Salem Baptist Church
J. F. Tharp & Jacob Mercer were listed as delegates to the 1827 Association meeting.
This is one of only a few references I have found to this church but can't find where it was located. It is mentioned here in September of 1848 and again in October of 1850 and August of 1852.
In addition, see Church Letter of dismission for Davy Cook in 1829.
According to A History of the Flint River Baptist Association, 1824 - 1974 by Harold Elston Graham, Sr., Salem is listed in the Flint River Association Minutes as being in Fayette County in 1827; in Crawford County in 1828; in Spalding County in 1854; in Monroe County in 1861and in Henry County in 1874.
