MIKE WATSON: Sunday notes from Adair County History
A few Sunday Notes from Adair County, many years ago...
By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian
"The Faithful Few - Last Sunday was a very disagreeable day, and but few people ventured out from their respected homes. Notwithstanding the fierce winds, and the steady down pour of chilly rain, Rev. J.C. Cook went to Zion and filled his regular appointment. We learn from Bro. Cook that the most attentive listeners to his discourse were Mr. Burton Yates and wife, Mr. Jo Willis, and Mr. Melvin Conover." 15 January 1908, Adair County News.
"Welcomed the Pastor - Pastor J.C. Cook preached his first sermon at Gradyville last Saturday afternoon. Mrs. Sallie B. Wilmore, President of the Ladies Missionary Society, welcomed the pastor, and Misses Nell Hindman and Maude Wilmore recited beautifully. Pastor Cook appreciated the welcome extended and in a few words expressed his thanks for the society and pledged his support. In the business meeting which followed the sermon, Mr. W.C. Yates was elected to the office of deacon. 29 January 1908. Compiled by Mike Watson
