Forest Grove was founded a few miles west of Lisbon, by Frank Taylor
and others, such as Dr. Scaife, Milton Barnett. Prior to 1850,
Contractor John C. Blackman built a Methodist church-house near Maj.
Dyer's house, six miles east of Homer. This building was moved to
Arizona in 1866. Scottsville stood north of Forest Grove, on the banks
of the Corni, and flourished for years at the supposed head of
navigation of that stream. But navigation never came. Yet such men
as Maj. Browning, Dr. Bush, Thomas Hart and the Stanleys gave it life
and vigor for years. Dawson Lodge No. 138, A. F. & A. M., was
organized here at an early date, and ceased in 1873. Colquitt, Gordon,
Haynesville, Summerfield, Homer, Arizona, Tulip, Aycock, Blackburn,
Cane Ridge, Dykesville, Holly Springs, Langston, Millerton and WARD's
MILL are the center of the old settlement of the parish as now
constituted. Terryville was the name given to an old center existing
before the war. In 1854 a Masonic lodge, No. 127, was organized there.
This ceased to exist in 1861. At Holly Springs another lodge (No. 211)
was chartered in 1870, and continued work until 1879, while Flat Lick,
where one of the earliest church organizations took place, claimed a
Masonic lodge from 1868 to 1883.
