HISTORY OF JAMES CHAPEL UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

"RICHARD JAMES 

"Richard James purchased of Gabriel Cox on April 29, 1786, five hundred acres of land on which was included the whole tract called Coxbury and part of Cox’s addition. The sons of Richard inherited the land in turn, donated one acre of land for the purpose of building a church on it. The present James Chapel, located on Ridge Road was built in 1818. Its history is well known and I will not expand on it."

INFORMATION ABOUT THE CEMETERY CENSUS

The webmaster cannot verify which entries were true "tombstone inscriptions" or simply relationships added by the submitter.  Therefore, the webmaster only put under "inscriptions" "mother," "father," "son," or "daughter."  

Also, it is unknown what the significance is for the asterisks...for example, before the name *Caster, (Kuster, Custard) Benjamin. 

The submitter used spaces between entries.  I do not know if this was for ease of reading in Excel, or if spaces were to indicate separate plots.   I kept the spacing the submitter used, by putting in a row of color between entries.

It seems these cemetery entries may be a combination of actual tombstone information, a DAR and a GAR List or other records, and research done by the submitter?  Refer all questions to the submitter or to the Cemetery, please.

From Quentin Werner Sept. 2007:  The James Chapel Cemetery is part of the James Chapel United Methodist Church. (The Old Stone Church) is what it is called by many. They sit high on a hill on Stone Church Road, that runs out of Gastonville to the Allegheny County Line. The Church is no longer used on a regular basics as of last year. The church was built back in 1817.  I don't have the means to send pictures by computer, but I could send something by mail, if you would like.
