Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, Prince George, VA

Hello All
The following are exerpts taken from the 139th church anniversay program of the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, located in Prince George VA.

Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, Prince George, VA was organized in the autumn of 1869 by Reverend Gaines, who was serving as the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Petersburg, VA. With a membership of 25 people, Brother Pompey Penister was in charge.

In 1879, with a membership of 45, the church called Elder J.J. Jones to serve as pastor.

On March 13, 1889, following the building of a new church, Brother John Brewe presented a cornerstone that was laid by the Pocahontas Lodge No. 7 of the Free and Accepted Ancient Masons.
Here are some of the additional men who pastored the church:
Rev. Wiggins from 1900 - 1919
Rev. J.D. Whitfield from 1919 - 1925
Rev. O.B. Allen from 1925 - 1927
Rev. Peter Wilkins from 1927 - 1929
Rev. E.E. Hicks from 1929 - 1938
Rev. L.C. Johnson from 1938 - 1969

I have additional info on this church if anyone is interested.
Peace and Blessings.
