Landers in Elbert Co.

I just read Elizabeth Roberson's non-fiction book "Weep Not For Me, Dear Mother". It is about CSA soldier Eli Landers of Gwinnett Co., Ga. and his many letters home during the Civil War.

In the Appendix it talks about Eli's family. His father was Humphrey Davis Landers(b.1788) and his mother was Sarah Browner. They married in Elbert Co. before migrating to Gwinnett. Humphrey's father was Tyree Landers, he and his brother served in the Revolutionary War from Granville Co., N.C.. After the war, Tyree and his wife Frances Davis, moved to Elbert Co. from N.C.. Tyree founded several Primitive Baptist churches in the Elbert Co. area.

Tyree's father was Luke Landers. Luke married Rachel Paris in Hanover Co.,Virginia before moving to N.C..

Does anyone know additional information about Tyree Landers' churches and/or burial spot in Elbert Co.?
