I am in the process of adding as much information as I can about each individual church/cemetery.  If anyone has any records, history or photos of churches/cemeteries they would like to share, please consider donating the data so that everyone may share in your find!  Some of these churches do not exist anymore and others have changed their names.  Many of the churches had an adjoining cemetery, so those will not be listed separately.  I will eventually add a link for each church and cemetery with its history, years of operation, location, where the records are available, addresses, etc.  I do not live in the county and am doing most of my research through email, snail mail and the telephone.  If there are any area residents who would like to help in making this page as accurate as possible, please do drop me a line.  Thanks again to all those who have helped!
