According to the historic marker, Bay Branch Primitive Baptist Church was organized on 22 April 1877. I don’t know if the present structure is contemporary to that date. Elder A. R. Strickland was the first pastor and charter members were: Martin E. Rogers; Sara Jane Rogers; William H. Bazemore; Hester A. C. Bazemore; and James J. Martin.

    I wonder if the Bazemores who were original members were related to Coach Bazemore in Valdosta in 60’s and 70’s.
