Re: John Demory's house

There are actually 2 cemetaries for the church. The original location of the church is south of its current location. The OLD cemetery is located there. To get there, take Snider Lane from Harpers Ferry Road (not sure if thats 671 or not). Stay straight on Snider Lane. You will pass a sign that says: End Highway Maintainence or something like that, and got past a few No Trespassing signs (don't worry about the signs). After these signs you will see a big house on your left, and a treehouse in the back yard. The OLD cemetery is located on the right side of Snider Lane directly across from the treehouse. It is about 150 ft. off of the road in the woods. This is also the site of the old church and the foundation is still visible. Many of the tombstones are old and worn. Many are fallen down and some grave sites have no markers. But there are definitly at least 2 Demory's there.

There is also a cemetery at the current location of the church. The church was relocated to the new location around the 1890's.

Please contact me about this further. I have lots of info on this, and my father would be wiling to show your nephew around the cemetery.
