Cemetery notes and/or description:
A church was started which became Harris' Meeting House.

Benjamin Willis Hicks wrote:

"My father, Abner agreed to help and furnish the land. The deed was made by Abner Hicks and is recorded in Book V, Page 329, Granville, ... two acres including the use of the spring, is still known as 'The Meeting House Spring.'"

In 1828, owing to a disagreement upon the question of Lay representation, a division took place among the members of Harris' Meeting House. Those adhering to the Methodist Episcopal Church tore down the church and moved it to the site now occupied by Salem Methodist Church while the other group moved in another direction and named their church "Rehoboth," meaning "There is Room."

There is a historic marker on NC Highway 158 East (Oxford Road) opposite White Oak Villa Cemetery about the Harris' Meeting House. It says: "Founded by Methodists prior to 1778. It was the mother church in this area. Disbanded in 1828. Stood 1 mi. N."
