Submitted in 2001by Edith Reynolds: From Freda Baker, Earl Reynolds's cousin, came the following excerpt from a history put out in Tioga, Texas this year about the Methodist Church. "The Tioga United Methodist Church was organized on the John F. Rogers farm, 2 miles east of Tioga at a location southeast of the present fm 121 and a small creek known as Martin's Branch. It was organized in 1887 with a Rev. Allen as first pastor. There was already a one room log school building called Shiloh at or near the location which was begun before the Civil War. Also, a
Baptist church had been erected nearby, a one-room frame bldg. This church also took the name of Shiloh. When the group of people who desired a Methodist church centered its organization here, it became known as Shiloh Methodist. It isn't known whether this organization erected a church bldg. or used the Shiloh school bldg. as its meeting place. After the town of Tioga was established, this institution, in 1893, purchased a lot at the present location. Some of the members were Mollie Rogers, Nannie Rogers, Mrs. John Rogers, Mrs. McElroy and Maggie McElroy. One member of special record was Olan R. Vanzandt who served in the Texas House of Representatives and the Texas Senate. This church has been in continuous operation since its founding. "Ed Wallace Reynolds and Chris Allen Reynolds are the only living members of this church with ancestors associated with the first church. They are great-great-great grandsons of John Rogers." Freda Reynolds Baker,
who sent me this information, and her husband, Harlan Baker, live on some land that John Franklin Reynolds homesteaded. Last year they hosted a reunion of Earl's immediate cousins on the home place.
