Bethel Baptist Church

Founded in 1810

Transcribed by Patti - Azzreillea@wmconnect.com

The Bethel Baptist Church was founded in 1810.  The first nine members were:
John Parmley and his wife, Phillip Smith and his wife, Roland Burnett, Johnathan Blevins, John Smith, Easther Koger, Stephan Vaughn. The next day sister Nancy Burnett joined by letter.

 On September 16, 1810, the church met and chose Brother John Smith as her first pastor and brother Phillip Smith, his brother, as deacon and clerk. John was better known as " Racoon John Smith", a man of illustrious fame. He held the pastor's position at least two different times. Later, though, after moving away, he was influenced by the teachings of Alexander Campbell. He was then founded the First Christian Church of Monticello, as well as several others.

This is a list of church members extracted from the History of the Bethel Baptist Church and it's minutes.  Notice that the Church records didn't show the date the members joined until at least 1831.  Some death dates are included in these minutes to the right of the person's name (only if it states that is it the death date.) 
Thank you Patti for sharing this with us. - Marilyn Fisher, CC
