1797.021: Minutes of the Ketocton Baptist Association (August 1797).

Published: 1797

Full Title: Minutes of the Ketockton Baptist Association, held at Frying-Pan, Loudoun County, August 1797.

Author: Ketocton Baptist Association.

Place Issued: Virginia

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 8 pgs.


Meeting was largely a discussion of the legitimacy of slavery, and ended with a proposal for gradual emancipation set into the minutes for the consideration of the member churches in advance of the 1798 association meeting. Title lacks printer credit; minutes for 1796 meeting were published in Dumfries by Thomas Thornton (1796.037), but that press closed about mid-November 1796; the minutes of the 1798 meeting were published in Winchester by Richard Bowen (1798.052), so this title may have issued there as well; but the possibility that it was printed in Alexandria makes such a specific attribution unsupportable without other evidence.
