APPLEBY METHODIST CHURCH AND CEMETERY

from
CEMETERY INSCRIPTIONS OF DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC
Compiled by Lillian H. Harley, Pattie W. Heaton, Lillian D. Kizer
Location: The old church is located on Hwy. S-18-19, known as the Old Wire Road, formerly the Old Stagecoach Road from Charleston to Augusta, about six miles southwest of St. George, South Carolina.

History: Appleby Church was originally known as the “Methodist Meeting House,” and was first described in deed of the land from James Herberson to Edward Connor, Richard Radcliff, Jacob Barr, Robert Berry, Richard Berry, Henry Sudduth, William Murray of Orangeburg and Berkeley Districts of the State of South Carolina. This deed is recorded in the Charleston Conveyance Court, Book Y-5, page 395. In that deed two and one-half acres were deeded to these men as trustees for the Methodist Meeting House. The deed locates the land North of the Edisto River near Cattle Creek. At the time of the deed it describes a building already on the land. The date of that deed was the 7th day of August, 1787. The Meeting House appears again on a plat of land owned by James P. Appleby in 1799 in the same location. A small drawing depicting the front of the meeting house even as it appears today appears on this plat and a notation by it “Methodist Meeting House.” It is assumed that the present structure was built about that same time because there is no history of it having burned or having been destroyed or replaced by a later structure. It is a wooden frame structure twenty feet wide and forty feet long, with two front doors, and a pulpit placed between, a divided section in the back with a back door in which the slaves were seated for worship. The building is painted white and kept in good repair by descendants of the original congregation. Memorial services are held annually, and usually well attended by people of the surrounding territory. The Cemetery surrounds the sides and front of the church. It has been stated by one of the early members still living, Mrs. Emma Walters McAlhaney, that many graves are in this cemetery without markers, which is the case in most of the old cemeteries. The earliest marker remaining is that of Honorable Morgan T. Appleby, who died April 27, 1867, aged 53.
J. Gavin Appleby, M.D. (descendant of James P. Appleby)
