrett both settled in Dade County. Rev. Garrett in Greenfield and Rev. Montgomery on a farm four miles northeast of Greenfield now owned by the Scott family. Rev. James Tucker was also among the very early preachers of the state to settle in this county. He settled on the farm now owned by John Stockton near the Ed Dicus farm northeast of Greenfield. He was the father of Mrs. Scott, who lived and died on the Emerson Scott farm. She was 9 (5 years old at the time of her death, and the mother of James, Hambleton, Ab. Perry, Price and Emerson Scott and Mrs. Narcissus Winkle.
