(Pasted on the page after the Death records is a newspaper obit for Mrs. Vada Burch Lee) FUNERAL IS HELD FOR PROMINENT MONROE WOMAN Services Conducted At Speed Home; Burial In City Cemetery
The funeral of Mrs. Vada Burch Lee, 80, widow of John Martin Lee, member of a distinguished southern family and prominent for many years in Monroe, who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. H. R. Speed, 110 Pine street, early Sunday, (written in ink in the margin: March 8, 1936), was held at the residence Monday at 3 p.m. Rev. L. T. Hastings, pastor of the First Baptist church, officiated. Internment was made in the old city cemetery.

Mrs. Lee, despite her advanced age, had been active up to last Thursday, when she was suddenly stricken with paralysis. Mrs. Lee was the widow of John Martin Lee, who, at the time of his death in 1908 was general land agent of the Southern Pacific railroad. Born in Georgia The family of Mrs. Lee was prominent in the War Between the States. It was of Georgia origin. She was born in Lagrange, Ga., May 8, 1855, the daughter of Dr. Richard Burch and Letitia Sale Burch. Doctor Burch was cavalry officer in the Confederate army and after the war he came to Louisiana, expecting to escape the turmoil attending the reconstruction period. Instead, he found the situation in this state more tumultuous than in Georgia. He located at Farmerville, then a center of the cotton shipping industry, and he became prominent in north Louisiana as a physician. The year after he came to this state, his daughter, Vada, married John Martin Lee on Nov 19, 1872 at the age of 17. It was then the post-war period of railroad expansion in the south, and Mr. Lee, member of a leading family of the state, became identified with the land department of the Southern Pacific, with headquarters in New Orleans. He continued in that position until his death in 1908 when Mrs. Lee removed to Monroe to reside.

Mrs. Lee was a woman noted for her wide intellectual attainments and devoted herself to the cultural things of life. She was deeply interested in civic beautification and gave much time to civic and charitable efforts. She also was an outstanding member of the First Baptist church.

Flowers Her Hobby Flowers with Mrs. Lee were a great hobby and she spent many hours daily with her favorite plants in the garden of her daughter, which is one of the most beautiful in the city.

One son, Capt. Thompson Wood Lee, a veteran of the Spanish-American war, died Sept 12, 1898, and the United States War Veterans' post here bears his name.

Three children of Mrs. Lee survive. They are Mrs. H. R. Speed and Mrs. J. R. Wooten, both of Monroe, and William Burch Lee of Shreveport. Surviving grandchildren are Mrs. T. O. Bancroft, Mrs. E. T. Lamkin, John Lee Wooten and Mrs. Elmer Slagle, all of Monroe; William Burch Lee, Jr., Felix Drake Lee and Elizabeth Lee, all of Shreveport, and Mrs. Melville C. Vaughan of Lawrenceville, Ill, Eleven great-grandchildren also survive. The pallbearers were: William Burch Lee, Jr., and Felix Drake Lee of Shreveport and John Lee Wooten of Monroe, Mrs. Lee's grandsons; T.O. Bancroft, Elmer Slagle and E. T. Lamkin of Monroe, her grandsons-in-law; and A.D. Turnage of Farmerville and Robert C. Webb of Delta Point, her nephews by marriage. (end of newpaper obit)

( Hand written, besides the above newspaper obit, is the below statement written by May Burch Lee Wooten, great grand daughter of Martin Batte Lee) "(Today July 2d, 1936 as I place this newspaper clipping in this book I shall "Hand down" to my grandchildren as it was given to me by my grandfather John Martin Lee Sr. I ponder which of them will treasure this book as I have because it was bought by my great grandfather Martin Batte Lee who was born in Virginia 1798. May Burch Lee Wooten)"

"Martin Batte Lee as remembered by his grand daughter-in-law Vada B. Lee - was a tall slender man with kind brown eyes, reserved, gentle dignified- a deacon in the Baptist Church- He had only one son John Martin Lee Sr. John M to remember as a bright and shinning star in the home where I spent many happy hours - Because I was interested in all he had to say of his Lee family and because I had the same initials this book came to me.

Liberty Hill Primitaive Baptist Church, Union, Louisiana, submitted by: Tim Hudson, edited by Barbara J. Frost

Records of Liberty Hill Primitive Baptist Church, Union Parish Louisiana

Location: Liberty Hill Church adjoins the Taylor/Liberty Hill Cemetery, located near Bayou de'Loutre, seven miles northeast of Farmerville off Louisiana Highway 33 from Farmerville to Marion, in the northwest quarter of Section 12, Township 21 North, Range 1 East.

