Cemetery Records

Gilead Associated Reformed Presbyterian Church Cemetery
(Gilead A.R.P. Church Cemetery)

Mecklenburg County, North Carolina


This is my transcription of 475 burials at Gilead A.R.P. Cemetery from photocopies of a list that were sent to me back in the mid-1980's.  The dates of death typed on the list range from 1795 to 1984 & I added a few that I recorded when I visited the cemetery that weren't on the list.  The numbers that precede the names correspond with numbers on 2 maps of the cemetery.

The surnames included in these lists are: Alcorn (7), Alexander (64), Anderson (1), Baker (2), Barkley (7), Beard (21), Berryhill (1), Bell (8), Beaver (2), Blakley (6), Blythe (4), Bowles (2), Brown (4), Buchanan (1), Burgess (2), Cashion (7), Cathey (1), Conley (1), Cosby (1), Davis (2), Dishman (2), Donaldson (1), Duckworth (1), Dunn (2), Eudy (2), Fidler (18), Gailbreath (2), Gibbs (1), Gibby (3), Gibson (15), Goodrum (19), Hanna (7), Harward (1), Hastings (7), Hayden (1), Helms (7), Henderson (1), Herron (1), Hill (1), Hoffman (1), Holloway (2), Honeycutt (2), Houser (2), Houston (1), Howard (4), Hubbard (18), Huffman (1), Irvin (9), Jetton (1), Johnson (3), Johnston (19), Jolly (2), Keistler (1), King (1), Long (8), Lowrie (4), Luckey (3), McAuley/McAulay (14), Morrow (2), Mundy (14), Nance (2), Nantz (6), Norket (8), Osborne (6), Poplin (2), Pressley (1), Price (2), Reagan (3), Reagans (2), Riley (6), Riggins (1), Ritchie (1), Rogers (6), Shaw (1), Sherrill (1), Shinn (4), Sifford (1), Smith (7), Stanley (5), Stephens (17), Stevens (1), Stillwell (24), Talbert (2), Thornton (1), Treadway (1), Tompkins (1), Wilhelm (9), Williams (2), and Withers (4).

I don't believe this is a complete listing through 1984 as some of the pages that I received had an entry/entries cut off at the bottom; but, aside from the photos that I took when I visited the cemetery, it's all that I have on this cemetery that I can share with other researchers.

Parts of dates that are underlined indicate that it was not typed on my copy.  Items in brackets [ ] either indicate that I had difficulty reading my copy or are my notes.  Items in curly brackets { } were the handwritten notes that my aunt wrote on the copy that she sent to me.

I believe that in addition to the quest to get information, genealogists and family historians should equally do something that they can to share information to further the research and knowledge of others. Please support and help free genealogy prosper by sharing your records and/or research -- if you can't put it online, find someone who can.

Always be sure to document your sources fully whenever possible -- genealogical information without sources is considered unreliable. And please give proper research credit to those to whom it belongs (you wouldn't want your work plagiarized by others would you?). Please remember to use the information you find on this site (and the internet in general) as a research aide -- I cannot verify the accuracy of the information.

I hope you find something within this web site to help you in your research. I add information to the site as I transcribe or scan more records, or as they are shared with me by others -- it's always a work in progress
