Good $3 Was used as a cemetery and is where Robert and Ann Hornaday Stewart were buried. There is nothing left of it now, all the headstones are gone and no church left. The building was used by the Baptists, who organized a society there, until after 1840, when the society built a comfortable frame church across the road, which still stands, but is not much used. John Smith, who died about 1827, devised the lot where the log house stood to any society that would build upon it. A graveyard was also started on the lot and several persons buried there, when it ceased to be used. [wer2yates added this on 11 Jun 2011]
