Re: [jacksongenealogy] Old Church Records
- Yes, there are some church records available on microfilm, which can be obtained through interlibrary loan. I found my 3rd great-grandfather, James M. Flanagin, listed as one of the Wills Creek elders in "Mud Creek Association (northeast Alabama and adjoining Tennessee and Georgia), Primitive Baptist, 1821-1930 / from Esther McCrory Chapter, Amarillo, Texas." Another source is "Early Baptists of Jackson County, Alabama Records, 1821-1921. 2 vols." You can also look at the marriage records. I found twelve marriage records where my 3rd great-grandfather is listed as Minister of the Gospel.

I have a 4th gr grandfather named John Williams who is listed in the
1850 Jackson County census as a Baptist minister. I'm curious if there
might be sources of old church records from Jackson County, AL? I
believe he lived north of the river, not far from present day
Stevenson. Any help would be appreciated!
