She received a two-acre parcel of this land on January 27, 1890, one acre for the cemetery and one acre for the church-Double Branch Missionary Baptist Church, now First Baptist of Wesley Chapel. The oldest marked grave is of James Strickland who died on January 30, 1908. Other early graves are of the pioneering families Godwin, Smith, Tucker and Wells.
