Mt. Tabor Cumberland Presbytarian Church was established by letter dated 4 Jan 1861, signed by Rev. J. B. Cothran. A transcription from the Pastor's Journal is excerpted below with correction to spelling made for greater ease in reability.
By request of the members organized as Mt. Tabor to worship in a new church situated on the waters of Middle Fork of Drakes Creek in Warren (Simpson) County, State of Kentucky, in the bounds of the Logan presbytery, the members mostly from the Union congregation, Warren County, Kentucky. . . .

Note: Mary J. Richmond Lee, was the daughter of Robert F. Richmond and Amanda Jane Huffines. She was the granddaughter of Daniel and Mary Teel Huffines. Mary married Milton B. Lee, son of James Madison and Lerah Lee, between 1860 and 1864. Louisa Lee, mentioned in the above record, was the eldest child born to this union. A canvas of the cemetery, and tombstone photos currently in my possession, show that both Milton B. and Mary J. Richmond Lee were buried in the Cold Water cemetery on the Mt. Tabor Presbytarian Church grounds.
