|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Old Elam Missionary Baptist Church was established in 1819 by the Rev Jesse McLamore. Jesse McLamore came from North Carolina in 1818 and helped establish Old Elam Missionary Baptist Church. I find it terribly sad the condition of his final resting place.
About 1849 the church split and became place of worship primarily for African Americans.
A full transcription was not done due to extreme overgrowth and because I was asked to leave by one of the church deacons.
Since my initial visit to transcribe the cemetery, the church is under new leadership. The new leadership has graciously provided a list of all known burials in the cemetery. Please be patient as I add them. My sincere appreciation to Mr. Martin and Mr. Salery for this precious, important information.
