Macedonia Baptist Church Cemetery Survey

Behind the church

Survey by Linda Hoxit Raxter

Print This Page

Macedonia Church Road in Silversteen Community

Gloucester Township, Transylvania County, NC

Survey by Linda Hoxit Raxter - Last visit 07 NOV 1997

See also Macedonia Baptist Church Cemetery - Across the Road.

It is unknown how the two cemeteries developed. Speculation by church members say that one filled up and the other was started. However, looking at the dates and layout of the two cemeteries suggest they formed together. The families in each cemetery are closely intertwined. Church tradition does say that the location of the church was chosen because it is in the "gap between the two communities". More research is needed.

Macedonia Baptist Church split off of Cathey's Creek Baptist Church around 1842. This was due to the distance members had to travel and the slavery issue. The Macedonia congregation was anti-slavery, or at least tired of all the pro-slavery sermons at Cathey's Creek.
