  • You drive around Lawrenceburg and see Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian and Catholic churches.
    There are, of course, many other religions world wide.
    When people ask why there are so many different religions, I have a fairly simple response. Like my preacher would say, there are really only two types of religion — religion of do or done — the difference being one is based on human accomplishment and one is based on divine achievement.

    J.D. Milton ran a blacksmith shop in Avenstoke in the early 1900s.
    After his wife died, he raised two boys and a girl.
    One of his sons, Millard Milton, became the postmaster at Avenstoke. The train that traveled through would pick up the mailbag from a hook on a post near the tracks, just like you see in the old westerns.
    J.D. Milton’s grandson and Millard’s son, Curtis Milton, was raised in Avenstoke. He brought in an old ledger a while back that came from his grandfather’s blacksmith shop.
