I have recently received from a McCraney descendant of Maitland, Florida, a copy of the HISTORY of SANDY GROVE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH.
This seventy-five page booklet was compiled by M.A. Patterson and A.D. Carswell and published by its members about August 1925. It is 
dedicated to the memory of The Rev. David Fairley, D.D., Man of God, venerable and saintly Minister of the Gospel, who gave thirty-seven 
years of tireless service to the Sandy Grove Church, and who entered into his eternal rest October 23rd, 1912.

Mr. Carswell writes: "This book is a brief history of Old Sandy Grove Church. We have earnestly endeavored to bring before the eyes 
of the public the most outstanding events in the history of this church. But to keep the book from being too voluminous some very important 
and interesting details have necessarily been omitted. We regret very much indeed that some valuable materials were destroyed by Sherman's 
Army, which would have been a great contribution to this work".

We are greatly indebted to members of the Church, and friends who have contributed so liberally of their valuable time in collecting 
information, and putting same in the form of manuscripts, which have been used verbatim.

"We wish to record our deep appreciation of the generous assistance rendered by the following: 
Rev. Eugene Alexander, former pastor of Sandy Grove Church; Rev. R.A. McLeod, pastor of the Galatia Church, for copying the manuscript 
of the late David Fairley D.D.; Mr. J.W. McLauchlin of Raeford, and Mr. J. McN. Johnson of Aberdeen, NC."
