Crockett Mills Christian Church History

Photo ca. 1903

Built in 1882 and dedicated by J. B. Inman, who served it faithfully for two years.

J. F. Robertson built the church and has always been a staunch supporter of it. It is ever ready to assist in all our missionary enterprises.

Photograph and text taken from Churches of Christ: A Historical, Biographical, and Pictorial History of Churches of Christ in the United States, Australasia, England and Canada by John T. Brown, M. A. Published by John P. Morton and Company Louisville, Kentucky, Copyright 1904.

John Thomas Brown was born one mile north of Alamo in 1869 (then Cageville, Gibson County.) Brown’s leather-bound, 683-page edition is considered the definitive work on the history of the Churches of Christ, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and the American Restoration Movement. The photograph and text above were taken from a copy of John T. Brown’s book that belonged to my great-grandfather, William Stephen Corbett.
