Mt. Olive Baptist Cemetery - Part 1

The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey published a transcription  that was copied and checked by members of the Society on April 26, 1980 and published in Vol. 57 on pages 99-104.

Mount Olive Baptist Church, originally called The Schooley's Mountain Baptist Church, was founded prior to 1753. From its earliest beginnings to the post-Revolutionary period this congregation was part of the Morristown Baptist Church. The original log meeting house was erected on a site donated by James Heaton to serve four denominations. The Baptists used this building for 40 years; in 1795 the log structure was replaced. In the spring of 1854 the second building shared was sold and the Baptists and Presbyterians each built their own house of worship.

I have tried to note the discrepancies that were found between the inscriptions in the GMNJ manuscript and those in the Cox manuscript.

The Cox manuscript was supplied by Robert H. Smith of Shelby, NC. My grateful thanks for sharing.

"A virtuous woman, prudent and sincere,
A tender wife and parent slumbers here,
With Martha's care, she still had Mary's part
The world employed her hand but Heaven, her heart.
While here, she adorned the doctrine she professed,
Her course is finished and her soul's at rest."
