Sorry for the delay, computer was in the shop.
(Except in terms of hyper-sensitivity, I don't understand Edward's response to your post. However, based on personal reading of antebellum church minutes, he is correct about slaves and white people attending the same church. Membership rolls frequently mention slaves being admitted or dismissed from church.)
Yes, in the back of the church or balcony, as a member of a white church, not sure about that.
(More to your point, I don't know of any "white" church during pastored by a slave or free person of color antebellum years.)
R.G Williams book on Gen. Stonewall might be of interest for you.
(Have been unable to locate any wartime reference to Wimbush or locate him on the 1870 census of any Southern state. NO evidence that he was actually enrolled in Confederate service.)
I gave my sources, with the Grandsons testimony. You might be interested in “United States Statues at Large Vol. 72, Part 1, pages 133 & 134 Confederate Forces Veterans”
Don’t know what else I can give you.
