While I was at my dad's house, I took pictures of some more of his pictures.

What we believe to be the first building that became St. Joe Freewill Baptist Church - where my g-g-grandpa set up a Sunday school under a brush arbor until they could get a building - and the very beginning of the cemetery, way over to the right.

St. Joe as I remember it when I was little kid, going to "Decoration" on Mother's Day...

There's a very nice, modest brick building there now.

And a much larger cemetery.




This is a Sepia Saturday post.

Thinking about it, it makes sense that the cemetery would get larger as more and more people die and need to be buried. The little white frame church is a very handsome building.
