Wilkes:  Rock Creek, deeds, Joseph Porter

Rock Creek Meeting House


Where was the Rock Creek Meeting House? In 1848, Joseph Porter Sr received a grant for 52 acres on “the new road”. The land included 50 acres for himself and another 2 acres for the meeting house in the southeast corner along the road. I think this was somewhere along what is now Rock Creek Rd, between the Hays intersection and Rock Creek Baptist Church.
