Also see . . .  How "Historic" Are Truro Church and The Falls Church?. By By Joan R. Gundersen, Ph.D. Gunderson argues that the current congregations at the Falls Church and the Truro Church are not the same as the colonial congregations that originally occupied these sites. "Neither is the direct descendant of a colonial parish. Neither can claim George Washington as a past member of its vestry or its congregation. Both are "new" church plants from the 1830s and 1840s."
