UNION PRIMITIVE BAPTIST
The Union Primitive Baptist Church
in Paulding Counry, GA was constituted 4 September 1868 with nine Charter
Members on a plot of ground that was donated by William Hogue. One deed
reads: "William J. Hogue, 3 August 1870, five acres on Land Lot Number
1066 in Paulding County, to the Deacons and their successors in office
of the Primitive Baptist Church of Christ at Union, holding to the doctrine
of Election Predestination and final Preservation of the Saints. If Church
ceases to be such, land is to revert back to William Hogue, or his representatives."
Ordained Ministers and Deacons
of the New Hope (Primitive) Baptist Association assisted in the constitution
of the Church. Elder Burrell Camp was elected Pastor and Zebulon Little
was elected Clerk for the coming year. The Church remained in the New Hope
Baptist Association for several years. It is now a member of the Euharlee
Primitive Baptist Association.
Apparently the grounds for the
cemetery were opened immediately after its organization. There are a number
of old graves that were never marked. Cement blocks were set up in the
older part of the cemetery to mark rows of old graves. The earliest marked
grave shows 1874.
