Early Members
Boyd’s Chapel
United Methodist Church
(Originally Mount Pleasant Methodist Church)
Limestone County,Alabama



























Mount Pleasant Methodist Church was a log building which originally stood in the vicinity of theMt. Pleasant Cemetery atArdmore.  After the building was destroyed by fire, the congregation re-built at the present site, sometime after 1891, and the church became known as Boyd’s Chapel.  Boyd’sChapel United Methodist Church is still an active congregation today. 

This list of members ofMount Pleasant Methodist Church / Boyd’s Chapel is transcribed from early records of the church, Book 1 and Book 2.  Although few dates appear in the record books, it seems that Book 1 covers the approximate period 1891-1909, and Book 2 covers events during 1912-1924.  The books record several events, including: 

a.  To Whom Married

b.  When and how received into membership (Baptism, Vows, Certificate)

c.  By whom received

d.  When and how removed from membership roll

e.  Date of death

This transcription is intended primarily for genealogical purposes, and therefore shows only the names of the church members, and the person to whom they were married. 


The records include the names of many circuit-rider clergymen who served theMount  Pleasant / Boyd’sChapel Methodist Church.  They are listed below (years when some served as pastor are shown in parentheses):

This list was transcribed by Jerry Thomas Johnson in loving memory of his grand-parents, Jerry Lee and Mary Ella (Hardin) Johnson, who were members of Boyd’s Chapel.  I have corrected spelling only when I am certain that the names were misspelled (for example, I corrected Wails toWales, and Eavs to Eaves).  Thanks to Richard Hasting, who provided me with a copy of the printed records.  The church members cited in the records are as follows:
