NOTE: Those people with stars by their names are direct ancestors. Since there were no dates, there could have been more. I am related to the Higgins family too. I have no clue as to what the (u) meant by some names.
Would love more history about this church, and why they began it. Had family living on old Tank Pond road in late 1800's. Went down there but thought we might be shot by someone as it looked like we were going onto someone's property, so we turned around and left. My family are the Baughs, Bryants, Surbers, Cline/Klines, Youngs and Aldridges. Marlene
