Subject: [Q-R] Muddy Creek Friends Cemetery in NC
Date: Saturday, September 04, 1999 11:34AM

Could someone please tell me where the Muddy Creek Friends Cemetery is
located? Also, did they allow outsiders (non Quakers) to be buried there in
the 1830s?

Thanks,
Jill Knitl

----------
The original, early Muddy Creek meeting was between Greensboro and
Kernersville, according to what N.C. Friends tell me. I recall that it has
non-Friends buried there now and several posts have mentioned the North
Carolina practice of acceptance of any neighborhood folks for interment, but
I assume the earlier records only listed the Friends. However, if the
Hinshaw abstracts list someone, I understand that indicates inclusion in the
official records.
