  • Martinsville Primitive Baptist Church was founded on October 28, 1899, and located in Martinsville, Virginia. Several names are used throughout the records books including Primitive Baptist Church at Martinsville, Martinsville Primitive Baptist Church, the Church Street Primitive Baptist Church Martinsville, Virginia, and Chatham Heights Primitive Baptist Church. Reference is made to the church meeting at a new location in Chatham Heights in 1963 which may explain some name variation. The church typically met monthly during which time minutes were recorded in the church record books. The first entry in this record book is February 1919 and the final entry is January 1973. The church records at the beginning start as early as 1899. A gap in entries exists from February 1945 until November 1959. Record books 2 through 4 (PBHLA-MPBC.002-.004) seem to fill this gap.
