Union Church

 

This was a community church built by donations of many and donated labor.  Any denomination could hold services here.  The Christians are often called Campbellites and the Southern Methodist were the two that I [Myrtle (Smith) Vandersall] remember having church regularly.  At Christmas time they usually had a tree and program.  Many, many funerals were held here.  It is now gone. 

 

(The above was taken from a letter from Myrtle (Smith) Vandersall to Marjorie (Keller) Walkington on 25 July 1977)