What are Primitive Baptists?
In the early 1800s, an issue developed among the Baptist denomination concerning “missions” and benevolent organizations - should the churches support them or not? Baptist pioneers from the Carolinas and Georgia brought this matter into Alabama, neither group had patience with the other's views. Some churches displayed openly anti- or pro-mission, others attempted to evade the issue. The anti-mission Baptists began to split from the missionaries during the 1830s, and became known as Old-School, Hardshell, New Tests, or more formally, Primitive Baptists. Many Alabama Baptist churches with anti-mission beliefs withdrew from the associations to which they belonged and formed new Primitive Baptist Associations. Further issues developed, and before long there were significant doctrinal differences between the Missionary (later Southern) Baptists and the Primitive Baptists.

Background on Liberty Hill Church:
Liberty Hill Primitive Baptist Church, originally called Pleasant Hill Baptist Church,formed soon after Colonel Matthew Wood and his son-in-law, John Taylor, arrived in eastern Union Parish Louisiana from Lowndes County Alabama in early February 1837. The Taylors belonged to an anti-missionary Baptists in Butler County Alabama, and apparently John Taylor helped establish a hardshell Baptist Church near his home some six or seven miles east of what is now Farmerville. In the latter 1840s, Pleasant Hill Church purchased land from Henry P. Anderson. The church's new property adjoined John Taylor's plantation, and the church soon erected a building next to Taylor's family graveyard. This community graveyard is one of the oldest in Union Parish and is known as the Taylor/Liberty Hill Cemetery.

In the early 1840s, many of Taylor's siblings joined him in eastern Union Parish, and most of them are believed to become members at Liberty Hill Church. In particular, Taylor's older brother, Baptist preacher Elder James Taylor, may have served the church as paster prior to his death in 1852.

We do know that by the 1890s, Liberty Hill Church had joined the South Ouachita Primitive Baptist Association, an organization that included churches in north Louisiana and southern Arkansas.

In the latter 1930s as Union Parish geared up for its centennial celebration, many of the older residents were interviewed for the centennial issue of the Farmerville "Gazette". An article claims that Liberty Hill Church had existed prior to 1830. I seriously doubt this claim. ... no record of any settlers in the Bayou d'Loutre region in which Liberty Hill is located prior to 1836. There is not even a record of any Baptist Churches in original Ouachita Parish prior to the latter 1820s, just a few years after the earliest recorded Baptist sermon was preached there in 1819 or 1820. ...evidence points to Liberty Hill Church's formation as occurring about 1837...

Destruction of the Church & Associational Minutes:
Numerous members of my family have had close associations with Liberty Hill Church since those early years. In particular, my relatives Henry B. T. Goyne and his wife Mary Ann Murray Goyne joined the church in the 1870s. Their daughter Susannah J. Goyne and son-in-law John Thomas Hudson apparently joined in the 1880s, and Hudson served as church clerk during the 1890s and early 1900s. Most of John and Susan's family belonged to the church, including their eldest son Charles Henry Hudson (1873-1959). Seven of Charlie Hudson's eight children belonged to Liberty Hill, and his grandson Woodrow W. Hudson, Jr. (my father) has served as pastor of the church since 1961.

During the 1930s and early 1940s, my great-uncle Charles Henry Hudson,Jr. (called "June" or "Bud" by the family) served Liberty Hill Church as church clerk, and he also served as the clerk of the South Ouachita Association in the early 1940s. His wife Vivian Love had died followingthe birth of their only child in 1938, and he had moved back in with his parents. Thus, Uncle Bud had both the church and the association minutes at the home of his parents, Charlie and Docia Ward Hudson, during this period. Tragically, the Hudson home burned in 1945, destroying all its contents, including the minutes.

For some unknown reason, the book recording the church minutes from the period 1870 - 1877 were in someone else's possession in 1945, as they survived the 1945 fire that destroyed the majority of the minutes.


A Few 1870s Members of Liberty Hill Primitive Baptist Church, that includes Martin Batte Lee:

The minutes abstracted reveal the names of only a few members of the church in during the 1870s. Unfortunately, the majority of the membership, especially female members, were rarely mentioned in the minutes other than when they joined or requested dismissal. The few names below constitute only a fraction of those who belonged to the church during this time. Between 1890 and 1920, the church had between 30 and 40 members.

