Pastors of Fairforest Church
The following persons are mentioned as having been stated or occasional supplies in times past—some before the first pastor and others in the intervals between the time of one pastor and another: The Rev. Messrs. McCollough, James Templeton, Robert Hall, Humphrey Hunter, William C. Davis, Francis Cummins, S. B. Wilson, Francis Porter, Jeptha Harrison and John Boggs. Under the labors of several of these men, seasons of revivals have passed in this congregation, when Zion has been enlarged and beautified. But the spirit of emigration has carried off successive colonies of her children to seek homes in the Far West until the congregation is now greatly reduced in numbers. It is, however, consolatory to know that these colonies have constituted a nucleus around which new congregations have sprung up and new churches have arisen in the wilderness from the vigorous scions nurtured in old Fairforest.
