A short history written by Gladys L Hoover in 1973 contains invaluable local history of Georgetown and its two churches: St Luke’s Episcopal Church and the Methodist Episcopal Church. Both faiths have changed their original affiliations since Capt Thomas Potts’ time due to the many splits and mergers in the Methodist and Episcopal Churches. The wife of Capt Thomas Potts according to this newspaper article, raised a considerable sum of money in 1877 for the building fund of the new Methodist Church.
