Looking for location and history of
BEECH HILL CUMBERLAND PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, BELFAST, TN.
[Wonder where any church records would be located today,
if there are any?]
It is mentioned in old (1875-1880) Lewisburg newspapers,
Tennessee Plainfolk, a book about Belfast, and my grand
mother's 1929 obituary [where her funeral service was held].
There were Beech surnames in Marshall County although I do
not know whether they were connected with this church. There is still a FINLEY-BEECH Road that runs from Lewisburg
in an easterly direction to the Bedford County Line. Don't
know if there is a connection with the church, but the road
is not far N. of Round Hill Cemetery. ENDSLEY-RANKIN ROAD
turns off of it. Many of my ENDSLEY kin lived in that
neighborhood and attended BEECH HILL CP CHURCH and are
buried at ROUND HILL CEMETERY.
