Hello! I am searching for any and all surviving church records from HOPE, at Lavaca County, Texas. Did the records of the HOPE METHODIST CHURCH survive? If so, where might they be? I am looking for mention of Elias Sweet FARRAR (1816-1868) and his wife Candace Case BAILEY Farrar (1824-1869). I have been told that NO NEWSPAPERS at all from the 1860's survived from Lavaca County, Texas so any church records would be especially valuable. Thanks!
