History of First Baptist Church Of Hawkinsville, Pulaski County, Georgia

The First Baptist Church of Hawkinsville was organized January 3. 1830, in Old Hartford, when the present site of Hawkinsville was little, more than a wilderness. The presbytery consisted of Rev. Wilson Conner, Rev. Job Thigpen, and Rev. Levi Bush. The following were the charter members: Joseph Hough, Edward Hough, Wright Lancaster, Furney F. Gatlin, Elizabeth McCreary, Lucinda Holliman, and a slave by the name of Berryman belonging to William Jelks. For two years or more the church held its services in the Hartford courthouse, the courthouse not being moved to Hawkinsville until 1837. It is interesting to note that the church and Hawkinsville were chartered the same year-1830. Rev. Wilson Conner, first pastor and leading spirit in the organization of the church, seems to have served as pastor approximately twelve years. He was a man of deep piety and great power as a preacher. Under his leadership the church grew rapidly. The monthly services were held on the second Sunday and the Saturday preceding. New members were received almost every month, many of whom were slaves. The church was received into the Ebenezer Association in 1831. Great religious destitution on all sides of the young church challenged it to an extensive program of evangelization. In conference the pastor and certain of the members were authorized to receive and baptize those living too far from Hartford to attend there....

History of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Pulaski County, Georgia

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church was erected in 1871. Before that time the church had very few members here. Dr. and Mrs. Golding came to Hawkinsville in January 1862. Mrs. Golding wrote Rev. H. K. Rees, rector of Christ Church in Macon, informing him that several young people here were interested in the church, and suggested that he come and hold services. He accepted the invitation, came and held services at the Methodist Church and baptized a class consisting of Dr. C. H. Golding, Mr. F. H. Bozeman, and Mr. Thomas Carruthers. This was the first Episcopal service ever held in Hawkinsville. Later, this class, including Miss Carrie Pooler. daughter of Mrs. Golding, was confirmed in Macon at Christ Church by Bishop Elliott, the first Episcopal Bishop of Georgia. In September, 1869, Judge John Henry and family moved to Hawkinsville. Services were now held regularly at Wimberly’s Hall on Commerce Street. Ministers from Macon came at intervals to hold these services and a Sunday school was organized. Mr. F. H. Bozeman was appointed lay leader and superintendent of Sunday school. A Bible class was organized with Judge Henry as teacher. His daughter, Amanda Henry (Mrs. S. M. Caldwell) was the first child to become a member of the Sunday school. A building fund was soon commenced for the erection of a church. Those who contributed to this fund were: Bishop...

History of The Houston Circuit

Until 1821 the Ocmulgee River had been the western boundary of the State of Georgia as well as the boundary of Pulaski County. There were no white settlements west of the Ocmulgee prior to this date, because the territory between the Ocmulgee and Flint Rivers belonged to the Lower Creek Indians and was used by them as hunting grounds. On January 8, 1821, a treaty was made between the whites and Indians at Indian Springs which opened this section to white settlers. The new territory attracted home seekers and enterprising planters. At once the South Carolina Conference took cognizance of the new country, and created the Houston Circuit in January 1825, and Rev. McCarroll Purifoy was appointed as preacher for that year. The Houston Circuit was exceedingly large. All Methodist circuits were very much larger then than now. It is known to have included the present counties of Houston, Dooly, West Pulaski, Wilcox, and Crisp. Some of the regularly established appointments for 1825 were Hawkinsville, Vienna, Drayton, and probably Snow. The First Methodist Church in Hawkinsville is to be dated from the establishing of this regular appointment of Rev. McCarroll Purifoy in the above-named year. There were no church buildings within the bounds of the Houston Mission when it was organized, yet this did not deter the coming of the Methodist preacher. He was on the ground before the...

History of Wesley Chapel, Pulaski County, Georgia

Wesley Chapel was organized more than one hundred years ago (no record of exact date available). It is situated near the line of Pulaski and Dooly Counties. The first building was of logs, cut and hewn out by those and others who organized and constituted the first church. A number of years ago the old log building had served its day and generation and had to be torn down to make room for a new building. It also was built of logs. Later it, too, gave place to a new frame building which the congregation now occupies. This historic church has had as pastors some of the pioneer preachers of the South Georgia Methodist Conference, outstanding in the realm of religion. “Uncle Jimmie” Anthony, as his followers. and friends lovingly called him, also known as the “Bishop of the Wiregrass,” was a former pastor. He was the father of Rev. Bascom Anthony, a preacher and philosopher whose writings are read by hundreds of admirers. He was also a relative of Miss Bessie Anthony, one of the most beloved residents of the city of Hawkinsville. Other ministers of Wesley Chapel were: Rev. E. A. Burch, minister for several years, and father of Mrs. R. F. DeLamar of Hawkinsville; Rev. Jackson, son of Charles Jackson; Albert Segars; John Lowe, who rode horseback from Abbeville a distance of thirty miles to fill...

History of Baptist Church at Corinth, Pulaski County, Georgia

In 1866, soon after the close of the “War Between the States,” John Godwin and Daniel Fann, two consecrated Baptist ministers, were appointed to act as a presbytery to draw up articles of faith for a Baptist Church at Corinth, an Old Field School, about three miles east of Hawkinsville. The following brethren and sisters assented to the articles drawn up and were duly constituted into a regular Baptist Church, October 12. 1866: M. B. Fann, Miles Bembry, W. G. Fleming, Jacob Fausky, J. E. Holmes, J. W. Lancaster, J. W. Sapp, Martha Fann, Sarah A. Bembry, Sarah L. Bembry, Marina Bembry, Marina Fleming, Mary Fleming, Sarah Fleming, Mary Fauskey, Martha Holmes, Elizabeth Hodge. Corinth is a branch of Limestone church, which was founded in 1833, and was organized for purposes of convenience. The church building dates back to 1878, when, according to the old record, on February 9th, Brother Miles Bembry proposed to the conference to furnish lumber for a new house of worship, provided the church would give him the old school building. Brother J. W. Sapp agreed to give 8,000 shingles, and J. W. Lancaster to furnish the windows. A building committee consisting of R. T. Bembry, J. W. Lancaster, and J. E. Holmes was appointed, and, on July 22, 1878, work was begun. A very comfortable though not very large house was soon completed, which...

History of First Methodist Episcopal Church South, Pulaski County, Georgia

The Methodist Church is, likewise, identified with the earliest history of Pulaski County. It was in November of 1805 that Henry Dearborn, Secretary of War, negotiated a treaty between the Indians and the Federal Government for lands between the Oconee and Ocmulgee Rivers. On December 15, 1808, the Georgia legislature passed an act creating Pulaski County from a part of this territory. And in January of 1809 the South Carolina Annual Conference, which embraced all of Georgia at that time, created the “Oakmulgie Circuit.” This circuit embraced Pulaski County. Within one month after the county was created and two years before Hartford was incorporated, the Methodist circuit rider was preaching in Pulaski. Preaching was done at cross-roads and homes of village and country folk. However, in 1819, the Methodists erected a church building several miles from Hartford, up the Milledgeville road. This Methodist Church building in Pulaski was located in the corners of lots of land numbers 249, 261, and 262 of the 21st District. The land upon which the church building stood was conveyed by warranty deed, July 22. 1819, to Messrs. John Carruthers, R. W. M. Wynne, and William McCormack, trustees (office clerk of court of Pulaski, Book G, pp. 1, 2, 3). The congregation located their building at a strategic point for those distant days and drew its members from the red lands as well as...
