WILLIAMS CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH - DAR MEMORIAL SERVICE 2014

At a Church nearly as old as the country itself, members of the Burkhalter Chapter, William Marsh Chapter and Sequoyah Chapter NSDAR gathered to honor and remember DAR Patriot Joel Walker 
and his family.
The original 1787 Williams Creek Church was built next to the creek on lower ground
with the cemetery.
