Mount Zion Christian Church, Southampton Twp.

History: Mount Zion Christian church was organized by Elder Lewis Comer, about 1825. The charter members are deceased, and the old records lost. Comer was succeeded in the pastorate by Elders Long, Sells, Lewis, Ramsey, Proctor, Miller and Cooper, Barney and Logue. Rev. B. A. Cooper is the present pastor. It now has a good house of worship and a respectable membership (in 1884). The church is quite prosperous.

In connection with the pastors above named, this church has enjoyed, transiently, the labors of Elders Seever, Robinson, Pugh, Smith, Pennell, McDaniel, Browning and Garland.
