Wilson, O.Z. Brief History of First Baptist Church (Evant)
Thanks to all the people who made the Hamilton County Baptist History section possible. This was started as a class project. I compiled & wrote the first version of the History of Hamilton Baptist. Later additions, corrections, & editing were done by Elreeta Crain Weathers. Much thanks to Brian Durfee & Sue Ellen Pipes for advice on site layout & HTML help. Thanks to everyone who has offered suggestions & corrections. Corrections will be made as soon as possible.
Thanks to the following for sharing stories, church histories, church records, & other information:
HTML: The site was first programed using MacroMedia Backstage Designer & Home Site. Editing & recent changes have been down by hand. Thanks to Brian Durfee for site evaluation & help with html code.
Graphics: The divider is from Internet Wizzard. Can't remember where I found the Little New gif. All logos on the links pages are from the respective sites. The one exception is the logo used for Hardin-Simmons University. I modified a scanned copy of the offical HSU seal using Photo Darkroom by Seattle Filmworks. You're probably wondering why I have a copy of the H-SU seal lying around. Well actually I have several copies on things like my diploma, ring, shirts, & other things.
