ca 1905. The two children in white dresses are a mystery. Their ages appear to match being young siblings of the boys, however the other children in the family does not match their ages. Maybe they are neices and nephews. Ages don't match grandchildren. Mary Caroline never had children.

The Waltersville Baptist Church started in the summer of 1933 with a tent revival sponsored by Bowmar Avenue Baptist Church, then pastored by Rev. J L. Boyd. A month later, a Sunday school was organized, first meeting in the Wadford home, then at Givens’ Machine Shop, later in a vacant house, and by the time attendance reached 100, a Mr. Ford made the old dance hall pavilion at Mont Springs available.

On June 24, 1934, the church was established with 16 members, nine by letter and seven by baptism. Meetings were held once a month, on the first Sunday afternoon, with Boyd as pastor.

The church was offered land by the Meachams, and a frame structure, 44 feet by 20 feet, was built. It stood near Toler’s Camp beside the road that was down the hill from old U. S. 61, which was built later. The building was eventually raised to the level of the highway and a basement and front porch were added.

Which Wadford was this?
