Notes for A
The Rev. Andrew's field of labor as a minister was in the Roanoke and James River valley of VA. where he and his sons filled many useful positions of trust and honor during the stormy period of the Revolutionary War 1776. According to published minutes of the Methodist Conference held at Fluvanna County, VA, 18 May 1779, we find Andrew one of the examining commitee to ascertain the fitness of candidates for the ministry, and in that year, he and William More travelled the Tar River Circuit of the Yadkin Circuit. The Yadkin Circuit was formed in 1780 from the Pittsylvania Circuit, with 21 members, and extended from beyond the Blue Ridge to he SC line. Andrew Yeargan was its first pastor. he planted Methodism in all that part of the state known as the Yadkin Valley.
