Thomas Minyard Monument

The Thomas Minyard monument is found in the old Hopewell Baptist Church cemetery in western Itawamba County. Hopewell Baptist Church, located north of the old Keyes Cemetery and east of the old antebellum post office of Woodlawn, was established during the early 1840's. Several old 19th Century roads intersect near the church and during the later 1800's this community and post office was known as Abney.

Bob,
I have a scan of an original letter from Joel White Rhyne to his family while he was at Port Hudson, LA, if you would like a copy to post.
