Old Baptist Church at Perkins, MO
Contributed by:  Diane Provost
This picture was taken in the 1920's and is labeled, "Old Baptist Church at Perkins, MO."  My grandparents Joseph Ware and Fannie Forrester, and my great-grandparents Wm. N. Forrester and Martha Lucinda Dunaway attended this church. My gr-grandmother, Martha Lucinda Dunaway Forrester's obit. mentions this church. It says "Last rites were at the Perkins Baptist Church, conducted by Rev. C. E. Warren of Oran and burial was in Friend cemetery, with the Earl J. Smith Funeral Home in church."

I learned of the GNIS link through Lynn Ainsworth who also submitted the following information:
"A trick I learned the hard way. When a cemetery is associated with a church, the GNIS will many times not find it. If you search for the church name you will find the location of the cemetery, ie. Silent Hill Church will give you the cemetery location. This has helped us locate cemeteries several times. Lynn Ainsworth"
