Recollections: Rev. Willie Atwell was born and raised in Kentucky, where he grew up near the Davenport Family of Salem and Marion, Kentucky. At one time, I lived a few hours drive from Marion, KY, their boyhood home. Rev. Bro. Atwell and Rev. Bro. Davenport (one of my early pastors) both went to the Lola Pentecostal Church and are buried in the church cemetery. Both came out of that church into the Pentecostal Church where they ministered until their deaths. Rev. Bro. Atwood was the pastor of the church where my wife's great uncle and aunt, Jeff Cundiff Durham & Alma (Crafton)Durham attended. The church moved to Warren, MI, not far from Royal Oak, where there is a Swedenborgian Church: Royal Oak Church of the Holy City, 3517 Rochester Rd. Royal Oak, MI
