Looking for church records related to Ephraim Pray, b near Augusta in 1809. He became the founder of Douglas County Georgia in 1871. Apprenticed to an engineer, he became a civil engineer at about age 18 and migrated to Greene and Handcock Counties of Georgia where he built a bridge, mill, house and other structures at Skull Shoals. He formed a Baptist Church in his Georgia community (Pray's Mill Baptist Church – still active) but his “home church” in Maine would not transfer his “letter” because he had become a slave owner. At some church near Augusta there has to be a record of his request or that he was “dismissed from fellowship” from a church in/near Augusta about 1840-1845. there might also be baptismal or birth records.

Ephraim Pray (1809-1893) m Mary Ann Little. Nothing is known of his Maine family, his parents or siblings. There were in the 19th. C only two groups named "Pray." This one and another near Savannah.

Thank you for going to the the effort but this has to be another Ephraim Pray. In 1840 he was living in Georgia.
