"The (Wayfare Primitive Baptist) Church was constituted in 1847, and the first annual meeting was held in September of that year. The members were: John Roberts, Sr., Edmund Mathis, Unity Mathis, Harvey Mizell, Rebecca Mizell, John T. Roberts, John Mathis, James Johnson, Simon A. Blackman, Azilpha Tomlinson, Harvey Matthews, Elizabeth Register and Rachel Howell. Because of the changes in County boundaries, this church, though never moved, has existed in three counties, first in Ware, then in Clinch and now in Echols."
Wayfare Primitive Baptist Church & Cemetery was always know as Cow Creek to the locals. Perhaps those Echols Countians who still hold their family reunions at this church will contact me with the information, so I can list it on the Reunion Page. This is an old established church, and I hope to give its history in more depth when I have time to go through more of the family data. This was my father's home church, and also where the Tomlinson's (and others) had their family reunions. The following data was personally gathered and submitted by "caring & sharing" descendants. I will be adding more to the list as I have time. If you note any errors, or would like to submit your ancestors, please E-Mail me. I would like to thank Diana and Bob Hunnicutt who recently spent a very hot day this July 2008 photographing over 200 more headstones.
