Inscription. This is the old Quaker Cemetery, marking the site of land conveyed by David Smith in October 1778. To Armel Fincher, John Clark, Ralph Hunt, John Neaderman, trustees appointed by the people called Quakers, members of the meeting on Padgetts Creek, whereon a church was built. Some years later the Quakers moved from this vicinity and in May 1822 the same tract was surveyed for Nathaniel Gist, after which it was acquired by the Methodist Church congregation. The Quaker Methodist Church building was moved to another location some years ago.
