OLD EBENEZER CHURCH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
1786-1986
to be held June 14-15, 1986

The church began in 1786 when two Methodist Circuit Riders (Hull and Mastin) started 26 meeting houses between Cheraw and Georgetown, most under brush arbors. Later, meetings were held in homes, then in a log cabin church, and in 1855 a church was built near the present site of Old Ebenezer in Marion County, SC.

A woods fire destroyed that building in 1855 and the present building was built in 1856. Services were discontinued in 1966. In 1968, the Ebenezer Memorial and Historical Association was formed.

Families known to have attended Ebenezer during the 1800's were:
ALLEN, ALTMAN, BAILEY, BASS, BERRY, BRADY, BREEDON, BROWN, BRYANT, BULLOCK, CAMPBELL, COLEMAN, COLLINS, DEW, DILLON, ELLERBE, FINKLEA, FORE, GODBOLD, HARRELSON, HOLIDAY, HORTON, JERNIGAN, JOHNSON, JONES, LAMB, LANE, LEE, McINTYRE, McLELLAN, MILES, MITCHELL, MOODY, MOORE, PLATT, POPE, PORTER, QUINN, ROGERS, SANDERSON, SMITH, STACKHOUSE, STEWARD, TAYLOR, TURBEVILLE, WATSON, and WELCH.
