Special Thanks to Mark
Price for bringing this photo to us. He tells us that it was taken in
the early 1950s and these men are the former Pastors of Liberty Hill
Baptist Church. L to r: Rev. R. J. Thackston (1928-1930), Rev. J. W.
Rawls (1931-1936), Rev. R. E. Chambers (1944-1946), Rev. William “Bill”
Tarlton (1948-1952), Rev. Thomas Howard Howell, Sr. (1955-1989).
Brenda Craig from
McDonough also tells "This photo is of former pastors of the Liberty
Hill Baptist Church in Hampton, Georgia and was probably taken in the
mid 1950's. (Left to Right) Rev. R. J. Thaxton (pastor from 1928-1930),
Rev J. W. Rawls (pastor from 1931-1936), I believe this is Rev. R. E.
Chambers (pastor from 1944-1946), Rev. William N. "Bill" Tarleton
(pastor from 1948-1952), and Rev. Thomas Howard Howell, Sr. (pastor from
1955-1989). I attended this church from birth (1947) until I married in
1970, and Rev. Tarleton was my first pastor. My parents were very active
in this church their entire married life, until their respective deaths
in 2003 and 2007, and my sister and her family still attends and are
very active in Liberty Hill Baptist Church today."
