LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
I discovered that the Pates had listed two early Baptist congregations (what they called ‘colored’ churches) at the end of the section listing the A.M.E. churches instead of putting them with all the other Baptist churches. These were: Shiloh Baptist Church, Altamont, 1888; and First Baptist Church, Altamont, no organization date given.
The Pentecostal movement is not mentioned in the Pates’ book, but I will be writing about that next week, via information from another source.
