You will probably get some more detailed answers, but I know a little. Levin Edney was a devout Methodist minister. He helped to found Edney's Chapel in area around Pasquo in Davidson County west of the Harpeth River. On September 5, 1809, Newton Edney conveyed to his brother Levin Edney, Aquila Sugg and William Roach a lot, upon which a church building was erected known as Edney's meeting-house. It was destroyed by fire and later a more elegant building was built. It was kind of the forerunner to Bellevue Methodist Church. Levin worked with William McKendree, a famous name in the Methodist denomination right up there with Francis Asbury and John Wesley.
