Liberty Presbyterian Church, located on Routes 92/28 in Green Bank, dates from the 18th Century. According to records, Reverend John McCue, who ministered in Presbyterian congregations at Lewisburg and Union, visited Green Bank Presbyterians in the late 1700's and referred to the group as the "Head of Greenbrier" congregation. Both Presbyterian and Methodist residents of Green Bank began meeting regularly as early as 1804 in a log building near the Arbovale Ceme- tery named Deer Creek Union Church. The Presbyterian group was officially established in 1820 by Reverend Aretas Loomis, first pas- tor. In 1838 the church became a charter member of the Greenbrier Presbytery. It did not have its own building until the present struc- ture was built in 1851, when the congregation was named "Liberty Presbyterian Church." Reverend David Bush has been the minister since 1985.

The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, August 30, 1990 31] By Helen W. Searle During the reign of Henry VIII, from 150.9 to 1547. the Cht, rch of England, allhough remaining Catholic in (lotqritze, split form Rome. When ttem-y's son Edward VI became king in 1547, the movement towards Protestantisnz spread rapidly un- til his early death in 1553. De- spile an effori to bring tile l.~qcly Jane Grey, a Protestant, to the throne, Mary, daughter of Cath- erine of Aragon, became Queen of England. (tier rights to suc- cession, even lhough she clung stubbon-dy to tile Catholic l,dlh, were curiously and strongly pro- letted by Parliament.) Thanks to legislation from Henry VIII, Mary also became head of the English church, hnmediately exercising her authority, she restored com- munication wilt, Rome. A papal legate an'wed and administered absolution to a full Parliament thus freeing lhe kingdom from guilt Incurred from the schism of Henry VIII and the heresy trader Edward VI. Determined to win lbreign in- fluence and to mairttain tile strength of tile Church, Mary pursued a marriage with her cousin Philip lI of Spain. The marriage was Izoi only unt)opu- lar among her countrymen, tile results were unhappy. In 1558 Mary died childless, altering per- haps, the entire course of politi- cal and religious history in Eng- land and Europe. Queen Elizabeth, as was the custom of her half-sister MaW and many other Monarchs on the continent, tblt (he only way to uphold royal authorily, pre- vent disorder, civil war, and lbr- eign aggression, was to dictale retighms beliefs. Exch, sive of the pope, Elizabeth endorsed a n, odified Proteslanl theology. Re- taining the outward lorm of ttle Catholic religion, size named her chtlrch Anglican and. under penalty of death, denied public worship to all dissenters. Twenty years of persistent plots to overthrow Elizabeth, presumed lo revolve around heir to throne Mary Queen of Scot- land, coerced Parlian]ent in 1587 to entbrce the death pen~ly on all traitors. Falher Richard Wet- sol, was one of the victims. When Fr. Watson was iinpris- oned at [3ridewell, a gentle- woman. Margaret Ward, along with her Irish servant John Roche, alias Neale. from Congle- ion in Cheshire, aided in his es- cape and stlbsequent hiding. Both were arrested. If they of- fered their pardon before the queen and told of the pricers whereabouts they would be granted freedom. On AugusI 30, 1588. for not divulging tile hid- ing place of the priest, both Mar- garet and "Neale" were hanged, drawn and quartered at tile la- indus square of execution, "l}burn. In 1970 Pope Paul VI carion- ized Margaret Ward as a salrlt of the church. She Is remembered on her feast (lay August 30. St. Thomas Episcopal Church 205 W.
