Providence Presbyterian – Lowndesville, South Carolina

Providence Presbyterian Church in the Abbeville County town of Lowndesville was organized in 1841 as a result of the merging of two local smaller churches, New Harmony Presbyterian and Providence. This church was built the following year and originally included a slave gallery as well as a separate entrance for slaves.

Providence Presbyterian was significantly remodeled in 1886. Alterations included removing the slave gallery and adding the building’s corner entrance and campanile, or bell tower. The stove that was placed in the church in 1842 remains there today. Providence Presbyterian Church is a member of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) denomination.

What a unique 1886 diagonal entrance modification for this 1841 Presbyterian church.

I am searching for information on Mary Elizabeth Goff who was born Oct 30, 1830, in Lownesville, SC. She married 1850 Edward Washington Vann, son of Edward Vann and Rebecca Hinton. The marriage occurred in Madison County, Florida, and she remained there until her death. Is there any information in your records giving Mary E. Goff’s parents’ names, or anything about the Vann family? A response would be much appreciated…..Thank you
