In the book I have this in a chart form, but could not figure out how to do it here. This makes the information hard to follow. If someone knows a better way to fix it, I'd be glad to know.

I would like to know how to find out the names of the black members of Mount Carmel.

Hi, Pat--

The only membership list in the information I have is HERE. In the Mt. Carmel connections post I tried to sort out those on the list. I think all of these, at least those I identified, are white members. Two things: (1) some of the churches kept separate lists for black and white members, so that may be what is going on here; or (2) this list may have been made up after the black members began having separate meetings, so no black members are on the list.

I realize this doesn't help much. If I ever find anything else I will post it. Also if anyone else has any information, I would urge you to share with us.
