    On the Walton's TV show - Ma and Grandma are dye-in-the-wool Baptists and regularly attend the local Baptist church.

    I don't think the show every ID the church as IFB or SBC; so what do you think - were the Walton's SBC or IFB - or some other Baptist group?

    Earl Hamner based the series on his upbringing in Schuyler, Va.

    On the series, the church's ministers hailed from 'Boatwright University' = University of Richmond.

    Schuyler Baptist Church fellowships with the Baptist General Association of Virginia rather than that rump group, whatever it's called.

    S. C. Clopton, (d. 1847, Guangzhou, China) the first missionary appointed by the Board of Foreign Missions of the SBC, was a cousin of the Hamners.

    According to the sign, which they showed in one or two episodes, it was a SBC
