|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Many of the pioneer citizens of Coffee County were believers in Primitive Baptist doctrine. They had churches in many places in South Georgia and some in Coffee County. One of the oldest churches near Coffee County is Arnie Church. It is situated about ten miles southwest of Douglas in Atkinson Co, Ga.
This church was organized about 1886 by Elder Mobley and others. Elder King was one of the first pastors of that church.
Among some of the members of that old church were the Morris', O'Steens', Douglas', McKinnons', Vickers' and others.
This church (located near Mora, Ga.) has been a landmark among the Primitive Baptists of Coffee County. It is situated among a class of good farmers. They also have a good school near the church and are a progressive people.
The Primitive Baptist, as a people, are conservative in all matters. They are not quick "To go after strange fire to burn on their Altars.'' They have always stood like a stone wall between the church and all worldly institutions. They believe in a strict separation of church and state, or we might say the church and the world. There are no better citizens in Coffee County than the Primitive Baptists & their sons and daughters. They are strict to meet all their obligations, financial and otherwise, and are truly loyal to the Primitive Baptist Church.
