For those interested in this subject, as suggested by Pat Colbert, here is the link to the Special Collections in Mercer University, which calls itself "Home of the The Georgia Baptist History Depository":
In further digging on the Internet, I did find that Antioch Baptist Church was founded in 1809 in Morgan County. Here is the link:
This website has member lists and other information for this church from 1809 to 1847. Unfortunately, page 1 of the records is missing, the page where Charles Pate would have appeared if this was in fact the church he helped found.
The Antioch Church is near what is now Godfrey, but early on it was in a different location, on Little River. This church moved to its present location in 1848. Was this the church built on land donated by Phillip Zimmerman?
If anyone has or finds any connection of Charles Pate or Phillip Zimmerman to this church, please let me know.
