on the north west side of the church.Judge Curtis McLellan own the land
across the hwy on the south in front of the church.Wofford cemetery is
just a little ways north of the church.The Turner cemetery is south west
of the church. There are may unmarked graves in both

cemeteries date back a good ways.
Charles Pennington lives north of the church.And descended from the old
