It has been a few years since you wrote this post, so I am not sure if you are still online or interested.
My Grandparents Vernon Sebastian Myers (Griffing/Wiggins/Callender/Horton/Swayze) and Linnie Rogenia MAY (Brumfield/Holmes/Hart/GILL)were from Bogue Chitto, MS. Know from the MYERS side they were staunch Methodists, since his mother, Leona Rebecca GRIFFING was a Descendant of the Jersey Settlers and made him promise on her death bed not to convert to his wife's, Rogenia's "Baptist" faith! Later, he did become a Baptist and now my father is a retired southern Baptist minister, and my brother is a Baptist minister in Miami, FL!
My Mom gave me copies of a Bogue Chitto Baptist Church Directory from 1908 which must have been kept by my Grandmother. It has advertisements mixed with the lists of members.
Rev. William Emmett FARR, PASTOR (He is pictured.)
DEACONS: Dan BOLIAN, John D. BAILEY, G.H. VERNON
CHURCH CLERK: D.C.CONEY
It lists: COVENANT; ARTICLES OF FAITH, ETC.
There is also a picture of the church; very pretty with a tall steeple! I don't know if this church replaced the original one or if this one is still standing, since I am living in CA.
Please contact me if you would like a copy.
