  1. Jim Gunn, grandson

    A young man by the name of John R. Gunn (born August 17, 1877) was licensed to preach by this church in 1891. His parents are buried in the adjacent cemetery. In 2012 and 2013 his most recent books were published. They can be found at: http://www.christianbook.com/Christian/Books/search?author=John%20R.%20Gunn&detailed_search=1&action=Search http://www.godtube.com/watch/?v=WK6G7PNX
