Hugh Verdie was instrumental in procuring sandstone rocks from the side of the bluff on Sand Mountain with several other friends to build the Friendship Baptist Church which still stands today. He was the custodian for the church and the groundskeeper for many years. He would organize groups of men to open and close graves by hand. If someone could not afford a granite marker he would handcraft one for them out of the same sandstone as the church. He was a faithful member of the church and brought all his family there to worship with him and his wife, Minnie Mae Jones Roberts. His first wife and their little babies who did not survive are also buried there, Nattie McCurdy Roberts.