A few of the people mentioned in the surviving minutes as members of Liberty Hill Primitive Baptist Church during the 1870s:
Elder Henry Archer - pastor of the church in the 1870s
J. H. Patterson - clerk of the church in the 1870s
Martin Batte Lee
Enoch Richard Albritton
Mr. Osburn (listed in the minutes as "colored")
Riley Agerton
Henry B. T. Goyne
J. L. Taylor
Catherine Taylor Rabun
Sarah Taylor
..., many others.

Records from later years prove that many Pattersons, Taylors, Albrittons, Scarboroughs, and Hudsons also belonged during this time period.

The Surviving Minutes:
As standard for Baptist churches, Liberty Hill Church in the 1870s held services one weekend per month, with preaching on both Saturday and Sunday. After preaching on Saturday, the church held conference, presided over by a moderator, ordinarily the preacher.

The standard format of the minutes is:
"After worship the Church went in conference.
1. Invited visited Brethren and Sisters to seat with us.
2. Open the doors of the church for the reception of members.
3. Inquired for the health of the church and peace.
4. Inquired for reference.
5. Called for misc. business.
Done by the order of the church in conference. Elder H. Archer, Mod., J. H. Patterson, Clk."

The minutes begin with the conference held on Saturday, 26 February 1870, and run through the conference held on Saturday, 23 June 1877 (with a few omissions). Throughout this period, Elder Henry Archer served Liberty Hill Church as pastor, and J. H. Patterson as church clerk, and as such their names are recorded each month.

Abstracts of the Liberty Hill Church Minutes, 1870 - 1877 that include Martin B. Lee:

21 May 1870
"5. Misc. Business. Move and second the church appoint delegates to the district meeting to be held at New Hope Church, Louisiana - which will convene Friday before the Second Sunday in July. Delegated Brethren M. B. Lee, Bro. J. H. Patterson."

29 Aug 1870
"5. Misc. business - By move and second, the church went into the choice of delegates to the Association, and chose Brethren M. B. Lee, H. Archer, J. H. Patterson, and M. Armstrong in case of absence.

Done by order of the church in conference. Elder R. Roler, Mod. J. H. Patterson, Clk."

24 June 1871
"4. Inquired for reference. And by motion and second, the church went into the choice of her delegates to the District meeting to be held with Good Hope Church commencing on Friday before the first Sunday in August. She chose Elder H. Archer, M. B. Lee, J. H. Patterson, and J. L. Tugwell in case of absence."

22 July 1871
"5. Inquired for misc. business. By motion and second, the church took up the case of Bro. Osburn in relative to his preaching. The Church has silenced him from preaching."

29 Aug 1871
"5. Called for misc. business. By motion and second the church appointed a committee of three to cite Bro. Osburn to appearance before the church - The committee M. B. Lee, J. H. Patterson, J. M. Armestrong."

23 Sept 1871
"4. Reference. There being a letter to the Association, the letter was read and adopted. The committee reported and Bro. Osburn (colored) is presence. By motion the church took up the case of Bro. Osburn for doctrine, for cursing, and whoremonger. By motion and second the church took the vote on Bro. Osburn's case. The church declared nonfellowship for him for whoremonger, for doctrine, and for cursing.

24 May 1873
"5. Inquired for misc. business. By motion and second the church requested the rules of decorum be read at our next conference. By motion and second the church went into the choice of her delegates to the District meeting which terminated in the choice of Elder H. Archer, M. B. Lee, F. M. Armstrong, and J. H. Patterson, alternate."

29 Aug 1873
"5. Inquired for misc. business. By motion and second, the church went into the choice of her delegates to the Association and determined in the choice of Brethren M. B. Lee, H. Archer, F. M. Armstrong, and J. H. Patterson, alternate.

21 Aug 1875
"2. Opened the doors of the church for the reception of members. By motion and second the church received Sister Mary Hester (Hicks?) by an experience of Grace...

25 Dec 1875
The format of the minutes during this conference was different, probably due to the absence of Elder Henry Archer. The moderator for this conference was Martin Batte Lee, who was then nearly seventy-eight years old:

"After worship the church met in conference.
1. Invited visiting Brethren to seats.
2. Inquired for peace and fellowship including acknowledgments.
3. Give opportunity for reception of members.
4. Call for reference.
5. Misc. Business.
M. B. Lee, Md. and J. H. Patterson, clerk."

21 May 1876
"5. Inquired for misc. business. By motion and second the church went into the choice of her delegates to the District meeting which terminated in the choice of H. Archer, M. B. Lee, J. H. Patterson, and F. M. Armstrong and alternate - J. L. Taylor."

This concludes the pre-1945 extant minutes of Liberty Hill Primitive Baptist Church.
