WETIPQUIN METHODIST CHURCH CEMETERY


The image on the left is the Wetipquin Methodist Church, taken August 2002. The image on the right is the gravestone of Francis Asbury Mezick, grandson of Covington Mezick.

Known for most of its existance as "Mezick's Church" or "Mezzeck's Meeting House", the Wetipquin Chapel of the Methodist Church was built on land given by Covington MEZICK and his wife, Leah, in 1826. This was 19 years after Covington had quit (and simultaneously been excommunicated from) the Episcopal Church's Stepney Parish. For more on this incident, see Trouble In Old Stepney Parish. The land upon which Mezick's Church was built was a portion of a tract of land called "Spry" (or "Spy"), patented in 1794 by Covington Mezick and his cousin, Elihu Mezick. The church building was built around 1825. The gravestones and grounds are maintained in excellent condition. This cemetery listing was obtained on Sunday, August 3, 1997 by Shari Handley, Jill Pevear, Chris Pevear, Robert Simms, and Paul Willing.
