Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Bethlehem Church was established during the early 40's on Islington Plantation where I was born and my family lived until the early 50's. My family continued attending Bethlehem on the plantation after we moved to the city in 1954, Eventually after everyone moved from the plantation, the church was also moved to the city.
