The only thing I can tell you for sure is that George R. and Sarah are buried in the Crow Graveyard on Old Furnace Rd. on Tipton Ridge. I am told their graves are unmarked, but my grandma is supposed to be next to them. I was there for her funeral, but at the time, I was in no mood to look around. You take Rt. 52 through Ravenna, then up the mountain. It flattens out, and The Furnace Rd. turns off to the left.

Roan’s Creek Church of Johnson Co., Tennessee
From Charles Moreland, 15508 Saranac Drive, Whittier, CA 90604

Excerpts from WAGS Bulletin, V. 27 #2, 1998, page 143
Glimpses of One Hundred Years of Pine Grove Church History
Submitted by Mary McBride, 5003 Sunset Bluff, Huntsville, AL 35803:

“Due to the courtesy of Brother John A. LOWE, who has the records of old Roans Creek Church, afterwards Taylorsville, now Mountain City, the mother of the churches in Johnson City (Tennessee), I find that Pine Grove was organized in the ‘year of our Lord 1837’ so says the old minute and a most interesting document I find it to be.”

Charles Moreland wrote to Ms. McBride, “This is regarding the Pine Grove Church history which you submitted . . . What interested me in particular was the statement ‘Brother John A. LOWE has the records of old Roans Creek Church.’ Since Roans Creek church’s records must go back much farther than Pine Creek and Pine Creek started in 1837, I am now wondering why I never heard about this church before. I have been researching the MORELAND and COFFEY families in this area for over 10 years and I have nothing re Roans Creek Church. Those families were there from the 1790’s to at least the 1850’s. Now the question is how can I get in touch with the person who has the Roan Creek records today?”

Unfortunately Ms. McBride hasn’t located those records, however, she is continuing to look for them.
