Land for the first sanctuary, now the site of Old Williams Cemetery, was donated by Purviance Williams. The congregation was originally known as Bethesda Church, but the name was later changed to honor Samuel G. Allison, who gave land for the present building site in 1882. Traditionally, Allison Chapel United Methodist Church has been considered the oldest active church in Panola County. -- Texas Atlas

Hi. I am Nancy Pope. My grandmother, Mattie Elaine Williams I believe was the granddaughter of Benjamin H. Williams, son of Purviance Williams in his first marriage. My father actually still has property in East Texas. I'm still trying to verify the connection. I believe he was married to Nancy Ann Ackerd. He had a son named Marion Eldridge Williams who would be my great grandfather. Thanks so much
