John Mulkey was one of Barton Stone’s earliest pioneer preachers. Mulkey’s notoriety arose from the 1809 split that happened at the Mill Creek Church; however, Mulkey’s full impact within the Stone-Campbell Movement has not been fully examined. Noting Mulkey’s contribution to Stone’s reform will allow Mulkey recognition within Stone-Campbell Movement history.
