Laclede County Churches
The Pulaski County portion of the map shows several rural schools (which I listed in post a couple of years ago) but only one church, Fairview Church. I guess the Pulaski County folks were more concerned about education than religion. By the way, one of my great grandmothers is buried (in an unmarked grave) at the Fairview Church Cemetery.
The Laclede County portion of the map shows Mt. Pleasant Church, Crossroads Church, Mt. Salem Church, New Home Church, Cedar Bluff Church, Mt. Carney Church, and Porter Chapel. In fairness to Pulaski County, I should point out that Laclede also had several more schools than churches. So, that was probably just a general trend in earlier days. I suppose schools were closer together than churches because the thinking was that kids shouldn't have to walk very far to get to school but entire families were capable of making a longer trek to church.
I know even less about these churches than I do about the ones in Greene County; so if anyone has knowledge of any of these churches (e.g. whether they are still going) I would enjoy hearing from you.
