Nevils Creek Old Line Primitive Baptist Church, Bulloch County

Nevils Creek is the oldest church in Bulloch County and one of the oldest Primitive Baptist churches in Georgia. It was constituted in 1790. A single headstone is located beside the church: John Neville served in the 2nd South Carolina Regiment during the Revolutionary War. He may have been the founder of the congregation.

    This isn’t the original site. But, this church was ransacked by the northern wing of Sherman’s army. Pews, pulipits, and other items were said to be used as firewood by the boys in blue. My 3rd great grandfather, Jasper Wilson was an elder here. He was well liked and preached at many churches in the area. He also was a state representative for Bulloch county. His plantation was nearby and was said to have been ransacked by the Yankees.
