Keatons in Methodist Church recordsPendleton, South CarolinaPhillip R. Stone, Wofford College Archivist, Spartanburg, South Carolina, [StoneRP@wofford.edu] to Nicole Dyer, email, 10 May 2018, "Ebenezer Methodist Church, 1800-1830s," William Keaton File, Keaton, Shults Family History; privately held by Dyer, [E-ADDRESS FOR PRIVATE USE,] Tucson, Arizona.From Phillip Stone: "Thanks for your inquiry about Ebenezer in the Pendleton area. I have checked, but we do not have any records from that church. If it is still open, then the local church itself may have some records. Local churches are responsible for their records unless they are closed. When they close, they are supposed to send their records to the archives, but that does not always happen. I’m afraid that in either case, we have no records from that congregation. Generally, in the early 19th century, churches didn’t leave many records behind."
