The Old Log Church: Memories of the sweet, sweet sound of Gospel Music
"Amazing how many crystal-clear memories are revisited
By Charlotte Burton Scott
Thank you for showing photos of the old Log Church and Sulphur Creek. The photos instantly transported me back in time about three decades to when most cars on Burton Ridge were washed by hand in the shallow part of Sulphur Creek.
And I remember we always stopped at the store on the way to Sulphur Creek, either Elzie Burton's store or Mr. Pete McQueary's store to buy a bar of Ivory soap to take with us (because it floated in the creek) and some lunch--- usually pickled bologna (which we called pickled dog), crackers, and a moon pie.
Also, I remember the many water baptisms in that creek as well as the sweet, sweet sound of gospel songs sung by the church faithful travelling through the summer air (usually "Shall We Gather at the River?").
As a child, I remember the sound of gospel music in Mr. Elzie's store as well because there was an upright piano at the back of the store where Mr. Elzie's daughter, Elaine, would practice the songs she would later play at Bearwallow Church (back when it was an E.U.B. church--before it was Methodist) and where she taught me to play the notes with my right hand and the chords with my left..
Amazing how many crystal-clear memories are revisited!.
I seem to remember that area being called the""Mouth of Butler.".
Does anyone know what Mouth of Butler referred to?.
