1. My grandmother and daddy are buried there – Edgar.

  2. I have the book, Canaan-Garden Spot by the Cuttacochee. 1818-1968. My 4x great grandmother was a member.

  3. My 4th great grandparents, Sarah and John Nicholas Jacks Jr were charter members of Canaan. They left with Hosea Halcombe to establish Rhuhama which was chartered in their home.


  5. We are a growing active church today. We are carrying on the legacy and truth of those who have gone before us. May the Lord continue to find us faithful. Worship services and Sunday School might be a little different than 200 years ago, but the message and application for today is still relevant!

    We still have some of the previous history books available for donations.

  6. My grandparents,several aunts,uncles and cousins now rest at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Bessemer Alabama. Thank you for sharing the information about the first Baptist Church in Jefferson County. It was a lot of knowledge that I was unaware.

  7. Most of my family is buried there. Siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents. I probably will be too.
