I am researching the Overfelt family from Franklin County, VA., listed on census reports and tax records from the late 1700s through 1840. A land sale document cited land owned by Matthias Overfelt on "Little Creek". I have located references to a "Little Creek Cemetery" and "Little Creek Primitive Baptist Church" in Franklin Co. at Boones Mill. Does anyone have any information on this cemetery or church? Thanks.
