      1820 Randolph County, NC - records are "missing"

      REF: Tommy Lemonds
      The following info is from "Randolph County - 1779 - 1979"
      Randolph Methodist Espiscopal (UMC) 1831 Liberty Township
      Tabernacle Methodist Espiscpal 1851 Tabernacle Township
      Shiloh Methodist Espiscopal 1790 Liberty Township
      Bethel Methodist Espiscopal; and 1818 Providence Township
      Methodist Protestant 1884
      Bethel Methodist Espiscopal (UMC) 1909 New Market Township

      Shiloh Methodist Church is located in northern Randolph County, NC very near the county line adjoining Guilford/Alamance/Randolph counties. It is a church built in the mid-1800's on land donated by the Julian family. It is located just off highway 421. I have several of my Pugh ancestors buried there.

      In Providence TWP. which is west of Liberty TWP. in Rand. Co., NC, in the Bethel United Methodist Church cemetery there is a Zebedee WOOD, b. [29 Apr 1799] d. 17 Oct 1874 Age 75y 5m 18d. Just prior to him was a stone in 1955 which read Polly WOOD, b. 4 Feb 1796 d. 12 Jul 1847. In 1978 when Francine HOLT SWAIM read this cemetery she noted the stone was lying on the ground and badly flaked off. When I read it in 1996 I found no such marker. On the other side of Zebedee WOOD is Wm. W. WOOD, b. 24 Nov 1824 d. 1 Oct 1854 Aged 29y 11m 23d. For your info and because it is an older generation in Row 10 Stone 4 is Col. John WOOD, b. [15 Dec 1780] d. 25 Oct 1851 Age d70y 10m 10d; Dr. Lorenzo WOOD, b. 13 Oct 1807 d. 15 Mar 1854; Row 11 has David WOOD, b. 6 Nov 1759 d. 26 Oct 1830 and next to him is Jane WOOD, b. [27 May 1759] d. 27 Sep 1826 Aged 66y 4m; Row 14 Stone 1 is Wileb WOOD, d. 1 Aug 1828 Aged 75y and Stone 2 is John WOOD, d. 13 Fed[sic] 1828 Aged 80y. At Shiloh United Methodist Church there is Zebedee WOOD, Esq., b. 26 Feb 1745 d. 11 Jul 1824 in the 80th year; Mary WOOD, b. 31 Oct 1744 d. 17 Oct 1784?
      Do you know the correct death date for this Mary WOOD? The bracketed dates are not on the stone, but found in earlier readings or somewhere.
