Swedens/Sweetens Cove Primitive Baptist Church Records

Classification: Query
Surnames: RAY, OVERTURF
Is anyone familiar with Jerry Blevins books for these records? There seem to be several different versions which vary in length quite a bit and I'm wondering what they contain.

Union Primitive Baptist Church book, 1821-1868 (1987) 125 pages.

Union Primitive Baptist Church book, 1821-1868 : name changed in 1834 to Sweeten's Cove Primitive Baptist Church, Marion County, Tennessee (1987) 125 pages. [Edited version of the above?]

Old Primitive Baptist Church Books, Marion County, Tennessee (1992) 71 pages.

On the Marion Co website there are some church rolls for this church:

Were these rolls taken from Jerry Blevins' books?

I am particularly interested if there is any information in these books regarding Ray (and Overturf) families. The names of Thomas Ray, Hannah Ray and John Overturf have appeared together in some land documents and I think the families may be related in some way. I have found the names of John and Jane Overturf in the rolls [above] so the Ray families may also be associated with the Sweetens Cove Church.

Any help would be appreciated.
