Background:  The Horseshoe Baptist Cemetery was built first in 1790 on land formerly owned by Abraham Frye.  The land for the church and cemetery was sold to the Regular Baptist Society by Abraham and Esther Frye on Sep. 8, 1810, after which, in 1810 a brick church replaced the original log structure, and for seventy years the members worshipped here.  In 1880 that church was torn down and members joined Monongahela Baptists.
