I found the church and it's spire OK. The problem is that the adjusted coordinates don't match up. In fact, the coordinates point to the Henry County Courthouse, a couple of hundred feet away. The coordinates given is from averaging points taken on all four sides of the court house building and match favorable with the coordinates on the datasheet.
