Quaker Meetings in the Lower Shenandoah Valley and elsewhere

* * * Under construction * * *

Below is a list of the different Friends Meetings that existed in the Shenandoah Valley region and surrounding areas as well as some other areas that members of our McKay & Steer families and other allied families of Quaker roots settled.

Also listed are some other cemeteries and churches that are associated with these families.

Some of the McKays who left the Society of Friends became Baptists and many living in Clarke and Warren counties became affiliated with Bethel Baptist Church and other churches connected to Bethel. In addition to that it is believed that the site which Bethel now stands on was once occupied by Friends. To see more info. on Bethel and these other churches click on this page: The Bethel Memorial, Incorporated.

Any Meeting that is currently a Monthly Meeting or was a Monthly Meeting sometime during it's existence will have a "*" beside it.
