A Look Into the Past

Early History of Mt. Ephraim Church
This history of the Baptist Church in Owens, Florida (DeSoto County) was contributed by the Mt. Ephraim Baptist Church in memory of the early members of the Church, it was taken from the record book of the Church when it was organized on August 9, 1884. 
Owen H Dishong was unanimously elected Church Clerk and O.S. Harris, Church Treasurer. It was then resolved that the minutes be read and adopted at the close of each conference. It was decided that the organization be called and known as the Mount Ephraim Church and be located at the Hayman School House. Elder J.H. Hayman was then called to the Pastoral care of the Church.

April 11, 1885: The building of the church was freely conversed upon and the committee was appointed to be known as the Building Committee: O.H. Dishong, O.S. Harris, W.C. Hayman, M.F Lanier, Wiles Hanchey, Henry Langford, whose duty shall be to draft the plan of the house, make out the bill of lumber and at all time receive subscriptions. Forwarding the work to it each contribution.

May 1, 1886: W.C Hayman and wife, Sallie Hayman, deeded 3 Acres of land more or less in the County of Manatee, Florida. William Cunningham Hayman, who gave the land for the Mt. Ephraim Baptist Church was a son of James and Delilah Hayman. The renowned Jeremiah Madison Hayman, pioneer Baptist preacher who laid the foundations of many of the strong Baptist churches of South Florida, was William's older brother. William was also a Baptist preacher and served as such at the Mt. Ephraim Church. William married Mrs.Sarah "Sallie" Carlton Hooker in Polk County.
