Rock Quarry Rock Quarry
Looking East from the quarry cemetery one would be facing the location of a cemetery that is near the 2nd LDS church built on Ball Mill Rd.

The old Pike Rd now part of Ball Mill Rd follows along the quarry as far as the road extends today.
Although now a dead end rd, Pike Rd once continued on across the mountain and connected to the other end of the present Pike Rd.
Rock Quarry Rev Worley Grave
Reverand Worley was the pastor of Rock Bottom Church once located near his gravesite.
Why were there so few graves at this cemetery?

Marcus Tedder built Rock Bottom Church once located near where he is buried.

          The Tedder graves were disinterred from the Benjamin Tedder Family Cemetery at the old homeplace.
          A single grave found a short distance away from the Tedder Cemetery was identified as the probable grave of Miles Nance.







Quarry Rd Map





This map shows Pike Rd as being a continual rd BUT part of this road (about midway) is no longer accessible by vehicle.
One needs to travel from Ball Mill Rd to the end; or from the other side beginning at Pike Rd and traveling to the end.
