Iím seeking info Morgans Baptist Church (ie Goose Creek Church)óDo you know if there is an old cemetery on the grounds of the original church (it's at Moneta, VA). Or whether an inventory of grave markers was ever made of burials there. The land for the original church was sold to the "Society of the Baptist Church" by James Davis via deed dated 24 December 1771 (Bedford County Deed Book 4, 1771-73). The land is described as one acre, located about one mile above Davis Mills and on the north side of Goose Creek. That was the first church. A second building, called "Morgans Meeting House," apparently was put up in the fall of 1789 (per church minutes). Then at a later date a church building was erected on a new location about a mile west of Stone Mountain (not clear what date that was). I am seeking info on cemeteries associated with these early churches.
Thank you for any help
