NEW HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH, #3
[I have added #1, #2, #3, etc. as a tool to
differentiate these churches. While they could have been the same church,
the apparent locations make them appear to be different churches.]
The third New Hope Baptist Church
was situated nine miles south Hamilton and east of Shive and
US 281. Formed before 1908, this church lasted until after 1911. Rev.
R. C. Pender of Bowie preached the ordination sermon for Walter
McKenzie in April, 19??.
Dan Wisell gave land (about 1908) for the

residence. New Hope Church was located on the north side of
