1. i saw this church on the PBS show about ancestor, Finding your roots or something like that. Notice the name E. Jeter, yep, Derek Jeter’s ancestor.

  2. somebody know what’s behind the naming of “New Convert?” I pass the turn-off sign for this every time I go to B’ham via Jemison. What’s up with that name????

  3. Any information on the first settlers of Alabama, The Stracner family? I’m doing research and it looks like our family was one of the first.

  7. I would like to know if anyone knows about a church in Samantha, Al. (Tuscaloosa County that was called Shady Grove? And another one in the same area called Philadelphia Baptist.

  8. Hi, my name is Corina Valdez and am looking for info on Macedonia Baptist church in plantersville tx. It is located on co. rd 206

  9. There are so many references to churches and cemeteries in the fork. This fork must be the intersection of Mt. Meigs Rd. and Wares Ferry Rd. in Mt. Meigs. This would be the intersection of US80 and Montgomery County Rd. 74. This is where the Antioch Church and cemetery is located. The church is gone of course but the cemetery as you see in the picture is still there. The sad part about this cemetery is that the historical part or oldest part is not very accessible. There are many old headstones back in the overgrown areas that spread for many acres. Some of them you can tell were ornate with brick and stone walls with wrought iron gates and fences. A few attempts awhile back were made to clear out this area but still could use more.

  10. I would like more information on the Old Liberty Baptist Church at “Carter Hill.” My Mother was baptized in that church about 1919. Can someone give me a more precise location of this church?
