      "The Maineville Burying Ground is of later origin. The following, copied from an inscription on a stone, probably marks about the time of its establishment as a resting-place for the dead: “Sacred to the memory of Peter Dudley, who departed this life October 22, 1819.”
    • page 623-624 (Maineville Free-Will Baptist Church)
      "This church was organized by Elder Moses Dudley, Henry Greely and others as early as 1822 or 1823. It was called Salt Spring Church. For a number of years they worshiped in a schoolhouse east of Maineville, and not far from the Maineville Graveyard. About 1830, they built the present brick building."

    • page 21 (The Maineville Baptist Church)
      "For a number of years they worshipped in a log house east of Maineville under the leadership of Elder Moses Dudley their first paster.  The Baptist Cemetery was laid out on the east side of the log meeting house from a drawing made by Elder Moses Dudley.  The first burial was Elijah Tufts, December 19, 1811. After the old log meeting house was torn down the burial ground was enlarged by the "New Addition to the Baptist cemetery".  The addition was west of the original cemetery, and joined the original burial ground just beyond the site of the old log meeting house." [the book contains images of the drawings of the cemetery done by Moses Dudley ]
