The 1799 Pilgrimage of Shoal Creek Church

Tugaloo RiverRev. Thomas Gilbert was the moderator of the Sarepta Association and a very aged man at the meeting of Falling Creek in 1804. Rev. Gilbert removed from Perquimans County, North Carolina to Franklin County, Georgia and it is said that at one time he owned 100,000 acres of land in North Georgia and Tennessee. He was the first to go to Louisville, Georgia to frame the Constitution for the State of Georgia and he was past the age of 90 years when he died in Hartwell, Georgia on the summit of a beautiful hill overlooking the verdant valley and limpid stream of the Tugaloo River.
