Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church

The church is located on Barlow Road in rural Copiah County, Mississippi. It was the church home of my paternal grandmother when she was a young girl. Buried in the church cemetery are members of Grandma Gertrude Overton's kin.

  1. I always intrigued by small rural churches like this one--and wish that I knew more about their history.

    1. I find researching church histories intriguing. Spend most of my time researching people, hoping to spend more time on land and institutions research.

  2. It reminds me of the Church on St. Johns Road, St. John Baptist church. It burned down right before we left and now there is a more modern church.
