Comment:Old Church is a Presbyterian church which was old when I was boy back in the mid 1960's.There is a cemetery there beside the church that has graves dating back well into the 1800's.About 10 or 15 miles down the road there is also Crystal Cemetery, which also has quite a few Shoemakes in their final rest.
