    • NEWHOPE MONTHLY MEETING
      Greene County, Tennessee.
      Newhope Monthly Meeting was established in Greene County, Tennessee,28th of 2nd month, 1795, by direction of New Garden Quarterly Meeting and Westfield Monthly Meeting. Samuel Ellis was appointed to serve as clerk, Samuel Frazier as recorder, Benjamin Iddings, Ellis Ellis, Elihu Swain and Joseph Thornburgh as overseers, and Daniel Bonine and «i»George «/i»Haworth as overseers of the poor.
      Settlement by Friends in Greene County began as early as 1784. The meeting was first call-ed Nolichucky from the name of the stream on which the settlement was located. In 1789 a com- mittee appointed by New Garden Monthly Meeting to visit "the little meeting at Nolachuckey" re ported the appointment complied with to a degree of satisfaction. Certificates were ordered to be prepared for Thomas Embree and family, John Rambo, and Samuel Frazier and children, all resid- ing at Nolichucky, transferring their rights of membership to Westfield Monthly Meeting. West- field had been established in 1786 and it was thought to be more convenient for Tennessee Friends to have their membership there than at New Garden.
      "A preparative meeting was settled [at Nolichucky] on the fourth day the 12th of the 8th month, 1793, and the name of Newhope given to it shortly after."
      Other Friends who were members at Newhope before the establishment of the monthly meeting, or who became members soon afterward, include Moorman Ballard, James Barrett, John Bowater Beals, Jacob Beals, Daniel Bonine, Jacob Clearwater, Aaron Coppock, Ruth Davidson, Peter Dillon, Ellis Ellis, Mordecai Ellis, Samuel Ellis, Susannah Edmundson, James Fisher, Ezekiel Frazier, George Haworth, James Haworth, Moses Hoggatt, Benjamin Iddings, Evan Jones, Abram Marshall, William Neal, Benjamin Pickering, William Rees, Abraham Smith, Seth Smith, Thomas Stanfield, Jesse Willis, James Wright. Names of Friends living at Lost Creek, who were members of Newhope Month- ly Meeting prior to the establishment of Lost Creek Monthly Meeting, are noted in the introduc- tion to the records of the latter meeting.
      Meetings for worship under the jurisdiction of Newhope Monthly Meeting were established at Limestone (later a preparative meeting) Lick Creek, Shilo and Westland.
      Migration to Ohio began in 1804 with 16 certificates to Miami Monthly Meeting. Twelve more were issued to the same meeting in 1809, and five in 1806. During the next nine years about 15 certificates were directed to various meetings in Ohio and Indiana. Then came a period of 11 years, from 1816 to 1826, with no certificates to the Northern States, followed by a similar period, 1827 to 1837, of renewed activity. During this latter period about seven certificates were issued to Vermilion Monthly Meeting, Illinois, eleven to Duck Creek Monthly Meeting, Indiana, and four to other meetings in Ohio and Indiana.
      Newhope Monthly Meeting was attached to New Garden Quarterly Meeting until 1803, to Newhope and Lost Creek Quarterly Meeting (later called Lost Creek Quarterly Meeting) until 1888, to New Garden Quarterly Meeting from 1888 to about 1892, when it was transferred to Friendsville Quar- terly Meeting. In 1897 Friendsville Quarterly Meeting, then embracing all the meetings in Tennessee, was transferred from North Carolina Yearly Meeting to Wilmington Yearly Meeting in Ohio. Newhope Monthly Meeting was laid down about the same time.
      The existing records of Newhope Monthly Meeting, consisting of one volume of birth, death and marriage records and one volume of men's minutes (1795-1846), have been deposited at the Yearly Meeting House, Richmond, Indiana. The men's minutes subsequent to 1846 and all the women's minutes have been lost.
