Grimes Baptisms

Grimes County Baptisms, Martin's Prairie Baptist Church
1896 photo of baptisms, congregation of Martin's Prairie Baptist church. At that time, baptisms took place in Panther Creek. Still, this photo has the look of the Navasota River, down where the highway crosses it, west of Carlos. Original is from a glass-plate negative, large format and highly detailed, with many faces recognizable under magnification.
