Rev. Neill McKay, D.D.
Abstracted from History of Sandy Grove Church - pg.21

In the Spring of 1872 Rev. Neill McKay, D. D., commenced giving a monthly service 
which continued for two years. His superior ability as a man and a minister was
acknowledged by all.  The only regret was he was with them so seldom.  His home was
remote from them, more than forty miles, which made it impracticable for him
to do much visiting or preaching other than at the stated appointments.  it is rather a 
remarkable fact that all the stated supplies of this church since 1865 have lived at 
a distance, not nearer than twenty miles.  This has been unfortunate in different
respects.  They have consequently not had the advantages of pastoral visitation, that
comingly of pastor and people, which often is of great advantage to both.
