A pamphlet written about Nevils Creek Baptist Church (http://www.rootsweb.com/~gabulloc/cemeteries/history/nevilsc...
), states:"The Church records show that the original meeting house building was erected on a high bluff near Bonnell Creek in Effingham County on a plot of land that ..." I believe that part of Effingham County became part of Bulloch Co but I am not sure.
We know that Bonnells lived in the area in the early 1800s but not sure if they are the source of the creek naming. I cannot find Bonnell Creek using Google or Yahoo searches. Any help/info regarding the naming and location of this creek appreciated.
