OLD SCHOOL BAPTIST CHURCH CEMETERY

This cemetery transcription has been provided by our faithful contributor, Jill Pevear, who says of it, "Old School Baptist Church, located adjacent to the county district court building just off Rt. 50 in Salisbury, is only used the first Sunday of each month. The cemetery is well maintained. My comments are in single parens ( ); information from John Jacob's book is in double parens (( ))."
