A very old congregation going back to 1721. Ballyjamesduff united with Bellasis in 1925 and sermons ceased to be preached at Ballyjamesduff in 1980. The church has now been demolished. David Byers has visited this cemetery on multiple occasions and has a very interesting and thorough description, to be found at byersfamilies.com.
In 2001 he describes it thus:
"...a very old, now closed, cemetery at the top of Piggery Hill at a bad bend on the Virginia road out of Ballyjamesduff. ... we set off for the Piggery Hill cemetery, which we found behind old, locked, and very rusty
gates. Sure enough there were some gravestones standing amongst the very long wet grass. There may well have been other stones under the grass and out of sight."
