Gaston Co. was once part of Lincoln Co., and Olney Presbyterian Church was organized in 1793. In the history titled "Olney Presbyterian Church 1793-1968, I found the following: "Whether by accident or design, an Independend Presbyterian Church was established on the same grounds as the original Olney.

D. Davis, R. Y. Russell, G. W. Davis, James Stewart Bailey, J. O. Daniel, W. W. Carothers, and W. W. Ratchford served as pastors. Rev. J. O. Daniel died while pastor and is buried in the cemetery.
