Correction: Communities to hold reunion on Aug. 13 in Eva

On Aug. 13 beginning at 9:30 a.m. the annual reunion of the Rock Creek, Lawrence and Greasy Cove communities will meet at Harmony Primitive Baptist Church on Lawrence Cove Road near Eva.

This year there will be a special program rededicating the old cemetery which is adjacent to the church building. The old cemetery, that began in the mid 1800s, is mainly the resting place of the Allison and Johnson families, although other people who are unknown are also buried there. It is a hallowed place where sandstones and touchstones tell the history of an era long gone.

In addition to the rededication there will be lunch and fellowship in the afternoon.

For additional information, call Marigurette Alexander at 256-796-6064.
