    "James and Sarah Crawford, early settlers of Island Creek Township, Jefferson County, Ohio, gave on the 17th day of April, 1828, the highest point of their farm, which they settled in 1796, to the Trustees of the Mt. Tabor Church for a cemetery. This land, one of the highest points in Island Creek Township, looks out over the hills of Ohio and West Virginia. On the same day they gave to the Mt. Tabor M.E. Hurch Trustees and their successors in office, Martin Swickard, Adam Jackman, Garret Albertson, George Hout and James Crawford, Jr., a tract of land across the road from the cemetery, for a church site, 'which now use and occupy the meeting house erected on said premises.' These two tracts of land were 'on the road from Joseph Burson's to John Myers' mill on Island Creek' and were in Sections 29 and 30, Township 7, Range 2. The two tracts of land are contained in one survey, dated Nov. 14, 1827 and recorded on page 9, Jefferson County records. The deed from James and Sarah Crawford to the Trustees of the Mt. Tabor Church covers both of these tracts in the same paper and was signed by James Crawford and Sarah Crawford (with her mark) and was witnessed by John Myers and Abel Crawford in the presence of John Myers, Justice of the Peace; and was 'Recorded May 14th, 1831, in the office for Recording Deeds in said County, in Book M pages 523 and 524*** A. Sutherland, Recorder.'"
