The Preface describes the 23 preachers in this collection as “distinguished ministers of their respective denominations”: “Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, and Cumberland Presbyterian” (pp. v, vi). The proposed “female college” would be built in Kentucky, but the ministers came from around the nation; only the 3 ministers with verifiable ties to Appalachia are included in the Library.
