from "The Huguenot Bartholomew Dupuy and His Descendants." page 261:
"Rev. John Dupuy; the old "Dupuy's Meeting House," a Baptist church,
located in the Eastern part of Powhatan Co., Va., took its name from this man,
who, during the time that its pastor, Rev. David Tinsley, was seized by the hand
of persecution and incarcerated in the Chesterfield prison, was so stirred up
at the forlorn condition of the chruch that he began first as an exhorter, and
afterwards entered the ministry. A few years later, when Mr. Tinsley gave up
the charge, the church chose John Dupuy for its pastor, whose ministrations were
blessed with a revival, in which were large accessions to the membership. He
moved to Kentucky, and became a member of Clear Creek church, Woodford Co., in
1784. In 1801, he moved to Oldham Co., Ky., and joined the church at Patton's
creek; later, he settled in Shelbyville, Ky., but by request of the members of
the Patton's creek chruch, he retained his membership therein until his death;
