Regarding Ebenezer Cemetery. The church was built in 1856 using bricks made in a field adjacent to it. It was one of the first churches to be in ministry to the Stafford community. The building was built on donated land which is now at the corner of Onville Road and Ebenezer Church Road. The Church was given the name “Ebenezer” in reference to the Bible passage of 1 Samuel where the army of Godís People were victorious in battle. The name “Ebenezer” means “God is our Rock of Help.”
