The Old Shiloh Burying Ground now known as the Shiloh Presbyterian Church cemetery is located one mile southeast of Grover, NC and dates to the battle of Kings Mountain during the American Revolution. Shiloh is one of the oldest cemeteries in old Lincoln County, North Carolina and in old York County, South Carolina.
Family names represented at the Old Shiloh Burying Ground are: Christmas, Crow, Dillingham, Dover, Etters, Estress, Gordon, Hambright, Hardin, Harry, Holmes, Howser, McCarter, Morrow, Patterson, Price, Randall and Williams.
Shiloh is now under the wing of the Historic Shelby Foundation for tax-deductible contributions for the restoration (repair) of this very historic cemetery. There is great need for major maintenance of the cemetery and grave marker repairs for these ancestors.
Will you help with a contribution to save Shiloh out of respect for our family roots and for the cemetery as a whole?
