I'm doing research on some church histories in New Sharon: Baptist, Universalist and the two Free Will Baptist. Goal is to publish histories of these former churches. Anyone who wants to add data, please contact me.

Thank you.

I have a copy of A sermon from a Freewilll Baptist minister who lived in the New Sharon, Industry, Starks area. John Spinney. I am a descendant. My email address is kathrynelizabethsusbauer@yahoo.com

I am also interested in any info on the Freewill Churches in Franklin County/ Somerset. I also have family ties through my grandmother's family to Amariah Joy who trained and spent time in Farmington before finally settling in Michigan.

In 1803 the Baptist Church at New Sharon was admitted to the Bowdoinham Association with their 22 members (History of the Baptists in Maine -- Burrage p. 139) I know there is more and I will update as soon as I come across it.

Google books has a free copy of "A History of the Baptists in Maine" by Joshua Millett.  If you type in pages 183 and 184 in page browser you will find some information on the Baptists at New Sharon.
