Bear Creek Baptist Church was organized on March 30 1792.  The organization was effected by the
Rev William Petty and the Rev Lazarus Whitehead.   The church was built around 1856, remodeled  
             and additions made down through the years.

Damage to some of the older stones in Bear Creek Cemetery

On July 4 2004, during a visit to the cemetery, I noticed damage to some of the older stones
in the Bear Creek Cemetery. As circular lines were visible around the stones it was evident   
(to me) that some sort of weedeating device was causing the damage.

The pastor has been notified and the matter has been turned over to the cemetery committee. 
Hopefully, this problem will quickly be resolved. Never-the-less, the damage to these and other
stones cannot be undone.

One of the damaged stones at Bear Creek Church Cemetery, for William Marlow.
Wanted to get a better photo of this stone, to enable reading all of the inscription. This will never be!
