Notes From The Author
Christ Episcopal Church Revisited
is a project of the Samuel Bacot Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American
Revolution,Florence, South Carolina. My gratitude is extended to Mrs. Carolyn DeBerry,
Chapter Regent, for her steadfast support of this project and to the chapter members for
their encouragement as well. I wish to acknowledge: Mrs. Frances Johnson for her
assistance in recording and proofing data from the church registers; Mrs. Amelia Wallace
for lending me information on Christ Church; Mrs. Sarah Langston for her help with the
recording of tombstone information and proofreading; and Mrs. Sarah Montgomery and Mrs.
Mills Orr for their help with proofreading.
Many thanks, also, to Mrs. Nell Morris, Mr. Ferrell Prosser, Mr. Horace
Rudisill, Mrs. Frankie Dukes, Miss Laura McFadden, Mr. T. Ashby Gregg, Sr., Dr. Ernest L.
Helms, III, Mr. Edward P. Ashby, Jr., Ms. Elizabeth B. Coker, Mrs. Jessie M. Andersen, Mr.
G. Walker Duvall, Mrs. Wilmina Todd, Mr. John Orr, Mrs. Nickie Moose, Mr. Bacot Rogers and
Mr. Frank M. Rogers,IV.
It is my hope that the reprinting of Sketches on the History of
Christ Church,by Constance A. Gregg, will be of continued interest and assistance to
those tied to this lovely church by baptism, confirmation, marriage or death. Although I
am not a member of Christ Episcopal Church, I do appreciate and applaud the tremendous
efforts of those who have been involved with the life of this church, to the glory of God,
since its founding in 1859. Together,Miss Bessie A. Gregg and Mrs. Constance A. Gregg have
presented us with a rather informal and loving account of the inception and continued
growth of Christ Church.
The reprinting of Sketches on the History of Christ Church
indicates a change in the "Burials" section. In "Part Two" I have
included the birth dates and death dates as recorded from each cemetery marker.
Otherwise,this book has been reprinted as it was originally typed with some minor
editorial and typogaphical corrections. With the immeasurable support and assistance from
Mrs. Alice Bultman Beaty, I have brought forward to the present all baptisms, marriages
and burials. Also included are all confirmations since 1855. My deepest gratitude is
extended to Mrs. Beaty for her encouragement, guidance, wisdom and the many hours she has
spent working with me on this project. Her help has been invaluable. Finally, a map of the
cemetery is included in "Part Two" for the purpose of serving as a tombstone
As a member of the National Society Daughters of the American
Revolution, I have become increasingly interested in genealogy and history. It is with
love for God, family and country that I present Christ Episcopal Church Revisited.
I truly hope that this book will be of interest and assistance to those of you tracing
your family trees, and that it will be a loving reminder of your ancestors and a treasure
for your descendants.
