The Lawrence Cemetery (in the Dukes Creek Community, southwest of Robertstown, off of Alternate Hwy. 75) in White County, Georgia, is located at the convergence of Ash Creek into Dukes Creek.
It is said that the Methodist Episcopal Church which was established in the area in 1829 was near the Lawrence Cemetery.The Rev. Francis BIRD (1785-1861) and his son-in-law Thomas M. Hughes (both found in Curtis genealogy) were among trustees of the church.
A Civil War soldier, Wesley R. LEDFORD (1838-1913), is also said to be buried "at Dukes Creek" in White County.
1. Since most Curtis folks and some Ledfords were Methodist Episcopal Church members, could it be that the "Dukes Creek" cemetery referred to often is the Lawrence Cemetery?
2. What was the name of the Methodist Episcopal Church which was established near Dukes Creek in 1829, in Habersham (now White) County, Georgia?
