New Hope Cumberland Presbyterian Church and Cemetery
Early membership records reveal the identities of early settlers on this portion of Bat Creek. Most of the grandparents of early members had come here from the Carolinas, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. They were largely a mixture of German, English, and Scotch-Irish having arrived to America in the early 1700s and migrated South and West as Native Americans were removed to the West.
The Leslie family has been associated with New Hope since James and Nancy moved to the old Albert Lowry place on Loudon Road where descendents continued to live. They previously lived in the southern part of Monroe, probably district 8. They migrated from South Carolina and the family is still active in New Hope Church today. Read more history...
