Hi, yes, this Church was created back in the 1800's before the town of Broadway was started in 1870. This Church (the way a crow flies) is not far from the Cape Fear River at all. Most of the original settlers were close to the river or not far. As time went on, they moved further out toward Broadway. The Church was no longer used after the members built a new Church in the town of Broadway and named it Broadway United Methodist Church. This took place in the early 1900's, maybe 1908?? It is late, cannot remember but can verify later, but my Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother Baldwin Henderson Jones and Elizabeth Sarah Ann Ragland Jones are buried there (1902 and 1908)Again, guessing at the dates right now along with a son, Robert Henderson Jones. There are others buried there, Rossers, that were kin to my Jones family and there is a separate grave site across the dirt road and it is the Knight family. I am sorry, I do not have any info on your ancestor but MOST of all the Thomas family are buried at Broadway Cemetery because, originally it was the Thomas Cemetery, or at least that is what I have been told all these years. Email me directly, and maybe I can help you out, I have some books and other resources here that I can look and see. What is your name? or at least a first name, is it Daffy? just email me at charlottejonesharrington@yahoo.com and I will see what i can find. I dont check these message boards often....Also, my great great grandmother was Rebecca jane Hinesley! I noticed you were looking for them as well :) Blessings, Charlotte
