One of the founding members of the church, as noted above, was James H. Carmichael, who owned a store and farm nearby on Atlanta Road. His son, Jimmie, was raised in the church and grew up to be one of the most important figures in Cobb County's history. Young James was hit by a car while crossing Atlanta Road in 1926 while running to catch the streetcar that was to take him to Marietta High School. He broke his back and was never again able to stand or walk without assistance.

And he was chosen in 1933 to serve as Superintendent of the Log Cabin Church.

The names of more than 40 members of the church who served in World War II are carved on the stone lid of the "World War II Wishing Well" at the church. At least one member, Luther Turpin, lost his life in that war, flying over "The Hump" into China. Member Ruth Walker also served in uniform.
