Causby, beside having a cool name, at least I think so, is our
new Aldersonian reporter. Please welcome
Causby to the Aldersonian. I appreciate her doing this, and I think
we all look forward to what she will bring.
This is an old
picture of Hickory Grove Church on Bennett Mountain, off Blue
Sulphur Springs. This picture was graciously shared by Becky Ann
Alderson-Ornold from her Great-Grandmother, Laura Jane Suttle-Bennett's
Becky's Grandfathers, (Marshall, Bennett, Walkup & Suttle) helped
to build the church. As we understand it was torn down in the 80's.
Some of the people who worshipped there were Thompsons & Bryants.
The Bennetts, & Suttles/Settles were mostly Baptist; the Walkups &
McClungs were mostly Methodist. From looking at the picture, Ward
Parker believes it was at the end of the farm, now owned by John &
Linda Bennett. It's right past the old John Myles property, right
where the Mt. View Subdivision starts.
We would welcome any additions or corrections to the history of this
Respectfully, Aldersonian Reporter: Causby Parker.
