1851-52 Henry A. Bond listed as General Dealer in Dry Goods, Grocer, Hardware, etc. (Thomson’s Mercantile & Professional Directory 1851-1852 NC)

from Joe and Sandy Kvech
We are most interested in the Annie Eliza McDowell 1835-1912 who is the sister of John Norfleet McDowell, my wife’s direct relative.
We’ve never been able to find Annie’s mother’s grave.
We know she died while the family was living in Edenton and between 1850 and 1860 if we trust the census.
We think she’s buried under the Edenton Baptist Church.
We found her son George B. McDowell and his wife (Eugenia) buried under the church. They were left there in 1912 when the church expanded into the adjacent cemetery and graves were moved to Beaver Hill if relatives agreed.
If no relatives were found the graves stayed.
Only five marked graves are under the church and no one knows how many unmarked graves because the church records burned in a church fire before 1900.
Regarding the graves under the First Baptist Church in Edenton, NC.
The book History of Edenton Baptist Church, Edenton, North Carolina 1817 -1992, p 80 says that the church expansion began in March 1915
To quote: “This necessitated the removal of many graves of those “long loved and lost awhile.” There was no rebellion when it was being done for the enlargement of His kingdom here. The graves which were moved were reinterred in Beaver Hill Cemetery under supervison of Mr. Wells. Many graves were left undisturbed and graves, with stones, can still be seen today beneath the church. The lot was prepared for the foundation of our new church. “I have a four page document from the church office recorded by John Sykes in May 1996 with the permission of the First Baptist Church Office.”
It says that the original cemetery was on both sides of the old church and now only the north side remains undisturbed. The southern section was the site of the new church.

The five marked graves were:
Pattie J. Bateman, Daughter of A.J. & Elizabeth M. Bateman,
Born Jan 11, 1853, Died Sep 28, 1873
Andres J. Bateman, Died July 1, 1855, A.E. 29 yrs, 10ms &9 ds
George B. McDowell, Born Oct 8, 1829, Died Mar 14, 1882
Jennie, Wife of George B. McDowell & N. L. Shaw
Born Aug 24, 1845, Died Oct 13, 1884
Sarah Haughton, wife of Jonathan Haughton
Born Sep 12, 1768, Died Jun 11, 1834

There is also a diagram of the church foundation and positions of the marked graves.
I think the orientation of the diagram is off 180 degrees judging from my looking under the church.

    1. Dixie and I were both searching Cotten/Cotton of the area. The two Cotton families were not related we discovered. . . but there may be a connection through the Bond family..
