This church is located at 1105 Union
Street in Brunswick, Glynn, Georgia. According to an annual report, the church was
organized 27 January 1867 and was re-organized 15 May 1870. Their
church books record the membership of the church over the years and the
births, marriages, and deaths of the parishioners. There were four
books recording the activities of the church:
Vol. I Sessional Record Jany. 67-Apr. 86. Did not type rest of membership
records from pages 180-184 in this volume but got copies
Vol. II Sessional Records 15 April 1886-1896.
Vol. III Sessional Records April 1896-1910 this book has deaths, baptisms,
Vol. IV Sessional Records 7 May 1911-April 1934 has vitals, no deaths or
marriages recorded in this book.
In February of 2014 Mr. Joseph T.
McGoogan created a history of the First Presbyterian Church of Brunswick
using records found at the church and through member help. This
booklet not only had a well documented history of the church but also
includs photographs of many of the first founders and ministers.
With Mr. McGoogan's permission I
have recreated his booklet for the GlynnGen.com website; correcting
grammatical and spelling errors only and adding my personal notes in
Vol. 1 Sessional
The History of The
First Presbyterian Church of Brunswick Est. in 1867
