IN MEMORY OF REV. T.C. GREGORY

b. 10-17-1912 d. 6-15-1993

(Continued from other side)

Rev. Gregory grew up in the Greenfield community and served as pastor for the church from 1951 to 1990. We credit him with preserving the history and historic church site. His extensive research and publication enables this history to live on for future generations to appreciate. His love and devotion to this site made him synonymous with Greenfield Church.
