[Comments:
1. Several churches in HCBA had the address of Star.  Perhaps the Star church listed referred to another church which had a post office address of Star.  
2. I have always assumed that Cowhouse Baptist Church and Pottsville Baptist Church were the same church; however BOTH are included in the above list. Only Pottsvile sent messengers.
3.  Both Evant and Sweethome were listed.  I have always assumed that both names represented the same church. Messengers were received only from Evant. --E. Weathers]
