Treats in Frontier Religion

Greetings all!

I am an Arkansas Treat living in Maine and a descendent of Stephen Treat (born PA, 1811, died Big Flat,AR 1885). I am interested in assembling information on the family’s religious history.

As many of you know, information on the Treats’ role in the religious life of colonial CT and NJ is plentiful. I am having more difficulty in pinning down the circumstances surrounding my branch of the family’s joining the Restoration Movement which gave birth to both the Disciples of Christ and to the churches of Christ.

This conversion must have taken place between 1810 and 1835 as the family passed through Western Pennsylvania, OHIO, and finally Indiana. Unfortunately, these are exactly the years and locations where the growth of the Restoration Movement was most intense.

Any information on this conversion or other aspects of the Treats’ 19th century religious history would be most appreciated.
