Deep Branch Baptist Church is located in the Cummings area of Hampton Co., on Fisher Road.  A council was called to meet at Deep Branch Church on Feb. 19th 1911 for the purpose of organizing the Baptist Church for Services preached by W. T. Derieux (not sure if T or F because of the handwriting back then.). Most of the members were from Sand Hill Baptist Church and Mt. Olive Baptist Church. They were the first members of Deep Branch, I think mostly of the area and the roll of members were ones that lived the closest to Deep Branch. Due to the distance it took by horse and buggies, Deep Branch would have served a better purpose for the members on the rolls that I know that lived closest to this church. The Church has a cemetery located to the side and back of the church. A softball field was added for recreation. to the back field.
