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.

Dee- these are great photos- I have a few like this of my country church. My grandma used to talk about baptizing in the river, brush arbor meetings, and all day singings.--It's sad- the cemeteries are getting larger. --Terri Buster
