An unknown correspondent from Chapmanville in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on March 26, 1929:
At a called meeting of the members of the Church of Christ of Chapmanville Friday night the church as reorganized. New officers, who will assume their duties at once, were chosen as follows: Elders—O.C. Winters, Al Chafin and W.A. McCloud, for one, two and three years, respectively. Deacons—Mont Butcher and Wallace Chafin, one year each, and S.A. Ferrell and N.E. Lowe, two years each. Deaconesses—Mrs. Dollie Dingess, Mrs. A.R. Duty and Mrs. Z.T. Taylor, three years, two years and one year, respectively. Trustees—S.A. Ferrell, Al Chafin and N.E. Lowe. Associate trustees—Wallace Chafin and O.C. Winters. Those officers who were elected for one year will hold office until the annual business meeting, which will be held the Lord’s Day previous to the Logan-Mingo convention next fall. At this business meeting the new officers will be elected for three years, for the elders and deaconesses, and two years for the deacons. The official board will meet the first Friday night of each month at 3:30 o’clock, unless there is prayer meeting on that evening, when the official board meeting will be held after prayer meeting. S.A. Ferrell was continued as clerk of the church and secretary of the board. O.C. Winters was selected chairman of the official board. Rev. A.P. Benjamin was chairman of the Friday night meeting.
