Buck Marsh Baptist Church
There was a graveyard that was part of the original church grounds and what graves that were found were moved to Green Hill Cemetery. Rev. James Ireland is suppoed to have been buried at Buck Marsh but his grave was not found. Buck Marsh later became Berryville Baptist Church. The congregation moved from the original Buck Marsh meeting house to a new building in Berryville. The original church building was abandoned cir 1830s and was in ruins by the Civil War and no longer stands today.
