St. Luke's (Smithfield), Isle of Wight Co., VA
Originally known as Newport Parish Church, this may be the oldest standing church in the United States. The actual date is debated: Smith gives the date as about 1632-65 (36) whereas The Virginia Landmarks Register suggests it was built near the end of the seventeenth century (237). In either case, it is the only original Gothic building to have survived in the United States. Smith defines the style further as medieval south English parish church, noting the simple plan, the square tower, the round-headed windows with two lancets, and the buttresses along the nave exterior. Smith adds that the church would originally have had clear glass diamond panes. The church is now the official historic shrine of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia. Check it out ~ "Wikipedia" (w/photo).

St John Baptist Church
You have included a photo of St. John Baptist Church (where???) to both Thomas (d. England) and Sarah "Sallie (Edwards) Joyner's (d. Isle of IOW Co., VA) memorials and the "caption" you have given does "not" say. The list given by F.A.G. is "not" shown either.

Please remove the photo of headstone that is incorrect. That is not the headstone for this memorial.

RE: James Tippett's Daughter
I'm not sure who you want me to connect to James and Myra Tippett Rowe. You gave me the connect to Myra Tippett Rowe wife of James Rowe.
