"A soldier in the Revolutionary War, volunteered in Fairfield County, South Carolina in 1776. Served under General Green, captured at the battle of Rock Mount, but escaped. Service ended at the battle of Yorktown in 1781. Afterward lived in North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana. Was a Baptist Preacher forty years. (Inscription from his stone).
On Oct. 18, 1779, while still serving in the Revolution, Henry married Dica Blake, daughter of John Blake and Morning Dove.
Henry's family had been Quakers until the Revolutionary War, as the Quakers did not believe in fighting a war, they became Baptists.
Nearly two generations of Henry and Dica's children and descendants are buried in this cemetery, along with other church members and their families. Sadly, many stones are gone.
