Churches in the Family
Mercy Seat AME Church

Mercy Seat is the church of my paternal grandfather and his family, located in rural Copiah County, Mississippi. Grandpa Mike Durr and other members of the family are buried in the church cemetery.


The picture below is the remains of the old church, which was a wood frame building. I remember walking up those steps to attend Grandpa Mike's funeral when I was five years old.
