Peter's Creek is one of the ,ldest
churches in Pickens county. It is
located in one of the most I mautiful
spots in the north eastern part of
tiis county. A magnificent forest of
giant oaks are south and west of it.
On these days the soft rays of the
October sun shone against the brigh
redI -yellow and green leaves anld
made a lovely picture. To thet north
side of 'the church sleep many who
have gone on before. About the old
est grave is one Nations who servCd
in the Revolutionary war, and there
are many others. Some familia
names are the Loopers, Singletons
Hunts, Hughes, Williams, Fosters
and Alexanders, whose tombstone
stand as mighty sentinels reminding
us of good and sturdy people who
have gone on before. We believe
that inl the near future this part of
