The Post Oak Grove Methodist Church was organized October 13, 1874, by Rev. John J. Farmer in a log school house built by Mr. Thomas S. Slater. At this time there were thirty-five members received into the church. The first building was a box house 30X35 feet and was built in 1874. The second building was built during the pastorate of J. M. Baker in 1892. In 1910 the church name was changed to Brushie Prairie Methodist Church. Beginning in the fall of 1913 Brushie was placed on the Emmett Circuit, a new Parsonage was built at Emmett and the Rev. W. E. Hawkin was the new pastor.

Brother Hawkins was pastor at Brushie from 1913 till 1919.

The third and present building was built in 1927, to Sunday school rooms were added in 1953/54, under the leadership of C. B. Wilson. In 1952 the Mt. Zion Church (Alliance Hall) came into the Brushie Methodist Church.

Their have been nineteen young men that have been called for the service of their Lord.

In 1965 the Navarro Mills Lake filled and their were not enough people of the Methodist Church to keep the church in progress, so it was disbanded and the members went to Frost and Dawson. The Brushie Prairie Church roll book went to the Dawson Methodist Church. The Waxahachie Methodist Conference agreed to let the building remain as long as church services were held at least once a year.

We still have our Homecomings and also funerals. This agreement has been kept, and the building, and grounds are in very good condition.

Thomas S. Slater was born in Tennessee Dec. 28, 1828. He came to Texas as a young man and served as overseer and guard of slaves for a Mr. Nelson who was the father of Hasseltine Nelson whom married Thomas S. Slater. Hasseltine's father presented her and Thomas S. Slater five slaves as wedding presents. Deeds were started on September 29, 1858 and made legal October 31, 1859; thus we know by the dates on the deeds for the five slaves that Thomas S. and Hasseltine Slater were living in Navarro County in 1858. Three children were born to them. After Hasseltine's death he married Josephine Boyston and they had four children. Following his second wife's death he married Emma French and they had six children.

During his life time Thomas S. Slater built a log school house in the Brushie Prairie Community, this effort proved to be a great influence on the Brushie Prairie Community because there have been a great number of school teachers who have gone out from this community by this man's great deed.

In 1874 Thomas S. Slater also started a church in this log school house and it was called Post Oak Grove. Mr. Slater was the first Superintendent of this church. Finally in 1910 the Post Oak Church was changed to Brushie Prairie Methodist Church.

He died July 24, 1884 and was buried in the Navarro Mill's cemetery in Navarro Co. Texas.

John J. Farmer was born to Peter and Susania Ayers Farmer on July 30, 1820 in Franklin Co. Tennessee.

Miss Sylvania French who was born March 15, 1837 in Marshall Co. Alabama and married John J. Farmer on November 30, 1853. Between 1856 and 1858 Mr. and Mrs. John J. Farmer moved to Texas, where he served in the Confederate Army in the 19th Brigade, Texas Militia. He became a Methodist Minister and on October 13, 1874 he founded the Post Oak Church which is known today as the Brushie Prairie Methodist Church. To this union were born six children, 1. Ellen J. Farmer, Aug. 16, 1854; 2. James M. Farmer, 1856-1870; 3. Sallie A. Farmer, June 2, 1858; 4. Mary Alice Farmer, 1860-died young; 5. Rhodah Farmer, 1862; 6. John Henry Farmer, July 17, 1864-April 23, 1945 and was buried in the Dawson cemetery.

After Mrs. Farmers death John J. Farmer married Jane Peters on January 20, 1867-they had three children: 1. Ruben Farmer, 1873; 2. Minnie Farmer, 1876-married Rev. J. J. Sykes; 3. Paralee Farmer, 1878, died young.

Rev. John J. Farmer died January 5, 1867 and was buried in the Raleigh cemetery, Navarro Co. Texas.

Mr. Farmer was the father of John Henry Farmer of Dawson, Texas; who also was a great influence on the Brushie Prairie Methodist Church. He was there when the church needed him. He was always helping in time of need to pay the Preachers.


The Johnson Family came to Texas in 1852 and settled in the Brushie Prairie Community, Navarro Co. Texas. The Johnson Family gave the land of two acres for the church and cemetery, January 21, 1893.

These are the names of the Johnson family that appear on the deeds:

J. M. Johnson

W. D. Johnson

E. W. Johnson

F. M. Johnson

Mr. F. M. Johnson was born in Tennessee. He was in the Confederate Army.Page 4.
