Church where Rev. G. W. Perryman was saved

2017-03-13 - Russell County, KY between Montpelier & Esto - Photo by Ed Waggener, .
It's now Old Liberty Community Church, but as best we can determine. "Old Liberty Baptist Church was located near modern day Hwy 92 between Montpelier to the west and Hales Highway / Hwy 379 to the east, hard by the banks of Liberty Creek, a branch of Runnels Creek. Across the fields and the creek, the church house was a third of a mile or less from the Perryman home place." A reader notes: "Rev. Perryman never pastored the United Baptist, later known as (Old) Liberty Church. That was church of his boyhood and it was there he professed his faith and a few years later he was ordained there, but the only times he spoke at United/Liberty -- which he always considered his home church -- was his nearly annual trips back to Russell County until his mother passed in 1893, and after that, more infrequently but still he came back, particularly around 4th of July, whenever he could. (Until around 1898, he was in the northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area; after that, he pastored, in order, at Middlesboro, Paducah, Knoxville, and Norfolk before returning to Kentucky to shepherd Central Baptist in Winchester for what proved to be the last year of his life.)"
