I am not sure I completly understand your message. You said something about an Edney Meeting house in the neighborhood of Tank.
Levin, Newton and Allison Edney were either brother or cousins to Samuel and Asa Edney who were Methodist preachers and founded Edneyville in the western part of NC. They were all born here in the eastern part of NC, in Camden County which was part of Pasquotank Co until 1777. Where was Edney Meeting house and where was Tank? The early records of McBride Methodist church have been lost. They would have told us a lot about the Edney family. McBride is on the site of a chapel of the Church of England which was here before 1733. In 1792 the Methodist and the Episcopalians got a joint lease for the property. The Episcopalians either died out, moved away or became Methodist. Some of the Edney property was just a mile from McBride Church. McBride had to be the church they attended.
