Walnut Springs Church Auxiliary
Transcribed from the Original by Monty R. Loving, 2005

The following is a record of the Walnut Springs Church Auxiliary when it was reorganized in 1895. The original is in the current ownership of Mrs. Annie Sue Stickley Breeden. Since the writing was over 100 years old, and somewhat hard to read, I apologize for any misspellings, etc.

Motto: The Love of Christ Constraineth Us.
