Ridgeway church is the oldest church in Gilmer county, built during the civil war. Nancy Pankey saved that old log church. When she was an old woman, some new church members decided they wanted to get rid of the old log structure and build a modern church. That old lady sat down in front of the bulldozer and wouldn't budge. She said that church was built by Civil War veterans-her late husband included and she wasn't going to see it destroyed. Her plan worked. The old church is still there. Nancy is buried in the cemetery.

Jack on left and Vernon on right: Two Vietnam vets reunite after 29 years Vernon Arnold of Gilmer County and Jack Cromer first met when they were both shipped to Hawaii for nine months of jungle training before being shipped to Vietnam. They were best of buddies from the time they first met in Hawaii until they left Vietnam, and still are after 29 years. Vernon Arnold stayed in Vietnam for 11 months and 23 days, received two Purple Hearts, the Medal of Honor and a Bronze Star as well as various other honors. Jack Cromer left Vietnam a few days before Arnold. He heard some soldiers were killed, after he left, but did not know if Arnold was killed or not. Cromer looked for Arnold many years and Cromers son found Arnold.
