One thought on “Macedonia Primitive Baptist Church

  1. Shari G.

    My ancestors John Kee, and Owen and Rachel Kee were part of the founding members of this church. I believe John Kee passed while living in this area- likely shortly after the church was formed. Is anyone from this church still active on this blog?
