About Reverend Conrad Cheatam

I am a native of Abbeville, SC. I graduated from Erskine College in 1962 and graduated from Erskine Seminary in 1967. I came to Mt. Zion as student supply in July 1966 and was ordained and installed as pastor in 1967. I married the former Miss Barbara Houston on September 16, 1967. Ours was the first wedding in what then was the new Mt. Zion church building. We lived in a trailer just west of the little shed. In May 1973 I accepted a call to become pastor of the Louisville A.R.P. Church, Louisville, GA. In July 1978 I became pastor of the Hopewell A.R.P. Church near Covington, GA. I became pastor of the Elsberry A.R.P. Church in October 2000 and Stated Supply of Mt. Zion in July 2002.


I have a big interest in history. I served 3.5 years as president of the Newton County Historical Society in Covington, GA, where I wrote monthly historical articles for "The Covington News." I am currently the president of the Lincoln County Historical Society. My main hobby is railroad hisotry. I maintain extensive historical information on the old St. Louis & Hannibal Railroad and the St. Louis & Troy Railroad. I also maintain historical information on the old Due West Railway (SC), the Greenville & Columbia Railway (SC), and the Louisville & Wadley Railroad (GA).
