My Great Grandfather, William J. Grimmett pastored Upland Baptist Church in 1905, and was the founder, I believe. He also pastored at Fairview Baptist Church, and Elk Knob Baptist Church.
My Grandmother was Edna Grimmett who married Wilbur Clayton Rice or *Bud Rice*. She told me stories of how her father was a circuit riding preacher, and she grew up on Elk Knob in Summers County. I went with her to see the cabin she lived in, the old church, and Elk Knob cemetery.
Does anyone out there know any Grimmett's, Rice's, or Buckland's and Boone's???
My great-great-grandfather was G. Floyd Boone and great-great-grandmother was his wife Clara Snyder "Snide" Rice whose brother was Charles Rice (his 1st and 1nd wives were Bucklands).

My Great Grandfather was General Floyd Boone. He is buried at Elk Knob. His wife, Clara Snyder Rice Boone, I believe is buried in Talcott cemetery. I have not found her yet, but just realized I was looking for her in Elk Knob and she isn't there. My grandmother was Effie Grimmett. I own the land that the Judson Freewill Baptist Church sits on, but I live in Oklahoma. I've been trying to find information on the church to see if it is still functioning, but no luck yet. I was told it shut down some years ago. I've been through the Elk Knob cemetery and have many pictures of the stones, etc.

Snyde Rice Boone after passing from injuries inflicted by her cow was buried at the Talcott Cemetery...any stone if she ever had one... is gone. Floyd and Snyde's grandchildren Nelsie Boone Roberts Robinson, Alpha Boone Meadows Hoke and Mary Elizabeth Boone Dawson are buried near Floyd at Elk Knob.

I remember the Upland Baptist Church from the years I lived in Hinton. Do they still have services there?
