Rev. Ptolemy Watkins Corr was minister at Gainesville's First Baptist Church from August 1888 until 1891. He had graduated from Richmond College in Virginia, and he augmented his $700-per-year pastoral income from Gainesville's First Baptist by becoming the principal of Gainesville's public school. He also preached at many small Baptist churches in northern Florida, including Ft. White, White Springs, Cedar Key, and Hampton. When he died in 1931 he was the principal of a junior high school in Calhoun County, Florida.
