Bicentennial Celebration of the birth of
Mace Thomas Payne Brindley
On Saturday February 10, 2001, the about fifty Brindley family
members and friends braved the cold and windy weather to attend
a memorial service to celebrate the bicentennial birthday of
Mace Thomas Payne Brindley. The grave-side service was held at
the Brindley Family Cemetery in Simcoe, Alabama. The cemetery
in on original land purchased by Mace in 1832 when he moved his
family to the area.
Following the memorial service, a reception
was held at the Simcoe First Baptist Church fellowship hall.
Garbiel L. Brindley, the oldest son of Mace, was one of the founding
members of the church and many Brindleys and Brindley descendants
are buried in the cemetery.
*Special thanks to the Reverend and Mrs. Jimmy
Baker for their kind assistance.
