Cemetery notes and/or description:
On July 13, 1800, the Big Springs Primitive Baptist Church was organized. The church was built in 1795-1796 and was known as the Big Springs Meeting house. In the church yard and cemetery stands a memorial (placed by the Rosenbalm Family) to Drew Harrell who hewed the logs and helped Rev. Tidence Lane build the church. It is believed that Drew Harrell is buried in the church cemetery.

In 1807 Thomas Hurst became a member of the church and from 1844 to 1845 he was the preacher. Hiram, following in his father's footsteps preached in 1846 to 1858; and Nathan, continuing the tradition of his grandfather and father was a preacher from 1874 to 1903. Mark Hurst also preached at Big Springs from 1866 to 1871. Thomas Hurst is buried in the church cemetery. Hiram Hurst and Nathan Hurst are buried in the Tom Evans Cemetery (formerly known as the Evans Cemetery) in Claiborne County. It is unclear where Mark Hurst is buried.

J. C. Hurst wrote in his book "Hursts of Shenandoah" that in 1940 of the 63 members, 55 were related (descendants and their families) to Thomas Hurst.
