Several Wingards are buried at the Pisgah Primitve Baptist Church Cemetery in south Montgomery County, Alabama. One Primitive Baptist distinctive is the practice of footwashing when communion is observed.

Pisgah Primitive Baptist Church was constituted in 1842, and its beautiful meeting house was built in 1931. I have never been in the Pisgah meeting house, but I’m told its interior was never painted, and that if you look up, you can see the foot prints of the workers on the ceiling planks.

The grave of Lenna Emma Curry Wingard (1862-1889), the first wife of my great-grandfather George Franklin Wingard (1860-1949). 

These are the graves of George Carroll (1914-1917) and Eugene Wilson Wingard (1915-1917), sons of Eugene Franklin “Buck” Wingard (1887-1966). Buck is the son of George Franklin and Lenna Wingard.

The grave of Mary Lou Miles Wingard (1824-1911), the wife of Richard William Wingard (1822-1862). Previously I posted a picture of Richard William Wingard’s grave at Wingard Cemetery, Wingard, Alabama. Richard William and Mary Lou Miles Wingard were the parents of my great-grandfather, George Franklin Wingard.

The graves of Coleman (1903-1984) and Lola (1905-1996) Wingard. Coleman was a son of George Franklin and Carrie Lou Wingard (1870-1955), who was the second wife of my great-grandfather. Coleman and Lola’s daughter Eloise lived in Huntsville for many years.

The grave of Mary Lou Wingard Kirksey (1897-1923), who died in childbirth. Mary Lou was a daughter of George Franklin and Carrie Lou Wingard.

The grave of Jack Smilie Wingard, son of George Franklin and Carrie Lou Wingard.

The grave of Jack William Wingard, the son of Jack Andrew (1931-2002) and Billie Wingard Sr., and grandson of Jack Smilie Wingard.

The spring that feeds . . .

. . . the Pisgah Primitive Baptist Church baptismal. Steps descend into the ice-cold water.
