Regarding Prince Williams Baptist Church. Constituted September 12, 1759 as Coosawhatchie Church. This church became in 1822 Beech Branch Baptist Church.

In that year of the founding of Coosawhatchie Church (1759), the Cherokees were on the warpath to the southwest of the neighborhood of the first church. The Nuscogees (Muscogees?), whose chief tribe were the Yamassee Indians, had their principal town on the lower part of the Coosawhatchie River.
