|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Mariah Creek Christian Church was originally part of Mariah Creek Baptist Church. They split in 1833 and Mariah Creek Christian Church was formed. Members met in each other's homes until 1837 when a log church was built with cemetery grounds nearby on the banks of Mariah Creek. A frame church was erected in 1852 when members needed more room to worship. The present day church, built in 1900, is the fourth on that spot...the second and third having burnt down. Many of the charter members of the church and their descendants rest in the cemetery. Names include: Polks, Coxes, Rubys, Pietys, Lindseys and Hollingsworth.
