I am trying to reasearch and gather information on the Rhoad family, most of whom where from the Hunters Chapel Area. My Great Grandfather is the late Rev. George Tillman Rhoad who is burried at the old Zion Methodist Church Cemetary. If anyone has any information please contact me.

Dana: My greatgrand mother was Mirah Rhoad. There are still a good many of the Rhoad family that go back to John Richard, Nathaniel etc.
Would be glad to share information.

My GGgrand father J. Rice Walkler is also buried at old Zion Methodist Church Cemetery. The Church by the way was moved in about 1900 and my Smith and Walker relatives are buried in the newer cemetery.

Please get back if you will. Thanks, Jim smith

He had 8 children, Ernest Tillman Rhoad, John Albert Rhoad, Mary Rhoad Berry, Tilly Rhoad Perry, Elizabeth"Bess" Rhoad Joye, Daniel Lemaster Rhoad, George Rhoad, Richard "Dick" Rhoad. The only living is Tilly Perry, however I am not sure of her whereabouts. Her Husband is or was Fc Perry. who at one time was a Professer at University Of South Carolina. My G. Grandmother was Mary Ellen Rhoad. However, I am uncertain of her surname.

If anyone has reliable information that family members are buried at the Old Zion Methodist Church Cemetery, please let me know and I'll add them to this page:
http://www.patsabin.com/bamberg/cemeteries/OldZionCem.html

Not as a transcription but as a special notation. I'm also very, very interested in the history of this congregation, early members, when the church moved, etc.

I tried to find the "new" church on my last visit and never did find it.

Pat: J. Rice Walker, b 14 Aug 1828, d 11 Aug 1876 is reported to be buried at Old Zion Methodist Cemetery. This is shown in the Book Southern linders Volume II, by Myrtle and Bill Linder. I have confirmed the information on the cemetery, except that Hanna S. was the wife of J. E. Rhoad (John E. Rhoad) I have a photo of the stone to prove this. Also for what it is worth Nathaniel D. Rhoad was the son of John Rhoad B 1768 and Mary M. wife of N. D. Rhoad was Mary Margaret Byrd.

As for the location of the Cemetery Howell's Mill Road crosses Hunter's Chapel Road at the Baptist Church. The Church is on one corner and the Baptist Cemetery is on another. If you turn past the baptist cemetery and go about 2 + miles there is a sign on a tree on the left which says "Old Zion Cemetery." Turn left and It is a short ways on the right. The road is good and not too grown up. It looks much the same as the Picture you have on the net.

I am attempting to locate any records which may still exist of the old Church but feel there is little hope. My relatives Rhoad, Walker, Smith and Rentz all attended the new Zion Methodist Church and many are buried in the new Church cemetery, which is not very far from the site of the old Church.

Would be happy to continue this with you if you would like.

Pat: Sorry I miss read your message.

The new Zion Methodist Church is very close to the old one.

Coming from the Baptist Church on Hunter's Chapel road in the direction away from Bamberg, turn left at the first road and the Church is on the left a short distance. Sorry I do not remember the name of the road.

Jim,

I'll add your information to the web page. Let's keep our eyes and ears open for additional information on church members who are buried there.

Also, any church rosters or history of the congregation would be helpful in establishing the members of the old church.

Pat

Jim: My paternal grandmother's maiden name was Ersula Walker. They called her "Suge". My grandfather, John Daniel Walker married her (his 2nd marriage). She died at 36 of the flu. The year of her death may have been around 1928 +/- 10 years. She is buried at Pleasant Hill Cemetary. Have you ever run across her name? I'm trying to get info on her family.

Thanks in advance

Jim: Thank you and glad to meet another cousin! I always wondered where my father got the name 'Mouzon'. That was his middle name. They called his mother Shuge (like sugar). You wouldn't happen to know when the Kirkland family first came to US would you? I had heard from My Aunt Jule, (from John D's first marriage) that they were from Ireland originally but she didn't know what year they immigrated. Also there is a town named Kirkland in Scotland so wasn't sure if Ireland was correct.
