Biographical and Historical Note

Meadow Branch Baptist Church, located in Union County, North Carolina, was organized January 13, 1810. The church has been a member of the following Baptist associations: Moriah, S.C. (1815-?), Brown Creek (1856-1884) and Union (1884-present). The church may have been known as "Anson County Church" while in the Moriah Baptist Association. The church also changed its name to Grove Spring Baptist Church in 1835, due to a split between missionaries and anti-missionaries. Today, Meadow Branch Baptist Church is known as Wingate Baptist Church in Wingate, North Carolina.
