War Memorial Tablet

The massive bronze war memorial tablet in the foyer of the church deserves its own heading because it contains the names of 59 veterans, mostly from the Civil War, who were associated with Mary S. Brown Church. Some, but not all, are buried in Turner Cemetery. The TC/MSBA Committee feels it is important that these men should never be forgotten. We are in the process of researching military records and other sources to discover more about them.
