Jonathan Paulk, husband of Ruth Stearns, attended the Baptist mininstry of Shuebel Stearns in Va, and NC. He continued with Daniel Marshall into Georgia.
There is a book, History of the Sandy Creek Baptist Association From 1758 to 1858, by Purefoy, available. I was able to borrow the book from Bob Jones University. Frankly, it was of limited use, but did notate the original members. I feel you know this book.
The wife of Jonathan Paulk was Ruth Stearns, as you probably know,too,but did not mention.
You mentioned a second Shubel Stearns on the ministry. Did the original Shubel Steans, the proprietor of Tolland, Conn., migrate as your note indicates? As you said, Shubel
had no surviving progeny. I did not know the father followed the son?
