Baptist Churches in Jones County: 1890

Are there existing records of Baptist churches in Anson and surrounding area as early as 1890?

I am particularly interested in preachers William J. Patterson and/or John S. Patterson who would have been pastors of or missionaries to those Baptist Churches. Both families came to Jones County in 1888 from Arkansas. William J. Patterson moved on to Fisher County in 1890 where he as pastor of First Baptist Church, but John S. Patterson remained in Anson. In 1893, they both moved back to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) and established the Baptist Church in Hartshorne.

I will be grateful for any information about those early churches or either of those preachers.
