Cross Baptist Church, near Pinckneyville, Perry County, Illinois

Many of our Logans and affiliated families attended Cross Church in Perry County, Illinois. Several are buried in Brown Cemetery, close to the former church site.

Cross Baptist Church was torn down, which is unfortunate, but perhaps understandable without a viable adaptive re-use. What is unconscionable is that all the church records were destroyed. This would have been a rich trove of Logan (and many other families’), Baptist, Cross Church, and Perry County history. This archival destruction has to stop! If there were sensitive items in the church minutes, they could have been gently edited out before being shared. Shameful and inexcusable to just destroy them.
