A Few 1870s Members of Liberty Hill Primitive Baptist Church, that includes Martin Batte Lee:
The minutes abstracted reveal the names of only a few members of the church in during the 1870s. Unfortunately, the majority of the membership, especially female members, were rarely mentioned in the minutes other than when they joined or requested dismissal. The few names below constitute only a fraction of those who belonged to the church during this time. Between 1890 and 1920, the church had between 30 and 40 members.
A few of the people mentioned in the surviving minutes as members of Liberty Hill Primitive Baptist Church during the 1870s:
Elder Henry Archer - pastor of the church in the 1870s
J. H. Patterson - clerk of the church in the 1870s
Martin Batte Lee
Enoch Richard Albritton
Mr. Osburn (listed in the minutes as "colored")
Henry B. T. Goyne
J. L. Taylor
Catherine Taylor Rabun
..., many others.
Records from later years prove that many Pattersons, Taylors, Albrittons, Scarboroughs, and Hudsons also belonged during this time period.
The Surviving Minutes:
As standard for Baptist churches, Liberty Hill Church in the 1870s held services one weekend per month, with preaching on both Saturday and Sunday. After preaching on Saturday, the church held conference, presided over by a moderator, ordinarily the preacher.
