Some explanations are needed. Churches in boldface are either listed on the National Register or are otherwise of special interest. If the name of the church is in brackets [ ] I am in doubt as to the founding congregation. The Sect is the original religious denomination when the church was built. Fields left blank are those for which I have no solid information.
