FROM "HISTORY OF THE PRIMITIVE BAPTIST CHURCH AT COLUMBIA" BY ELDER STEPHEN R. AQUINO:


ELDER NORMAN TROY EDWARDS


Pastor from June 1973 through August 16, 1981. Was born on February 18, 1907, in a small town of Hillsville in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, west of Roanoke. He moved to Baltimore area in about 1929/30. His first wife was Ethel Patton. Three children were born of this union, William, Norma Jean and Richard. After a lengthy illness Ethel passed away and Troy remarried to Rose Nester in November of 1971.


On April 4, 1954, Brother Troy was united to the Mt. Carmel Primitive Baptist Church, being baptized by Elder F.E. Thompson who said, "Elder Troy told me several times, I sought relief from the burden to be baptized and as I came from the water another burden was placed upon me.' He made a short talk at the water's edge and it was evident that the church would hear more from this new member." Elder Thompson stated, "I could tell something unusual from his experience in baptizing, I baptized a preacher."

Then, on December 14, 1956, he began preaching and was ordained a Minister on June 10, 1959 at Mt. Carmel Church and elected associate Pastor under Elder F. E. Thompson.Columbia Church called Elder N. Troy Edwards to pastor on June 16, 1973. Elder Edwards was faithful to the cause and continued until his health failed prompting him to resign August 16, 1981.
