The meeting of the freeholders of Fincastle County, on the 20th of January, 1775, in answer to the resolves of the Continental Congress was not the first meeting held for this purpose in the colony, but it was, as far as we have any record, the first meeting in which the freeholders declared that they were deliberately and resolutely determind never to surrender their inestimable privileges to any power upon earth but at the expense of their lives. The sentiments of this meeting were definitely stated by the Committee of Safety when they declared that the freeholders of Fincastle County did not desire to shake off their allegiance to their lawful sovereign as long as they could .... "JANUARY 5, 1773. "A call from the united congregations of Ebbing and Sinking Springs, on Holston's River, Fincastle County, to be presented to the Rev. Charles Cummings, minister of the Gospel, at the Rev'd Presbytery, of Hanover, when sitting at the Tinkling Spring:
......We entreat you, worthey and dear sir, to have compassion upon us in this remote part of the world, and accept this our call and invitation to the pastoral charge of our precious and immortal souls, and we shall hold ourselves bound to pray. In witness whereof, we hereunto set our hands, this 5th day of January, 1773. SAMUEL EVANS, ANDREW COLVILLE, THOMAS EVANS (pg 31)

I will give a list of their names, and it must be remembered that they were all Presbyterians. "These families were in the country previous to 1772: Andrew Colville, Samuel Evans (pg 98)
