Biographical or historical data
South River Monthly Meeting was established from Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting in 1757 and was initially composed of two societies, South River and Goose Creek, in the then much larger area of Bedford County. Campbell County was formed from Bedford County in 1782. In 1794, Goose Creek Monthly Meeting, also known as the Bedford Meeting, became a separate monthly meeting, but was discontinued in 1814; its members returned to South River. The bounds of South River Monthly Meeting included the counties of Albemarle, Amherst, Bedford, Campbell, Franklin, Halifax, Henry, Patrick, and Pittsylvania. Some of the entries in the records described below have been transcribed in, QUAKER RECORDS OF SOUTH RIVER MONTHLY MEETING, VIRGINIA, 1756-1800, by F. Edward Wright, 1993.
