    I grew up in the Ridgedale subdivision adjacent to the cemetery in the 1960’s – 1970’s. I recall there was also a church above the cemetery at the end of the road. The church had long since been abandoned when I discovered it as a child about 1970. John Peter Briscoe was a pastor there and according to his 1907 obituary his funeral was conducted in the church with burial in the cemetery. Does anyone have pictures of the church and does anyone know which congregation(s) met there? Briscoe was a Presbyterian however I have also heard that the Beeler Family were Lutherans.

    My 4x great grandfather, Henry Harkleroad, his wife, Elizabeth and a daughter are buried in Beeler’s Cem. He was a Revolutionary War Soldier and his headstone has eroded greatly. I am in the process of getting a replacement stone reflecting his military service. Who do I need to contact to arrange placement of the stone. I have just started the process and am trying to gather as much info as I can before I submit the application. If you know who I need to contact, will you please have them to contact me at Please put Harkleroad in the subject line.
