    Births, Deaths and Marriages
    in Choctaw Co, MS
    Births and Marriages recorded in Choctaw County, MS, by Charles Hudson DUDLEY from 1855-1861. The following names were extracted from a Weather Record Journal kept by C. H. DUDLEY. The Journal has been photographed by the National Weather Bureau in Ashville, NC. The owner of the book in 1973 was Mr. Downey PITTMAN of Ackerman, MS, a descendant of C. H. DUDLEY.
    The following names and dates were extracted originally by Louise PITTMAN DOLMAN (Mr. Downey PITTMAN’s sister), and used in her application for admission to the DAR. I have photocopies of the original journal, but some pages are torn and others difficult to read. I have tried to verify Mrs. DOLMAN’s extractions, and feel that she has listed the following as best she can and has left spellings as they were in the original journal. Since there are not a large number of names listed, I have not indexed them. They are left in their original chronological order as they appeared in the journal. Submitted by Lenore S.

    CCHGS Church of the Week Series: New Zion Baptist Church Weir-Salem

    By C.J. Johnson
    For the Choctaw Plaindealer

    New Zion Baptist Church is yet another of the older churches in the county. The minutes from its organization date through 1913 are on file at the Mississippi Baptist Historical Society in Clinton, Mississippi. Hazel Crenshaw Garrett transcribed the minutes from those early years for the church's 150th anniversary. The cover photograph of the church history pamphlet shows the second church structure, built in 1856 and later partially dismantled and moved from the woods to the present site in 1938. The first church was a log house, built by the spring. It is said the first two churches were never seated, assuming the seats were made of split logs with peg legs, without backs.

    The abstract of the church minutes states:

    "The Brethren and sisters in the vicinity of a new meeting house located in the southern part of Choctaw County and known by the name of New Zion having called upon seven Ministers of the gospel to meet them at said meeting on Saturday before the 2nd Lords day in December 1842. According by Elder Silas Dobbs met them the others failing to attend and the Brethren and sisters whose names are here unto written...They were announced by the said Elder Silas Dobbs to be a Baptist Church authorized to exercise all the privileges of the same constituted upon the abstract of faith."
    The first pastor was Elder Silas Dobbs. Charter members of the church included the family names of PINNIX, Tullos, Patterson, CLANTON, Wiltshire, Ward, Weeks, Rosamond, Smith, and Weatherall. Bro. Silas Dobbs was pastor from 1842 to 1849 followed by J. T. Fulks. Subsequent preachers included D. M. Sims (1854-1855, 1861-1862), Bro. Noris (1855-1857), Bro. Franklin (1857-1860), William Fancher (1860-1861), Bro. Wilson (1862-1864), Bro. Ward (1864-1865), Bro. Vanlandingham (1865-1869), Bro. Kitchens (1869-1872), Bro. N. Q. Adams (1872-1874), W. H.H. Fancher (1874-1877, 1878-1906)), and Bro. Fant (1877-1878).

    In 1843 GREEN PINNIX and Benjamin Rosamond were ordained as deacons. New Zion was admitted into the Louisville (Mississippi) Baptist Association that same year. In 1856, a committee of ten was appointed to select a place to build a church. The committee reported a suitable site about two hundred yards south of the old church and the new building was to be a frame building lighted by candles. During the 1850s, more members, both black and white, were added to the membership rolls.

    In 1871, the church sent off for Hymn books and agreed to make up $4 to buy a Bible for the church. A 1942 Choctaw Plaindealer article stated that this Bible was still in existence at that time and that one of the hymn books was in the custody of Mrs. Rowena Crick. The hymnal was only 4 ? inches by 2 ? inches by 2 inches in size, and contained the lyrics to a thousand songs.

    In 1888, a decision was made to repair the existing church building rather than construct a new church building. In 1888 there were 99 members; in 1939, the membership had increased to 114. In 1938, the minutes state that a meeting was held to determine whether to let the current church building stand or move to another place. The members voted 15 to 2 to move the church. The wooden church, originally built in 1856, was dismantled, moved, and reassembled at the current church location in April 1938. In 1967, the council met and voted to build a new brick church. Construction started in March and was completed in September.

    On October 18, 1992, New Zion celebrated its sesquicentennial with a service at the old cemetery. The message was presented by Bro. Ferrell Cork, followed by lunch and singing.

    At 1 a.m. on March 28, 1996, the Ackerman Fire Department received a call from the Choctaw County Sheriff's Department reporting New Zion Baptist Church was on fire. The church was a complete loss. Services were held in front of the burned out church the following Sunday. For the next two years, services were held in the parsonage which was empty at the time. On January 25, 1998, services were held in the new sanctuary of the church. The newly constructed church building was enlarged to include an activities building and fellowship area as well as several additional classrooms.

    The old cemetery associated with New Zion Church is in a remote location off White's Road, which was the site of the earliest church. According the Choctaw County Cemeteries book, the cemetery has been abandoned for many years.
