***This Baptist Church was organized formally in 1855 with 54 charter
members, although records indicate a congregation was in existence as
early as 1851. An early 1900s fire burned their log sanctuary, which
was replaced by the present structure. Monthly services and summer
camp meetings were held here until 1928, when the church moved to
Cline's Ferry Road. The congregation's first pastor, Enoch S. S.
Phelps, is buried in this cemetery, as are descendants of John Newton,
for whom the county is named. Land for the "scraped style" cemetery
was given in 1876 by W. A. Droddy.
